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.

RELATED: Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales to Release in Holiday 2020

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.
