One of the strongest contenders in the PlayStation 5 presentation was the revelation of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. However, the announcement was overshadowed hours later by a controversy generated by poor communication by Sony and PlayStation.
Simon Rutter, a member of the European division of Sony Interactive Entertainment, claimed that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was more of expansion with improvements and not a sequel as such of the game for PlayStation 4.
This caused confusion among fans, so soon after Insomniac Games clarified the situation. The developer stated that the new project is an independent game. For this reason, it has been compared to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
Now Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, spoke about the controversy and said that at no time did they try to deceive or confuse their followers. During an interview with CNET, Jim Ryan was questioned about the confusion and controversy over the announcement of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The manager was clear and stated that the disclosure was not misleading.
Many believe that the communication from PlayStation about this launch was somewhat confusing during the event, since it was easy to clarify what kind of experience Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will have.
Ryan ruled out any malicious intent in the announcement, as he never wanted to create confusion among viewers and fans of the Spider-Man. The manager said that they would not do something like this, much less in the case of the revelation of their plans for the next generation.
“I can safely say that we would not effectively lead the next-gen portion of the show with something that was either trivial or misleading,” Ryan said. For now, all that remains is to wait for more information from Insomniac Games.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will release at the end of this year with PlayStation 5.
