Sure, but that'd at least mean that they'll delay to the second half of 2018, probably, instead of into 2019. Also Insomniac is a pretty well managed studio and no matter what they say I still think Marvel has a specific release time in mind for Spider-Man that they really rather wouldn't miss. And Bluepoint is really efficient and good at what they are doing as well.I can easily see them fitting Shadow of the Colossus, God of War, and Spider-Man within the first 6 months of 2018. Look how many games they crammed into the first 4 months this year. Most of which ended up reviewing at an 85 or higher. Granted, that wasn't just Sony's doing.
Spider-Man and SotC are actually two Sony projects that I'm fairly certain will not be officially delayed at least.
