After a long-standing collaborative relationship, yesterday during the Gamescom opening show there was the announcement of Sony ‘s acquisition of Insomniac, with the studio becoming the fourteenth owned by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
At Insomniac Games we owe many successful titles, from the original Spyro trilogy to Resistance for example, without forgetting the most recent Marvel’s Spider-Man , which turned out to be a very successful exclusive, and the Ratchet & Clank series , rebooted again on PS4 at the dawn of the console, but then never officially resumed.
Yet it is precisely on this series that the first rumors are concentrated after the acquisition: it is in fact a brand of absolute success, which for a period represented almost a mascot for the PlayStation brand, and which even at the time of the reboot was welcomed very positively by public and critics. Has the time come for a grand return?
Turning on the hopes was just Shawn Layden, who confirmed that the famous duo has a secure future on PlayStation: “We like what they did for the Spider-Man franchise, and products like Ratchet & Clank are definitely vital series for the present and the future of Sony. We will focus on this. “
In short, the golden rule in cases like this is “until they announce it, it does not exist”, but certainly for fans of the saga, there is now something to start hoping for. What do you think?
