The latest Spider-Man game, dubbed as Spider-Man: Miles Morales, was unveiled during the PlayStation 5 games reveal event, and everyone promptly lost their collective s*** over the prospect of a next generation Spider-Man game.
While this is true, it’s not really what you think it is. In an interview with The Telegraph, the head of European Business for Sony Interactive Entertainment Simon Rutter explained that Miles Morales is more of an expansion rather than a sequel to the first game, and will include enhancements when it releases for the PlayStation 5.
“I guess you could call it an expansion and an enhancement to the previous game.”
“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.”
It was probably too early to expect a full blown Sequel anyways, so this really was a welcome surprise. If anything, Spider-Man: Miles Morales may give us a peek into what a next gen sequel could potentially hold for fans of the series.
Some may be disappointed, but the good thing about it is that we won’t need to wait too long to play the game as Spider-Man: Miles Morales is headed to the PlayStation 5 this Holiday 2020, potentially as a launch title.
