If you were disappointed by the possibility that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales could be just an expansion of the original game, Insomniac Games just shared good news.
According to the developer, the title is a standalone game, and it’s the “next adventure in the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe.”
Insomniac also mentions that more information about the game will be shared “at a future date.”
You can read the clarification below.
This directly contradicts the information provided by a Sony Interactive Entertainment executive earlier today, but of course, Insomniac Games is a lot more familiar with its own game.
At the moment, we don’t really know much about Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. We’ll have to see if “standalone game” indicates something similar to Uncharted: The Lost legacy or inFamous: First Light as it’s likely.
Hats off to Insomniac for managing to develop a standalone story on a different console in such a short time. While it likely uses most of the map from the original title, it’s still a very respectable feat.
That being said, it’s certainly exciting to know that we’ll soon be able to revisit New York City as Spider-Man on a brand-new console.

The game is scheduled to release for PS5 this Holiday season. It’s quite likely that it’ll be a launch title for the console.
