When working on previous game, creative director Bryan Intihar of Marvel's Spider-Man had an idea of making Miles Morales a part of Peter Parker's world and therefore, they revealed him to players in E3 2017 demo during PlayStation Briefing.

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.
