Spider-Man: Miles Morales’ PS4 Saves Will Be Transferable to PS5
Although your saves in Marvel’s Spider-Man won’t be transferable from PS4 to PS5, Insomniac Games has confirmed that cross-save will be enabled for Spider-Man: Miles Morales — meaning you’ll be able to bring your saves from the PS4 version to PS5. This news comes by way of a tweet from the developer in response to a fan. Insomniac said that “you will be able to transfer your save to PS5. We’ll share details closer to launch.” It’s unclear when we’ll get more information about it (and why this same method won’t work with the original game), but at least you won’t have to start from scratch in Miles Morales if you plan on upgrading from PS4 to PS5.
