The Creator of Marvel's Spider-Man Responds to the Backlash Over the No Way Home Suit

Insomniac Games, the creators of Marvel’s Spider-Man, have responded to popular outrage over the new No Way Home costumes, only available on PlayStation 5.

Insomniac Games has responded to public outrage over the impending Marvel’s Spider-Man suits, which are based on Spider-Man: No Way Home, by explaining why they will only be available on the PlayStation 5 version the critically acclaimed superhero game. In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Tom Holland’s version of Spidey will face off against past movie villains, including the Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus, and Electro, in a quest to rescue the multiverse. Insomniac has announced that movie-accurate outfits for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered, based on the suits Peter will be donning in No Way Home, will be released to commemorate Marvel’s latest blockbuster.

In Marvel’s Spider-Man, players can swing through the open world of New York City as their favourite version of the ever-popular web-slinger, whether it’s Tom Holland’s current teenage hero from the MCU, Tobey Maguire’s older incarnation from the Sam Raimi-directed Spider-Man Trilogy of the 2000s, or even the animated Peter B. Parker from Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. Unlike previous additional outfits Insomniac has added to Marvel’s Spider-Man after release, the Black And Gold and Integrated Suits from Spider-Man: No Way Home will only be available for PS5’s Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered.

Players who own only the original PS4 edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man are understandably miffed at the revelation that they will not use the new No Way Home outfits and have gone to social media sites like Twitter to express their dissatisfaction. Insomniac Games has recently reacted, noting that adding these suits to the PS4 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man would be too complicated due to the vast number of upgrades and patches the developer has already applied to the PS4 version of the game. Insomniac responded to many commenters, “Each patch has been more technically demanding, especially with preserving PS4 HDD streaming speed.” As a result, Insomniac opted only to release the future Spider-Man: No Way Home costumes on the PS5 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered, “where our PS5 engine allows us to update the game without endangering player experience.”

The answer provided by Insomniac has ignited yet another debate in the comments area of its most recent Twitter thread. While some players understand why the PS4 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man is too large to update at this time, others point out that even larger games like Fortnite regularly release new patches without this technical issue, especially when it comes to new character skins like the recent Spider-Man content in Fortnite Chapter 3. Many players are still having trouble getting their hands on a PS5 a year after its initial release is fueling some of the anger, something that is becoming increasingly difficult due to rising demand for the holiday shopping season.

Regardless of whether Insomniac’s reasoning for only releasing the new Spider-Man: No Way Home suits for the PS5 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man is valid or not, players who own the original PS4 edition of the game will be unable to add the Black And Gold or Integrated costumes to Spidey’s large wardrobe of crime-fighting gear. Perhaps these outfits will be included in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 when it comes out in 2023 when more Spider-Man fans will have easy access to a PlayStation 5. The new costumes will be available to PS5 owners starting December 10.
