Story Highlights

  • Despite initial rumors of a ban due to LGBTQ+ content, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is confirmed for release in the Middle East.
  • Age ratings in the Middle East confirm that the game is suitable for audiences aged 16 or above.

It’s official, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is coming to the Middle East. While it was rumored to be banned due to the inclusion of LGBTQ+ content, it seems both Insomniac Games and the General Authority for Media Regulation have come to an agreement. The VGAR_SA Twitter account also confirms that the game will be suitable for audiences aged 16 or above, ensuring that it aligns with appropriate content guidelines. 

It is important to acknowledge that discussions surrounding content restrictions and cultural sensitivities are ongoing and can vary across different regions. In the past, several games like GTA 5, The Last of Us Part 2, and Final Fantasy 16 have faced bans in the Middle East due to various reasons, such as explicit content, religious sensitivities, etc.
