Sony’s big PlayStation 5 reveal event went off without a hitch last week, but perhaps the only blunder the platform holder made was confusing the entire Internet about the nature of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. We’d initially assumed – correctly, as it turns out – that it was an Uncharted: The Lost Legacy-style spin-off, but poorly worded comments suggested it was an enhanced remaster. Insomniac Games, to its credit, quickly cleared things up by confirming that it’s a standalone game.
Now, boss Jim Ryan has told CNET that accusations of the organisation “misleading” fans are unfounded: “I can safely say that we would not effectively lead the next-gen portion of the show with something that was either trivial or misleading.” The takeaway, then? This is the big deal it initially appeared to be when it was first announced. We’ll find out more about the title as we edge closer to its Holiday 2020 release.
