Marvel’s Spider-Man previously wasn’t able to allow for saves transfers between its PS4 and PS5 iterations, but Insomniac Games has now announced that this will no longer hold true.
One of the biggest complaints for a few weeks now about Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered for PS5 is that those who have previously played the game on PS4 wouldn’t be able to seamlessly transfer their saves over to the next-gen iteration. Fortunately, Insomniac Games has now changed its tune when it comes to this ruling.
Insomniac took to social media this afternoon and announced that Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 will now be able to have saves transfer to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. While not available at launch, Insomniac says it plans to roll this feature out in an update that will arrive around Thanksgiving, which is near the end of November. Additionally, the three new Spider-Man suits that were going to be exclusive to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered will also now be rolling out on the PS4 version of the game as well.
We have heard you – in an upcoming update for #SpiderManPS4, we will add the ability to export your save to Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. This update will also add the three new suits from Remastered to the PS4 game. We expect to bring you this update around Thanksgiving. pic.twitter.com/EqoKnto3FV

Honestly, it’s fantastic to see that Insomniac has been so receptive to fans when it comes to this matter. The fact that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales does allow cross-saves, it never made much sense that Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered wouldn’t be able to do the same. Regardless, the fact that Insomniac essentially owned up to the “mistake” and is now looking to rectify it just shows why they’re one of the best studios in the industry right now.
While we might have to wait a few weeks for this update to roll out, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered will launch alongside the special edition of Miles Morales later this week on November 12, exclusively for PS5.
