Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man will receive a remastered version for PlayStation 5 so that the legendary superhero will take full advantage of the next-generation console’s advanced hardware. The remastered title will even be available as a pack-in with Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition.
But you know how things go in life in general and in gaming in particular: you just can’t have them all, even if you’re willing to pay.
No transferring files from the original game
Insomniac Games itself, the developer of the game, brought the sad statement as a response to a fan:
Saves won’t transfer from the original game to the Remaster

Those fans who still have the original game won’t get the chance to transfer the old files to the upcoming and remastered version.
The official PlayStation account from YouTube released a gameplay demo of the game:
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles. The game is based on the Marvel Comics superhero Miles Morales, and it will be the second title in the Marvel’s Spider-Man series.
