The disclaimer pertains to a range of games, not specifically Spider-Man.
A disclaimer appearing on a tile for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales seems to have sparked some speculations that the web-swinging legend could be heading to PC or other platforms in the future. However, this disclaimer appears to just be referencing a range of PlayStation exclusives that are available and some of which have been ported to other platforms.
A Twitter user that you can see below, noticed the disclaimer on the PS5 dashboard where Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was featured as a Discover tile. Miles Morales is incredibly prominent across it, featuring the key art and logo. There’s also an “Explore Now” button that would seemingly take to you a collection of PlayStation console exclusives — I don’t have a console to test.
The disclaimer itself follows the asterisk at the end of the “PlayStation Console Exclusives” headline, meaning that it’s more than likely pertaining to the collection of games available after clicking through. So, some games featured in that collection may not be available on other consoles for a limited time, and there are also other titles that are available on PC. The wording of the disclaimer does seem to be a bit confusing.

Fans have been vocal about wanting the game to head to PC for years now, and even more so with the launch of the PS5. While this disclaimer isn’t exactly doing the rounds online, I felt it was somewhat worth pointing this out before speculations grow more.
Insomniac Games and Sony don’t appear to have any plans to bring Marvel’s Spider-Man and Miles Morales to PC or other platforms, at least that we know of. And the store pages for both don’t indicate that there are any other platforms planned. That doesn’t mean to say that Spider-Man heading to PC will never happen, we’ve seen Horizon Zero Dawn shift over to PC earlier this year, and Death Stranding was a timed-exclusive on PS4 before being ported over to PC a year after its initial launch.
In a Eurogamer post, Sony said, “We will explore expanding our first-party titles to the PC platform, in order to promote further growth in our profitability,” however, PlayStation boss Hermen Hulst also clarified, “releasing one first-party AAA title to PC doesn’t necessarily mean that every game now will come to PC,”.
So sadly, at the moment it appears as if Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will remain a PS5 exclusive. We’ll have a review on the game heading your way soon, as well as a console review. Stay tuned!
