Yes, 'Spider-Man: Miles Morales' for PS5 is a standalone game

This next-gen game is not a remaster or expansion.

Yesterday’s PlayStation 5 showcase packed a strong lineup of AAA and independently developed games destined for the console, but the Spider-Man: Miles Morales reveal got some of the strongest reactions. Later, some comments from a Sony exec published as a followup in The Telegraph (paywalled) suggested that this game would be expansion to the PS4 title released in 2018, forcing developer Insomniac to respond publicly.

The brief teaser didn’t explain a lot about what the game is, but as community director James Stevenson tweeted in response to someone asking about a “remaster,” “Remaster what? It’s a new standalone game.” Now that all that is settled, we can all just watch the teaser trailer again.
