Sony will bring ‘Spider-Man Remastered’ and ‘Spider-Man: Miles Morales’ to the PC because the exclusives are not so much anymore


For years Sony maintained an iron strategy in video games: what matters are the consoles, and to sell them what matters are the exclusive games. From a time to this part that message has changed, and the Japanese firm has offered some mythical titles such as ‘God of War’ or ‘Horizon Zero Dawn’ on the PC.

Now that offer will be significantly expanded. Sony has announced that ‘Spider-Man Remastered’ will arrive on August 12 on PC, while ‘Spider-Man: Miles Morales’ will do so in the fall.

Change of mentality

This makes it clear that the air is changing from that closed mindset of Sony, now much more willing to recognize that people want to play their games, but not so much as to buy a console for it.

It is curious that Sony makes this decision, especially considering that in June 2017, after the release of the original ‘Spider-Man’, those responsible for Insomniac said that this game “will never appear on the Xbox or PC”.

Times changed and Sony realized that restricting its market to its consoles was a mistake. The success of the Xbox and its strategy focused on Game Pass has made them come to their senses, and little by little they have been offering some of their exclusive titles of recent years on PC.

Those intentions to expand its catalog of games for the PC are evident: a few days ago the company said that in 2025 half of Sony’s video games will not only be on the PS5 / PS4 but also on PC and mobile.

The release of these two famous titles – 33 million copies have been sold between the two until May 2022 – with the wall climber as the protagonist is a demonstration of that ambition.

“Spider-Man Remastered” will be an improved PC version that will include customizable rendering settings and ray-traced reflections, as well as being playable with a keyboard and mouse. The game will also feature the DLC “Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps” with three additional chapters, new missions, and challenges for the game.

Not much is known about “Spider-Man: Miles Morales” and what news that title will bring to the PC if any, but Sony will give more details as its publication date approaches next fall. The good news from Sony is great for those who could not play these titles until now.
