Spider-Man and Miles Morales are swinging to PC this year

Good news for all you web-lovin’ Spidey-fans who don’t own a PlayStation but do own a PC. Spider-Man and its stand-alone spin-off Miles Morales are coming to the master race. As announced on the PlayStation Blog, both Spider-Men will start swinging for it this fall.

The PC port is being handled by Nixxes, a Dutch video design company that has earned its spurs in the past couple of years. The Dutchies have been toiling at The Tomb Raider Trilogy, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and Marvel’s Avengers in the past. This pretty much proves they ain’t no flapjacks, or “pannenkoeken”, as they would say it. Even Insomniac Games’ Ryan Schneider feels optimistic about it.

“We’re grateful to our PlayStation Studios partner studio Nixxes Software for fully optimizing Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales for PC.

“Our production team has been thrilled with Nixxes’ collaborative spirit and commitment to quality. We see a lot of ourselves when working with Nixxes.”

And so it seems like Andrew Ryan is keeping his word. PlayStation’s top dog has been talking about bringing more PlayStation IP to PC. With Spider-Man joining God of War, Days Gone, and Horizon: Zero Dawn, the PC community is starting to acquire quite a collection. What was it again that you said, Andrew?

“PlayStation Studios historically has executed wonderfully in the delivery of a strong portfolio of narrative rich, graphically beautiful single-player games, but it’s certainly the case that we have restricted ourselves to a rather narrow portion of the gaming market,” he said.

“By expanding to PC and mobile, and it must be said… also to live services, we have the opportunity to move from a situation of being present in a very narrow segment of the overall gaming software market, to being present pretty much everywhere.”

Great stuff, Andy
