Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be roughly half the length of Marvel's Spider-Man, according to Insomniac Games. We already knew that the upcoming PlayStation 5 launch title was set to be more of a spinoff than a full-blooded sequel, but we now have more of an idea of exactly how long the game will keep us playing.
Creative director Brian Horton once again likened the new game to 2017's Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, a standalone experience set after Uncharted 4 that was itself around half the length of the original game.
According to HowLongToBeat.com, Marvel's Spider-Man can be completed in around 16 hours, so we can likely expect Spider-Man: Miles Morales to run for at least eight. That estimation is based on if players choose to focus entirely on the story, mind you. It's likely that there'll be plenty of side missions and open-world diversions for Miles to track down that should pad out the runtime further.

"We know a lot of you want to know how big this game is," Horton wrote. "Our team at Insomniac has been working incredibly hard to bring you a fantastic Miles Morales adventure since we concluded development on Marvel's Spider-Man.
"You'll experience a full story arc with Miles, one that's more akin to a game like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy in terms of overall scope. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is an important, heartfelt, emotional and essential experience to expanding the Marvel's Spider-Man universe. And we hope it will be for you as well."
Spider-Man: Miles Morales will continue one of the most important plot threads established in Marvel's Spider-Man. At the end of the 2018 game, Miles found himself with powers of his own, and Peter promised to train him to use them responsibly. The upcoming game looks to be delivering us Miles' first big outing as a costumed hero as he deals with an all-out war between "an energy corporation and a high-tech criminal army".
That means we shouldn't expect to learn more about some of things established in Marvel's Spider-Man that were specific to Peter. Norman and Harry Osborn, for example, as well as the tease of what looked a lot like the Venom symbiote at the very end of the game, likely won't return until the full sequel.
