Insomniac Games has swiftly responded to a recent oversight in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, where the Cuban flag was mistakenly placed in Miles Morales’ apartment instead of the Puerto Rican flag.
This error caught the attention of the gaming community shortly after the game’s release, exclusively on PlayStation 5. Both Miles and his mother, Rio, are of Puerto Rican descent, making the accurate representation of their heritage crucial.
Insomniac Games wasted no time in addressing the issue, releasing Patch Version 1.001.003 to correct the flag and fix a few additional bugs that had been identified.
The patch notes detail the changes made, including the correction of the flag, fixing model loading issues after extended play sessions, adjusting the brightness of the Spider logo on The Amazing 2 Suit, and overall stability improvements.
In addition to the technical fixes, Insomniac Games issued a heartfelt apology, acknowledging the importance of accurate representation and expressing their commitment to doing better in the future. They stated, “We understand that accurate representation matters, and greatly regret this error. We sincerely apologize and will do better in the future.”
