In case you missed it, it was recently revealed that folks that purchase Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition for $69.99 on the PlayStation 5 will also receive a digital voucher for Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered. While it is assumed that folks will be able to pick up the remaster on its own digitally, it would appear that a physical release is not currently in the cards.
That's according to developer Insomniac Games, by the way. The company's official Twitter account responded to a question as to whether Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered would release physically for the PS5 with a simple, straightforward answer of "no plans to release physically."

"The remaster for the PS5 is no simple up-res, as many of the game’s art assets have been completely updated to take advantage of the PS5 console’s horsepower," a recent PlayStation blog post from Insomniac Games Community Director James Stevenson reads in part. "You’ll see better-looking characters with improved skin, eyes, hair, and facial animation (including our new, next-generation Peter Parker). You’ll also see ray-traced reflections and ambient shadows, improved lighting, more pedestrians and vehicles stretching further into the distance, and the same optional performance mode offered on Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, allowing you to finally play the game at a targeted 60fps frame rate. We’ll be supporting near-instant loading, 3D audio, and the DualSense controller’s haptic feedback. Lastly we’re adding three amazing new Spider-Man suits, new photo mode features, and even new trophies for those of you looking to Platinum the game all over again."
Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which is a standalone title, is set to release for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on November 12th for $49.99. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition, which includes a voucher for Marvel's Spider-Man: Remastered, is set to launch on November 12th as well but for the PS5 only for $69.99.
