When the PS5 was announced last June, the first promo that fans got a look at was for Spider-Man spinoff, Spider-Man: Miles Morales. We don't have a release date for the game yet, but the hype train continues to chug.

While some think this is the direct sequel to Insomniac's first Spider-Man title, this is more of a spinoff akin to that of Uncharted: Lost Legacy. Creative director Bruan Horton had this to say about Miles Morales, "This is a full arc for Miles Morales that started in Spider-Man… We really are completing this hero's coming of age in our game. It is a complete story."

While Miles does have some integral parts in the first Spider-Man game, it seemed fitting for Insomniac to give him his own contained story. Horton continues:

"When we started crafting it… we realized that, with a little bit more of a compact storytelling style, we could tell a very emotionally impactful story that would fit really well as an experience that would take Spider-Man 1 and [Miles Morales] and do justice to this character."

Though this is Miles' own story, I have a feeling that Insomniac is still going to use the game to set up the direct sequel to Spider-Man. After all, the first game did tease us with Miles' origin; it seems fitting that all these titles would try to help tell each other's stories moving forward.

No release date has been set for Spider-Man: Miles Morales, but it's expected to be available when the PS5 launches sometime in the holiday season.
