Insominaic Games has announced Marvel Spider-Man Miles Morales.
The game was shown for the first time during a PS5 unveil event on Thursday, when a holiday 2020 release confirmed.
UPDATE: Sony has clarified that Insomniac’s PS5 Spider-Man game is a remastered version of the original with a “substantial” expansion.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: The huge success of the title contributed to Sony Interactive Entertainment acquiring California-based Insomniac Games, the developer also known for Resistance and Ratchet and Clank.
Significantly, SIE has been using Spider-Man to demonstrate PlayStation 5’s new SSD tech.
During its corporate strategy meeting in May 2019, CEO Kenichiro Yoshida showed a video comparing load times in Marvel’s Spider-Man running on both PS4 Pro and its next-generation PlayStation hardware.
As described in the first PlayStation 5 details article, the next-gen PlayStation demonstrates dramatically reduced load times compared to PS4 Pro, with the camera able to fast travel near-instantaneously and speed through the city without pausing for asset loading.
Sony also has announced Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart during Thursday’s PS5 event.
