Spider-Man Miles Morales

Spider-Man Miles Morales was one of the most anticipated games in the PS5 launch catalog. Although it is also available on PS4. But the continuation of the wall-crawler universe created by Marvel has an absence that you have surely noticed, and that has been a matter of debate in some forums of the game.

The chrysler building It’s one of New York’s most iconic skyscrapers, but it’s nowhere to be found in Spider-Man Miles Morales’ Big Apple. It is a curious fact, since if it appeared in Marvel’s Spider-Man in 2018. A fact for which his absence has attracted more attention. In addition to being one of the points that is usually looked for, since it is a fairly recognizable place, both for those who have visited the city and for those who have only seen it on television.

If he dared to add it, Insomniac could have been sued for inflicting copyright.This has an explanation, as reported from the Game Informer portal. The Chrysler Building, built in May 1930, changed ownership in January 2019, becoming part of the Austrian company SIGNA Group and the New York real estate RFR Holding LLC. Since 1990, architectural works like this skyscraper in question can be protected with copyright, like other art forms. For some reason that has not transpired, the building owners have not given approval to Insomniac Games to appear in Spider-Man Miles Morales, and that’s why we don’t see it in the adventure, although we do in Spider-Man Remastered, because the original game was published with other owners.

From Insomniac Games, through James Stevenson, Community Director, they indicated that they obviously wanted to include it to increase the feeling of immersion, but “Sometimes negotiations to use some locations do not work, was what happened in the case of the Chrysler building in Spider-Man Miles Morales “.

With or without the Chrysler, we recommend you take a look at our analysis of Spider-Man Miles Morales to see what we thought.
