In our review of Marvel’s Spider-Man on PC, we said: “This is an excellent PC port with Steam Deck support that elevates to it to a must-own for anyone with Valve’s portable. While Sony may never make a PlayStation Vita 2, if its support of the Steam Deck continues as more and more PlayStation exclusives migrate to PC, it’ll soon feel like the next-generation Sony handheld many of us have always wanted.”
The remastered version of Spider-Man is developed by Nixxes, which Sony acquired last year, and will be released for PC on August 12, 2022.
In a post on the PlayStation blog, Head of Franchise Strategy & Studio Relations, Insomniac Games, Ryan Schneider added: “We’re grateful to our PlayStation Studios partner studio Nixxes Software for fully optimizing Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales for PC.
“Our production team has been thrilled with Nixxes’ collaborative spirit and commitment to quality. We see a lot of ourselves when working with Nixxes.”
Jurjen Katsman, Nixxes’ Founder and Senior Director of Development said of working on the project: “I am extremely pleased with our collaboration with Insomniac on the Marvel’s Spider-Man series, the shared support provided between our teams and their dedication to quality above all is inspiring.”
