Spider-Man: Miles Morales IS a standalone game. But we have questions...Platforms: Sony PlayStation 5
Update on 14th June
So, despite Sony previously stating that Spider-Man: Miles Morales would be an expansion and update of the original Spider-Man game on the PlayStation 5, Insominac have now clarified that this will be a standalone game - and that it will be the next chapter in the Spider-Man story.
Their choice of wording has us asking a few questions though - they haven't mentioned the word sequel in their corrections and we also know that the original Spider-Man game has been used as an example of how much faster the PS5 will be. Is it possible that this standalone game is both as Sony stated, an expansion of the first game with enough content to be considered a full while being delivered in one whole package for PlayStation 5 owners?

The teaser above last night led us, and everyone else, to believe that the PlayStation 5 was going to play host to a Spider-Man sequel and that this was it. While there's no doubt one will arrive eventually, Sony have now clarified that this trailer was for an expanded version of the current Marvel's Spider-Man game.
In an interview with The Telegraph Sony Interactive Entertainment’s EVP head of European Business, Simon Rutter told the newspaper that Miles Morales would include “major enhancements” to the 2018 PlayStation 4 game. “I guess you could call it an expansion and an enhancement to the previous game,” he went on to add.
This news will be disappointing to fans who have already completed the brilliant original, but at the same time we're excited to see that game running on the much more advanced new console. We expect this edition of the game to be a whole new purchase rather than a free upgrade for existing owners.
