After being purchased by Sony, Insomniac Games is landing on the PlayStation 5 with a significant splash. Not only is the studio working on Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, it’s also introducing a new chapter in the world of Marvel’s Spider-Man just in time for launch.
Unveiled during a recent PS5 event, the upcoming open-world adventure won’t be a traditional sequel, but will instead enhance the existing game with an abundance of graphical features and new gameplay mechanics. This will include Miles Morales as a playable character with his very own storyline.

What is Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales?
As we mentioned before, this isn’t a complete sequel to the brilliant open-world experience. Instead, it is building upon the original’s foundations with new visual enhancements, content and more. Oh, and it’s exclusive to PS5. Sorry, last-gen players.
Following its announcement, there was some confusion surrounding the nature of Miles Morales, which has since been cleared up by Insomniac Games. Speaking to The Telegraph, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s EVP head of European Business, Simon Rutter said it would include “major enhancements” to the PS4 title.
“I guess you could call it an expansion and an enhancement to the previous game,” he said. “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.”

Marvel’s Spider-Man story – where does it take place?
Given that we discover Miles Morales obtains his superpowers during the first game’s conclusion, it stands to reason this expansion will take place after those events. Knowing this, hopefully we’ll learn more about the fantastic cliffhanger ending and the events that could lead up to the sequel.
A number of mysteries surround The Osborne Family, and it’s only a matter of time until Peter Parker and company find out the truth. We’ll avoid discussing specific spoilers here, since it’s worth experiencing for yourself.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales: Release date
While we didn’t get a proper date, we do know that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be coming Holiday 2020. This most probably means that this will be a launch title for the PS5 and that’s certainly fine by us. Kicking off a new console generation with a sequel, or even a spin-off, to one of the current gen’s best games seems like a very clever idea from Sony.
