UK retailer Base sparked speculation this weekend after a PS4 listing for Marvel's Avengers specified that Spider-Man would be an exclusive character of the Sony version of the game - however the retailer has now told IGN that the information was "not correct". Base.com originally listed the PS4 version of the game with a description that said, "Play as Spider-man exclusively on PS4". After speculation began that it had listed unannounced information, Base removed the mention of the exclusive character (you can see the original listing here), only furthering internet intrigue. However, speaking to IGN, a Base spokesperson told IGN the information was wrong, and had been present on the page for over a year: "The information was removed from our product page as it was not correct. We removed the information as soon as we found out that it was not correct. It had been on the product since E3 June 2019 (11 June 2019)." The spokesperson clarified that the offending line did not come from a publisher or supplier. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/07/29/hawkeye-reveal-trailer-for-marvels-avengers-4k"] The speculation was informed by the fact that Sony owns the film rights to Spider-Man, PlayStation exclusively releases Spider-Man games, and the fact that developer Crystal Dynamics has previously said that the PS4 version of the game would include "surprises" for PlayStation owners. There's also the fact that, when revealing Hawkeye as a post-launch character, he was seemingly listed as the second of four planned heroes to come to the game as free updates - which would leave the possibility that an exclusive Spider-Man would be the first. While it remains possible that Spider-Man could appear in the game, it seems Base wasn't working with any privileged information. Publisher Square Enix has not replied to a request for comment. Marvel's Avengers starts a series of beta tests this week - here's everything you'll be able to do in the demo versions of the upcoming hero game.
