With the arrival of Spider-Man Miles Morales on PS4 and PS5, many emulators of Peter Parker’s pupil have noticed theabsence of the Chrysler Building. In an interview with Game Informer, the guys from Insomniac Games explain why their digital representation of New York doesn’t include this iconic skyscraper.
Urged by GI reporters to provide an explanation on the failure to transpose the Chrysler Building into the virtual dimension of Spider-Man Miles Morales, the Insomniac Community Director, James Stevenson, specified that “when we created our representation of the city, we wanted to include as many landmarks as possible to increase the sense of immersion. Sometimes, however, the negotiations to use some iconic place don’t end in the way we hoped for, and this time it happened to us. with the Chrysler Building in Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales “.
The skyline of the Big Apple explored by Miles Morales, therefore, lost the reference point of the Chrysler Building due to the lack of agreement reached by Insomniac with the copyright holders of the historic Art Deco skyscraper, namely SIGNA Group e RFR Holding LLC. Not having obtained permission to recreate the building in the exclusive PlayStation, the Californian developers therefore opted for a more conventional solution and created a “surrogate skyscraper” with a decidedly more modern architectural style.
