A week ago now, Insomniac Games alongside the announcement for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart unveiled Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. However, while the nostalgic return of the titular duo is announced for PlayStation 5 as a full game, the latter was not. Initially, the announcement for the Spider-Man experience was interpreted to be a unique experience that the trailer illustrated to be a completely new game.
But it was clarified later on that was not the case. Instead, the new title was disclosed to be a “standalone game” rather than a full game. At the same time, it was also suspected that Miles Morales would be a expansion DLC which would segue a PlayStation 5 version for Marvel’s Spider-Man, but that was later proven to not be true also.
In a new blog post, Insomniac Games clarified on the grey areas for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. In that, the developer confirms of previous predictions which entail that the game would be similar in structure to Uncharted: The Lost legacy or Infamous First Light.
Our team at Insomniac has been working incredibly hard to bring you a fantastic Miles Morales adventure since we concluded development on Marvel’s Spider-Man. You’ll experience a full story arc with Miles, one that’s more akin to a game like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy in terms of overall scope. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is an important, heartfelt, emotional and essential experience to expanding the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe. And we hope it will be for you as well.Brian Horton, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Creative Director – Insomniac Games
Giving more context to the base of this new storyline, Insomniac Games explains that Miles Morales will be taking place about a year after the events of the 2018, name-sharing title. Taken from the trailer, the game will be posed in the middle of the holiday season as you take control of the titular protagonist, Miles Morales.
Being advertised for a next-generation release, Insomniac Games continues by revealing that countless assets have been updated to appropriately complement the capabilities of the PlayStation 5. That means in-game textures for buildings, characters, and other objects have been redone. Raytracing is also stated to be a standing pillar in visual flaunts for Miles Morales. Instant loading alongside intuitive DualSense support is also listed to be present in the full game.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will release for PlayStation 5 in holiday 2020 for PlayStation 5.
