‘Spider-Man: Miles Morales’ is set to release during the 2020 Holiday Season.
As part of the PS5’s detailed reveal broadcast, newly-acquired developer Insomniac Games showcased a teaser trailer for their sequel to the blockbuster PS4 hit: Marvel’s Spider-Man.
Officially announced Spider-Man: Miles Morales, this sequel will not be a traditional follow-up featuring Peter Parker, and instead, will star the beloved titular character from the now-defunct Ultimate Marvel comic’s universe and Into The Spider-Verse movies: Miles Morales. For those who played 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man, many will remember Miles as a highly influential playable character and protégé, whose storyline as the son of a police officer turned sacrificial hero, was impactful to the game’s main story. In this sequel, Miles must be coming to terms with his newfound spider-powers as the original game, and subsequent DLC, had left room for Miles to gain some tutilage under Peter Parker.
With an expected release date for the PS5 set sometime during the 2020 holiday season, this highly anticipated sequel to one of the most financially successful superhero videogames of all time, comes as somewhat of a surprise, as many fans did not expect this new game to debut this early.
Insomniac, who has had a longstanding multi-generational relationship with the Playstation since its first iteration, has been responsible for many of the company’s acclaimed hits spanning over a 20 year period, with titles such as Spyro The Dragon, Ratchet and Clank, and of course: Marvel’s Spider-Man. Insomniac has been a critical partner and eventually subsidiary of Sony since the company bought Insomniac in August for 229 million. News of this game’s debut also answers a major question of when, as getting a release date to this sequel has been one of Sony’s top priorities, with the game serving as what many could see as the flagship for its next generational console.
