At its State of Play showcase held late last night, Sony revealed that the next PlayStation exclusives to get the PC port treatment are Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered and its spinoff, Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
Originally launched in 2018, the first Spider-Man game from Insomniac is receiving a few graphical tweaks, presumably to justify the ‘Remastered’ tag that’s been added on the end.

The only other info known is that it will launch on PC on 12 August this year and will contain all the DLC from the PS game. We don’t know how much it’ll cost when it is available on Steam and Epic’s store. Judging from the other ported games, it won’t cost as much as the PlayStation version.
Not shown during the presentation but named in a subsequent blog post, Spider-Man: Miles Morales will also make its way over to PCs between September and November. Or ‘Fall’, if you only recognise Freedom Units.
In the post, Sony says it’ll reveal more technical aspects at a later stage, like minimum and recommended PC requirements. But it mentions that gameplay on mouse and keyboard will be available. Ray-tracing will also be available.
That answers some of the questions we had following Sony’s investors’ day last week. During that presentation, Sony Interactive Entertainment president Jim Ryan said there would be two unannounced games making their way to PC. These seem to be the games in question. The end goal is Sony’s projected $300 million in net sales for PC games for this financial year.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is currently the best-selling superhero game ever made, despite only being available on one platform. Its move to PC will probably help to cement that title.
