June 11, 2020

With the next-gen on the horizon, Sony pulled back the curtain in a big way on what to expect from the PS5 with its long-awaited “The Future of Gaming” reveal event. After months of waiting, we finally learned more about the next-gen system and some of the first-party exclusives that will make their way over to the PS5. As we saw during the presentation, that will include a sequel to 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man, which we now know is called Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

During Sony’s PS5: The Future of Gaming reveal event, Sony officially revealed that a sequel to 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man is in the works for the PS5, and will be coming Holiday 2020. The trailer confirmed that Miles Morales will seemingly take the forefront of the sequel as a playable character for this story, jumping off what we saw of his journey with Peter Parker in the original game. You can check out the full reveal trailer below:

According to the announcement trailer, Insomniac Games will be at the helm of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which appears to be in development alongside another game announced by the studio for PS5, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. No firm release date was given just yet for the game, but it seems like we can expect the Miles-focused Spider-Man title to arrive alongside the PS5 when it debuts this holiday season, putting it within the system’s launch.

Given the huge success that Marvel’s Spider-Man was for Sony and Insomniac when it released for PS4 in 2018, it was pretty much a given that we would see a follow-up to the acclaimed superhero action game. That said, the idea of playing a brand new Spider-Man game on the PS5 is definitely an exciting one, especially with Miles Morales at the center of it.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will release for PS5 in Holiday 2020.
