After the exciting news that Square-Enix are teaming with up with Marvel to produce a video game based on The Avengers, we began to wonder whether it would be connected to Insomniac Games’ upcoming Spider-Man PS4 game.
Well, we posed the question to Insomniac on Twitter:
@StartReplay We're excitedly creating an all-new Spider-Man game. Today's Avengers
announcement looks awesome! Great time for Marvel fans

There you go, confirmation that Insomniac’s PlayStation 4 Spider-Man game is set in its own universe.
Are you happy it isn’t connected to Marvel’s ambitious Avengers game? Or does the thought of an untethered set of video games put a frown on your face?
I’m incredibly happy that Insomniac’s exclusive PS4 Spider-Man game has its own universe. Whilst it would’ve been nice, in some aspects, to have a cross-platform Marvel universe, it means any sequels Insomniac might make won’t be constricted to a specific storyline.
