On August 1, 1962, Spider-Man first appeared in the pages of Marvel Comics — the superhero made his debut in the 15th issue of Amazing Fantasy. While it was Peter Parker himself and not his young protege, the Miles Morales developers have celebrated the fan-created Spider-Man Day event by releasing a bunch of stats, thanking everyone for their commitment and passion.
While not the longest game out here, the Spider-Man spin-off still boasts a vast open-world with plenty of additional activities and exciting traversal mechanics. Apparently, the fans collectively spent over 11,000 years playing as young Miles during the defining chapter of his life. In that time, players defeated more than 7 billion enemies with 727 million Venom Smashes and 146 million finishers, and stopped over 190 million crimes in Manhattan only. Damn these criminals.
For the more peaceful part, Spider-Man: Miles Morales fans gathered over 224 million collectibles, including postcards and hidden time capsules, put on 9 million Bodega Cat Suits, and took more than 62 million subway rides to quickly get to their destinations.
Celebrate the fan-created Spider-Man Day event with us, true believers! You collectively spent over 11,000 years swinging through the streets in Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales! Thanks for playing.#MilesMoralesPS4 #MilesMoralesPS5 pic.twitter.com/v9kKpQtMm3— Insomniac Games (@insomniacgames) August 1, 2021
Spider-Man: Miles Morales is one of the biggest PlayStation titles of the past year, with more than 6.5 million copies sold since its original launch back in November 2020. For comparison, PS5 exclusive Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart has sold 1.1 million copies in a little more than a month, which is still a pretty impressive milestone.
If you enjoyed both Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered, there’s a good chance we’ll learn something new about the next Spider-Man game pretty soon. Just recently Miles Morales actor Nadji Jeter posted and then quickly deleted a photo of himself in mocap gear, probably from the set of Spider-Man 2. However, neither Insomniac nor Sony has confirmed a sequel for the franchise as of now.
