Insomniac Games has revealed that players should not expect their Marvel’s Spider-Man saves transfer from PS4 to PS5 when Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered launches later this year.
Insomniac Games confirmed on Twitter that there are no plans to make existing saves compatible with the Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered for PlayStation 5.
“Saves won’t transfer from the original game to the Remaster,” said Insomniac Games, replying to a fan wondering if he could pick up where he left his PS4 playthrough on the newest console’s version.
This is actually the norm with a remaster, as it is a brand new game and not the same title playable across another platform, differently from what currently happens with cloud saves on platforms such as Xbox Live.
With Marvel’s Spider-Man being a relatively close game, though, we understand where that question comes from, and Insomniac Games was kind enough to make it clear well ahead of the release.
What was not so clear is the release plan for the Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered. The game was announced through a simple PlayStation Blog minutes after PlayStation 5 showcase event; the same way it was disclosed that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales would be coming to PS4.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered was also revealed as a bonus for Ultimate Launch Edition purchases of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
Insomniac Games also confirmed on Twitter that it has no plans to release Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered as a standalone physical product.
