The upcoming superhero game, Marvel’s Avengers will not be linked to Sony’s upcoming game, Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
This summer has seen a lot of Spider-Man related news. Sony officially revealed that the next Spider-Man game, Spider-Man: Miles Morales would be released for the PlayStation 5 this Holliday season even as Tom Holland’s upcoming Spider-Man film faced another delay. Earlier this month it was also revealed that Spider-Man would be a post-launch DLC character for the PlayStation versions of the upcoming game, Marvel’s Avengers.
This has led some to wonder whether or not the upcoming video game would be linked to the Spider-Man series by Insomniac Games. The game notably included Doctor Strange’s layer in the game as well as Avengers Tower in New York City. Sadly, it has been confirmed that the upcoming game will not have any links to these games.
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly Head of Creative for Marvel Games, Bill Rosemann stated that Marvel’s Avengers will not be taking place in the same universe as Spider-Man: Miles Morales. He did, however, say that the Spider-Man character in the Square Enix game would have certain parallels to Miles Morales:
“It’s part of his goal to give game-makers as much freedom as possible to craft the stories they want to tell. So, while this year’s Avengers won’t be linked to Spider-Man, it has its own web-slinger. Spider-Man has been confirmed to arrive in Marvel’s Avengers as a DLC story sometime after launch. But when the game drops, it will also come with a lead character who maintains certain parallels to Miles.”
