Now that Insomniac Games has finally added the Raimi Suit from the films that started out in 2001, fans of Marvel's Spider-Man are losing their minds with excitement and the sudden need to apologize.
When the studio revealed the three new suits that were being introduced alongside the upcoming DLC, players were wondering just where the heck the iconic Raimi suit was. When the noise of that feedback became deafening, the studio was forced to respond - which sent another wave of backlash.
Previously Insomniac Games told their fans on Twitter, “Listening doesn’t mean we always will do what people tell us to. We hear you. Hearing doesn’t mean we always act or follow.” Needless to say, people weren't happy with that particular response but now those same players are scrambling to apologize - especially given that the studio is offering this highly demanded suit as a free update:

The fact that you added the most requested suit for free shows how much love you guys have for the Spidey community; and that’s just the cherry on top of the cake, that is the most amazing superhero game ever made. You guys are the best! Happy holidays Insomniac!— Nando Dip (@DipNando) December 20, 2018

I didn’t ever expect to see the suit nor would I have been upset, you have gone above and absolutely beyond Insominiac with this game. I’m so sorry that you guys have to have dealt with all the sour grapes in the fan base, I am truly thankful for what you’ve done. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/o5Cf2svaiT— Cosmic Gaijin (@ArtisteAzure) December 20, 2018
