There’s good news for people thinking about picking up the PlayStation 4 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales, rather than immediately going with the PlayStation 5 version. It turns out, you’ll be able to continue your journey regardless of platform. Insomniac Games Community Director James Stevenson confirmed on Twitter that Spider-Man Miles Morales PS4 save data carries over.

The question came up when Stevenson was talking about how the PS5 version of the game will be different and improved upon. Someone asked if the save data would be compatible. (Which is important, because people who buy the PS4 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales will be able to upgrade to the next-gen one for free.) His succinct response was, "Yup!"

This news comes after learning about one PS4 game where the save data won’t transfer over. Ryu ga Gotoku Studios confirmed that someone would have to start fresh in the Yakuza: Like a Dragon PS5 version, even if they already were playing the game on the PS4. In that situation, the files aren’t universal.

As for Stevenson’s past tweets where he did talk about how the PS5 version was improved, here’s the full rundown from September 22, 2020.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales is a PlayStation 5 launch game, which means it will appear in Australia, Japan, North America, and South Korea on November 12, 2020 and in the rest of the world on November 19, 2020. The Miles Morales PS4 version will launch on November 12, 2020.
