If you purchase the Ultimate Edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales to get Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on the PS5, you won’t be able to transfer a save from the PS4 version of the game.
Marvel’s Spider-Man developer Insomniac Games revealed the news on Twitter, as well as providing more details about how the remastered version of the 2018 game will work in a series of replies to fan queries.
If you plan to continue from where you left off on the PS4, you’re out of luck, as it looks like the two games will be separate entities, meaning your current-gen save won’t be compatible. However, this does mean that Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered will offer a separate trophy list, which is great news if you’re a Platinum hunter keen to replay the game on PS5.
Saves won’t transfer from the original game to the Remaster

Insomniac also confirmed that Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered won’t receive a physical release, and will only be available as a download voucher or a digital download, depending on which version of the Ultimate Edition of Spider-Man: Miles Morales you purchase.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is a PS5 launch game, swinging into action on November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea and November 19 everywhere else. The game is also coming to PS4 with a ‘next-gen upgrade path’ for players who make the jump to next-gen later down the line.
