Insomniac Games、「『Marvel’s Spider
Developer Insomniac Games seems to have been in the past. Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) announced on June 3 of the PC version of Marvel'S Spider-Man Remastered and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales . It is scheduled to be sold at the Steam and Epic Games Store, and Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered will be released on August 12, 2022, and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morals will be released in the fall of 2022. It is said that NIXXES Software, a game company acquired the other day, was involved in the PC version transplant. It seems that functions such as rendering settings and late racing are installed.
A series of series works: Marvel's Spider-Man released on PS4, Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered of PS5, and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales released on PS4/PS5 are in 2022. It has achieved more than 33 million units worldwide as of the 15th month. These hit PC printing will be a nice reward for players who do not have a PlayStation platform.
However, in response to the news, some fans seem to have responded different from pure welcome. This is because the developer Insomniac Games is ridiculed by one point. It dates back to the studio's 2017 tweet. Insomniac Games said in a past tweet that Marvel's Spider-Man never appeared on a PC.
Insomniac Games declared in the above tweet that Marvel's Spider-Man would never be released on the Xbox platform or PC. It has been permanently asserted that it is only for PlayStation 4. Of course, this tweet is a statement five years ago. At that time, there would have been no shadow or shape, such as the story of the PC version transplant of Marvel's Spider-Man. As a result, it was certain that it was a lie, but it should not have been so spread that he knew the future development. Due to the SIE policy, it is terrible that only Insomniac Games is called a liar.
But unfortunately, the Internet is mean. In fact, the remastered version of MARVEL'S SPIDER-MAN was released by the PC version, and past remarks were automatically lied. The people on the Internet seemed to have found the past tweets of Insomniac Games, picked them up, and took the demon's neck.
- By the way, INSOMNIAC GAMES stated in 2020 that the PC version does not appear.
Since 2020, SIE has revealed that the first party title is to strengthen the IP development for PC platforms (related article). As announced, in August 2020, the PC version of HORIZON ZERO DAWN was released. In May 2021, the PC version was released, and in January 2022, the PC version of God of War was distributed.
SIE's CEO Jim Ryan looks back on the relationship between SIE and PC at a briefing for investors on May 26 this year. He reported that SIE had earned $ 80 million (about 10.4 billion yen) in a PC game in the 2021 fiscal year. The PC version of the 2020 fiscal year was $ 35 million (approximately 4.5 billion yen), indicating that the company has grown significantly in PC version sales. And in the 2022 fiscal year, SIE said that it was expected to have a PC version of $ 300 million (about 39.2 billion yen).
According to these SIE management policies, the PC version of the Marvel's Spider-Man series is a natural flow. Five years ago, it was unexpected for Insomniac Games, but the PLAYSTATION platform monopoly policy is hiding in the shadow. That change was one of the cases that made past remarks lies. The PC version of Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered will be released on August 12, 2022 and the PC version of Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be released in the fall of 2022.
