The community director for Insomniac Games, James Stevenson, just revealed that Marvel's Spider-Man will take 20 hours to beat. Stevenson gave the figure while answering questions on Twitter.
our average play tester took around 20 hours on default difficulty, but some spent a lot longer if they did a ton of side quests/activities— James Stevenson (@JamesStevenson) August 26, 2018
Now while mature gamers know that game length isn't everything -- I'm not sure if my life is significantly more enriched by 300 hours of Borderlands 2 than by 7 hours of Max Payne 2 -- but it's important to note that this figure was the average taken from multiple playtesters.
Stevenson added that the number is based on how long it takes for someone to beat the game on the default "Amazing" difficulty -- as opposed to the easier "Friendly Neighborhood" difficulty or more challenging "Spectacular" difficulty -- while doing only some of the quests, activities and challenges.
Players who aim to engage with more content or take their sweet time will take a lot longer to finish the game. So basically, if you're hoping to beat the game over the weekend when it releases exclusively on PS4 on September 7, it's totally possible.

It’s a pity Massive Entertainment can’t seem to make a good story out of what I think is an interesting universe set in the modern world, but as it stands, despite its shortcomings, The Division 2 is one of the best looter shooters out today.
