Sony has officially clarified that Playstation 5’s Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is not a sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man –
*This post has since been updated with new confirmation details from the game’s developer*
Yesterday we were presented with the shocking but heavily warranted reveal of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales which will be arriving on the Playstation 5 this Holiday Season. Although we all thought and preemptively assumed that this was a direct sequel to Insomniac Games’ hit Spider-Man video game. Sony’s Executive Vice-President head of European Business, Simon Rutter, revealed that the title is instead a substantial expansion using the remastered version of Marvel’s Spider-Man from the Playstation 4.
“There’s a substantial Miles Morales component – which is the expansion element – but also within the game as well there’s been major enhancements to the game and the game engine, obviously deploying some of the major PlayStation 5 technology and features,”
This might come as a displeasure to some gamers who were expecting a full-blown sequel to the hit video game after all the Mile Morales set up we got throughout the game. And while Rutter’s statement is somewhat direct but also very vague, there is still not real indication of how much of an expansion this game will be.
Will it be something like the likes of Destiny: The Rise of Iron, or Destiny 2: Shadowkeep or even Uncharted: The Lost Legacy? That remains to be seen.
UPDATE: It has now been revealed by Insomniac Games that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is indeed a standalone game.
