Spider-Man Miles Morales has been announced on the PS5 game reveal stream, coming to PS5 this Holiday 2020.
The follow-on from PS4's Marvel's Spider-Man game will be an expanded Miles Morales storyline as an "enhancement" of the 2018 original. The set-up seems similar to other Sony-owned studios standalone expansion 'semi-sequels' like Uncharted: Lost Legacy and Horizon: Frozen Wilds. Spider-Man Miles Morales will also be developed by Insomniac Games, featuring the protagonist character from hit animated movie Into The Spider-Verse.
Miles Morales replaces Peter Parker in the comic canon of Marvel's Spider-Man series after Parker's untimely death. It's unclear if Peter Parker is still kicking around as everyone's favorite insect-man hybrid in the short trailer above, however the two do meet at the end of Insomniac's last Spider-Man game.
Miles appears in 2018's Insomniac-developed Spider-Man, with Nadji Jeter reprising his role from previous games. A pre-spider bite Miles is playable at certain points in the game with an emphasis on stealth gameplay. He is eventually bitten by an experimental Oscorp spider, and in a post-credits scene, reveals his powers to Peter, who in turn reveals being Spider-Man.
Spider-Man Miles Morales was announced as part of Sony's PS5 game reveal stream, alongside dozens of other titles coming to the next gen console at launch or shortly after.
