Marvel’s Spider-Man was a PlayStation 4 exclusive that absolutely blew up in popularity.

For many, it was this reveal was the best part of the entire event. It certainly stuck through the entirety of the event, which was over an hour long. Nothing more than a glimpse and the title was announced to the world on Thursday’s event. While many of us believed we were getting an entirely new full title, a sequel to the massively successful 2018 title. Turns out, that’s not the case. In an interview with Telegraph.co.uk, Sony’s description of the game gives us a better idea of what to expect.
Spider-Man for PS5 an “expansion”
Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Simon Rutter explained that Sider-Man: Miles Morales is built on PS4’s 2018 exclusive. Yes, the game will be enhanced for PS5 and will also have a significant expansion attached to it.
“I guess you could call it an expansion and an enhancement to the previous game. There’s a substantial Miles Morales component, which is the expansion element, but also within the game as well there’s been major enhancements to the game and the game engine, obviously deploying some of the major PlayStation 5 technology and features.”
Many expected a whole new entry in the franchise. While this is certain to disappoint many, it’s still something to be excited about. Spider-Man was, no doubt, one of the best games in recent years. A significant expansion of the same isn’t bad at all. Moreover, Insomniac is surely working on a new installment as we speak.
Rutter pointed out something interesting regarding the expansion. He said it would make a fine example of how gaming will change from the current generation to the next.
“I think what is very interesting for everyone to see is how familiar games might be to some degree changed through the workings of PlayStation 5.”
