However, a small cold shower arrived in the morning: a Sony executive revealed in an interview that the game would be nothing more than a remaster of Marvel’s Spider-Man of 2018.
A very full-bodied expansion featuring the “new” Spider-Man, Miles Morales, instead of Peter Parker, would have been added to the original game, he said.
This is the version with which we went on today, a little disappointed perhaps by the fact that it is not a real “Spider-Man 2” but only a remastering operation of a game released just two years ago.
However, Insomniac Games has just clarified through Twitter that it is a «Standalone game» of which further details will be revealed «In a future date».
The clarification comes a few minutes after a warning was issued by Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier, who had advised that he heard that the Sony executive’s statement would be wrong.
“Spider-Man Miles Morales is not an expansion or an improvement or a remaster, despite the comments of a Sony executive”, it is read in his tweet.
“It’s not even Spider-Man 2. It’s a whole new game, standalone, similar in size to Uncharted The Lost Legacy”, not surprisingly born as Uncharted 4 DLC.
Mystery solved, therefore: Spider-Man Miles Morales will be available in late 2020, presumably at the launch of SS5 as a total exclusive.
