In a post on the PlayStation blog, Head of Franchise Strategy & Studio Relations, Insomniac Games, Ryan Schneider added: “We are 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 enthusiastic about Nixxes’ spirit of cooperation and commitment to quality. We look after ourselves a lot when we work with Nixxes.”
Jurjen Katsman, Nixxes’ founder and senior director of development, said of the work on the project: “I’m extremely pleased with our collaboration with Insomniac on Marvel’s Spider-Man series, the shared support provided between our teams and their dedication to quality over everything is inspiring. “
Technical specifications were not revealed, but Insomniac confirmed that it will be the complete versions of both games. Marvel’s Spider-Man received several pieces of DLC including new story content.
SIE President Jim Ryan has previously confirmed that PlayStation will bring “a whole board” of games to the PC, and it recently hinted that Sony expects half of their annual releases to be on the PC and mobile by 2025.
Sony’s first modern PC ports were Horizon Zero Dawn in August 2020, Days Gone in May last year and God of War earlier this year. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will also take the plunge into the PC year.
PlayStation recently acquired Nixxes Software, best known for its work on PC versions of Square Enix properties, including Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, Hitman, and Thief, to help bring its games to the platform.
During a corporate briefing last month, Jim Ryan said expansion to the larger PC and mobile platforms, and in particular to commit to releasing at least 12 live service games in the coming years, could be “transformational for our business”.
“PlayStation Studios has historically performed fantastically in delivering a strong portfolio of narrative, graphically beautiful single-player games, but it’s certainly the case that we have limited ourselves to a fairly narrow segment 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. ”
