Insomniac apologises as it patches out Spider-Man 2’s Cuban flag mistake

A new patch has rolled out for Spider-Man 2 which fixes the flag in Miles Morales’ home.

Since the game’s release, players had been pointing out out that Miles had a large flag draped on one of the walls of his house, and that it appeared to be the national flag of Cuba.

However, Miles and his family have no connection to Cuba, and are Puerto Rican instead.

The flags of Puerto Rico and Cuba have a similar design, with each featuring five stripes, a triangle on the left-hand side and a star in the middle. Their colours are different, however, with the Cuban flag having a red triangle and blue stripes, and the Puerto Rican flag having a blue triangle and red stripes.

As such, it would appear the issue was one of human error, with the wrong flag being placed on Miles’ wall by mistake.

Insomniac Games has rolled out a new patch for the game today, which changes the flag to a Puerto Rico one.

“Today’s patch corrects an error where the Cuban flag was incorrectly displayed instead of the Puerto Rican flag,” Insomniac said.

“We understand that accurate representation matters, and greatly regret this error. We sincerely apologize and will do better in the future.”

The patch also addresses an issue “where models would not load properly after long play sessions”, as well as one where “the Amazing 2 Suit’s Spider logo appeared too bright”.

Insomniac has previously said that it’s working on a New Game Plus mode and a mission replay feature which are expected to be added to the game in an update later this year.
