The news was revealed during Sony PlayStation’s The Future of Gaming event, which delivered a first-look at upcoming titles for the PlayStation 5.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales showcased the game running on the PlayStation 5 engine and revealed Miles Morales as the playable protagonist.
Players were thrust into New York for the original game and the city is set to return with a Christmas setting, no doubt to coincide with the game’s release towards the end of the year.

It’s unclear whether Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a full sequel to Insomniac Games’ first iteration back in 2018 or more akin to a spin-off, much like the company did with Infamous: Second Light. No other information outside of the release date has been released yet.
The original game garnered wide critical acclaim with a Metacritic score of 87 percent. GameSpot described the game as a “superior Spider-Man experience that leaves a lasting impression,” before awarding the game a 9/10.
The company also announced Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was coming to the PlayStation 5 with two new trailers, one of which showed the game in action on the system. No release date was confirmed.
