Latest rumor regarding Spider-Man: Miles Morales originated on Reddit, where user 77good123 posted an alleged screenshot of an article from Game Informer magazine that briefly talks about a remastered version of Marvel's Spider-Man.

Insomniac Games has yet to officially confirm whether they are shipping Miles Morales with a free copy of Spider-Man PS4 remaster and they never even talked about working on an updated version of original Marvel's Spider-Man as well.

Sony previously used original Spider-Man game to showcase amazing power of their next-gen console hardware for a comparison of loading times between PS4 and PS5 systems, where the latter made loading screen almost non-existent.

Insomniac and Sony are counting on Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales big time to be a seller of newest gaming console this holiday season, featuring titular teenager hero from Brooklyn on first official box art for future PlayStation 5 games.

Insomniac's hugely successful 2018 Spider-Man game has led PS4 player community to expect a follow-up title for next-gen console and even though not a traditional sequel, Miles Morales will be a spin-off like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

In essence, Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a companion game to its 2018 predecessor and adding a remastered version of Marvel's Spider-Man would only add greater value for fans to purchase a copy on PlayStation 5 at launch on holiday 2020.

Sony Interactive Entertainment allowed their first-party developers to offer players higher frame rate or better resolution. Marvel's Spider-Man was smoothly running at 30 FPS on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro consoles.

Insomniac has yet to clear out what compromises will be made to get 4K/60 FPS output for Spider-Man: Miles Morales. It could very well be that turning on Performance Mode will disable real-time ray tracing and other rendering effects.

Given a different and multicultural background he comes from, Miles needed his own game to explore his origin story. He will be having a new plot, set-pieces, villains and unique quests to take on within New York City of Marvel's Spider-Man.

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is DLC or Standalone Game?

Insomniac Games confirms that Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be a standalone game for PS5.

Given how much of a success 2018 superhero action-adventure title Marvel's Spider-Man from developer Insomniac Games and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment was, a follow-up sequel became almost inevitable at this point.

In recent digital showcase for PlayStation 5 Reveal Event, next chapter of Marvel's friendly neighborhood wall-crawler is unveiled and people are heavily confused whether it's a DLC to previous game or a full standalone experience.

A recent interview published by The Telegraph with PlayStation executive earlier has lead entire gaming community being confused about newly revealed spin-off game Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales for upcoming PlayStation 5.

One of the most exciting takeaways from PS5 digital event was Miles Morales and that hype has quickly faded out when it was revealed not to be a full-game but a DLC expansion to Marvel's Spider-Man game, enhanced for next-gen console.

In an attempt to dismiss confusion and rumors among fans after PS5 reveal event, Insomniac had to come out announcing Spider-Man: Miles Morales is in fact a standalone adventure set within Marvel's Spider-Man universe and not a DLC.

On behalf of Sony Interactive Entertainment, executive vice president and European business operations head Simon Rutter referred Spider-Man: Miles Morales to be "an expansion and an enhancement" of original Spider-Man game for PS4.

Rutter was implying that Spider-Man would be playable on PS5 console, pointing out Insomniac Games working on major enhancements and game engine, most likely to install some groundbreaking features of PlayStation 5 technology.

Sony successfully acquired Insomniac last year but has yet to announce a PS5 version of Marvel's Spider-Man. However, they used footage from the PS4-exclusive game for an early PlayStation 5 tech demo last month, highlighting key-features.

Though smaller in length than many traditional games, Sony will sell the game as standalone title for PlayStation 5, according to an insider. Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier compared Miles Morales to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

Originally, developer Naughty Dog attempted to work on Lost Legacy as an expansion for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End but ended up releasing it as a standalone yet relatively shorter than a full-priced game in 2017, priced $39.99 only.

A title card from Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales announcement mentions the game as "PlayStation Exclusive", not outright specifying if Sony will be keeping this one to PS5 console only or will release a PS4 version in near future.

Sony never talked about anything similar to Smart Delivery system of Microsoft, which offers free Xbox Series X upgrades for Xbox One games. Leaving these issues unanswered leaves a question of transparency to their consumer base.

PlayStation 4-exclusive title Marvel's Spider-Man was a massive hit, outselling Batman: Arkham Asylum on release. Sony is eager to repeat similar level of success with Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales when it arrives on holiday 2020.

Marvel's Spider-Man Easter Egg Refers to Ant-Man

Easter egg within Marvel's Spider-Man makes reference to Hank Pym, better known as superhero Ant-Man.

Aside from exploring many popular Marvel properties, 2018 PlayStation 4-exclusive action-adventure game Marvel's Spider-Man from developer Insomniac Games has a lot of references to other movies and video games media.

Even after 18 months of its release, enthusiastic fans are still seeing new Easter eggs hidden in-game. Most recently, Reddit user SuperiorArachnid has pointed out an open nod to Hank Pym that he saw no one else mentioning so far.

This newfound Easter egg is an award recognizing technological achievements of OsCorp CEO Norman Osborn in medical science field. He won an accolade from Pym Foundation that is signed by Henry "Hank" Pym, original Ant-Man.

Norman has probably come up with these medical innovations to save his only son Harry Osborn from a terminal illness throughout entire plot. Hank Pym is known for discovering Pym Particle and probably has no idea what Osborn is up to.
