Ever since the PS5 was officially revealed, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was one of the key launch titles that many had their eye on. But earlier this month, we also get a neat surprise or two. First was that Miles Morales would also be coming to PS4, and the other was that Marvel’s Spider-Man would also be getting a PS5 remaster of its own. With the latter, however, it seems there’s been a lack of clarity about some things. Well, developer Insomniac Games took it upon themselves to clear up some things, though some may not like it.

Via the official Twitter, the developer confirmed two things. When asked if there would be a physical standalone release they confirmed there were no plans to release one. It’s worth noting that, as of now, it has not clarified if there will be any standalone release at all and the developer did not respond to questions others asked about a digital standalone release. As it stands now, the only known way to get a copy of the remaster is by buying the Ultimate Edition of Miles Morales.

The second thing was about the potential of PS4 owners of the original Marvel’s Spider-Man to get an upgrade for the PS5 remaster. While not explicitly confirming or denying anything, they did say they would provide more information soon. The only details they gave was that an upgrade option was being “thought about,” which seems to imply there is not one in place, at least yet. There was an alleged conversation that leaked where Marvel Games Director of Production Eric Monacelli explicitly confirmed there was no upgrade option, but nothing official has been said yet.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will launch alongside the PS5 on November 12th, as well as the PS4. Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered will be available to those who purchase the Ultimate Edition on PS5.
