Ratchet & Clank Will Be Launching the PS5
According to video game journalist Colin Moriarty, Insomniac Games and Sony Interactive Entertainment will be releasing a new Ratchet & Clank title to compliment the launch of the PS5. Apparently a Ratchet & Clank title has long been in development at Insomniac Games and the launch of the PS5 is where fans will see it release. The upcoming sequel to Insomniac’s Spider-Man will release later than the next Ratchet & Clank title. The last Ratchet & Clank game released in 2016 exclusively for the PS4 and it was a current-gen remake of the original title.
“We’re going to get a Ratchet & Clank in-between [Spider-Man PS4 and its sequel] on PlayStation 5,” said Colin Moriarty. “I feel like that’s going to be a launch game, the Ratchet & Clank game that’s long been in development at Insomniac.” The series started on the PS2 in 2002 and the recent remaster of the original title likely means that their next installment in the franchise will stay true to the series’ roots while introducing new weapons, characters, etc.
If the rumor is to be believed, Insomniac will return to their flagship franchise for its very first game on next-gen hardware and its first game as an official Sony Interactive Entertainment studio. Sony themselves haven’t officially announced any of the games for the PS5 launch, or any PS5 games period but a Ratchet & Clank title complimenting the launch of next-gen sounds like a great fit for both Insomniac and Sony. It’ll be interesting to see how much time there is in between the release of the next Ratchet title and the sequel to Spider-Man.
