Earlier this month, Sony announced that Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be a launch game for Playstation 5. The highly anticipated follow up to Marvel’s Spider-Man will arrive in stores roughly two years after the original game. But just because Miles is the lead in the sequel, it doesn’t mean Peter Parker’s story is done.
Via the Playstation blog, Insomniac Games’ creative team revealed that Spider-Man: Miles Morales is “more akin to a game like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy in terms of overall scope.” But they also promised “a full story arc with Miles” that “is an important, heartfelt, emotional and essential experience to expanding the Marvel’s Spider-Man universe.”
Creative director Bryan Intihar also set the stage for the story of the upcoming game.
“Let’s set the scene for the game a little more,” wrote Intihar. “It’s now wintertime, about a year after the events of the first game. Marvel’s New York is covered in snow, and just before Christmas break, a war between an energy corporation and a high-tech criminal army has broken out. Miles’s new home in Harlem is at the heart of the battle.”

“Many of you fans have wondered if Peter Parker is OK,” added Intihar. “Don’t worry, we still have much of Peter’s story left to tell. But this game is all about Miles, a critical part of our Spider-Man universe, and you won’t want to miss what happens.”
Spider-Man: Miles Morales will hit stores alongside the PS5 this holiday season.
