Did Sony just tease ‘Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus’ for PS3/PS4?

Remember that teaser image that was released yesterday? The one we thought was Ultraviolet? Yeah, we’ll we were wrong… it happens, shocker.

Sony released the rest of the graphic today which seems to be pointing toward a new “Ratchet and Clank” game for PlayStation 4. Why is that? Well the graphic was linked to the Insomniac Games twitter account which are the developers for that franchise and now states at the bottom “Heroes Return” which if this is a new Ratchet and Clank game, could be very exciting.

That being said, it could be a completely new IP or maybe a new Spyro game? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Insomniac Games tweeted that they will be announcing something big tomorrow (July 11th). (PS4, Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus)

Update As first reported on AWPA, the game is indeed Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus.

Well there goes the GOD OF WAR prediction.

Looks very likely to be a new Ratchet and Clank which is awesome!

However the gate things looks familiar (Jak & Daxter)... interesting to say the least.

@AWPA go for it

Its Jak & Dexter gate, its not from Ratchet & Clank, you should fix that.
nrvalleytime  +   504d ago
Just as an FYI - NeoGaf made a good point about this one. Wouldn't read into it too much - this was the name of a canceled R&C game from a few years ago. It's probably a code name for a project involving them.

But... it does like it's available on PS3. So could we be seeing a multi-gen release?

Here's the source: http://ratchet.wikia.com/wi...

I truly, truly hope it's for PS4 too.

I'll also be so happy with a REAL Ratchet and Clank on PS4 just the way Tools of Destruction was! Bring it on this sounds good!

Looks like it's something called 'Into The Nexus' for PS3, made by Insomniac's b-team to try and wrangle some quick and easy money out of their PlayStation fans while the main team works on Sunset Overdrive for Xbox One.

Thanks Insomniac, but no thanks. After the last few terrible Ratchet & Clank games, I won't be wasting any more money on the junk these guys put out. A Crack in Time was a great game, but since then it's just one rushed crapfest after another, and I'm not handing over money just to keep them afloat while they make an Xbox One exclusive. Either put out a proper, good R&C game or say bye-bye to any money you'd get from me.
Prophet-Gamer  +   504d ago
I honestly wish Sony would just give the IP to one of their internal devs. They've got tons of talent so why not. Insomniac should sink or float on their own merits rather than relying on the R&C money.
DeltaCanuckian  +   504d ago
I'm going to be pretty upset if it's the B-Team again. Insomniac has been getting really stale this generation, I felt that Resistance 3 and A Crack in Time showed that they might be back, but they threw it all away with Fuse and handing R&C off to this half-assed second team.

I really do hope Sony finds a new developer for the franchise, a group of people that are fans of the game and really want to make a new game the same way Sanzaru took over the Sly Cooper series.

I couldn't care less about an Insomniac game by now but if it's the b-team I might ...even care less.
itBourne  +   504d ago
Glad I am not only in thinking Insomniac makes bad games. Everything they make now has no soul. Was pumped for this announcement, until I seen who the developer was..

It's probably best there isn't another GOW for a goo while.
They'd like have to make either an impossible sequel to GOW3 or a sequel to the prequel lol.
Don't get me wrong I'd love to see one in future just not this soon!

Can't wait for new announcements and these new IPs in the making!

Looks like I was right that it's a new Ratchet game but why does it have to be for PS3? Imagine what Insomniac could accomplish with the PS4. The ACIT team is said to be on board now so it should turn out to be pretty good.
asmith2306  +   504d ago
Not trying to be smart here but do R&C games sell much? I wouldn't have thought they would sell more than 500,000 copies.
SpecialK  +   504d ago
A crack in time sold 1.7 million copies worldwide. All 4 one sold 1.1 million.

Hopefully they will take it right back to its roots. Like the second and first games.

The game seriously needs an injection of new meaningful characters and enemies.
showtimefolks  +   504d ago
i am a huge ratchet and clank fan, if they do this right than i will buy it day one. Don't give us any crap like all 4 one which was decent and this last ratchet game was just bad

i had a great time with tools of destruction than quest for booty was just as much fun, crack in time for me personally was a very good game but tools of destruction was more fun for me

hopefully we will hear something soon, when is gamescom BTW?
GT67  +   504d ago
looking at the photo (close-up)enlarging it/ it is the "space portal machine" from TOD. remember guys, when Ratchet needed to travel from one asteroid to another it "DIGITIZED" him then transported him. this might be the same way "in to the NEXUS"
therefore INTO THE NEXUS is proper title
into the next Universe maybe??
#1.15 (Edited 504d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
GT67  +   504d ago
after more research "into the NEXUS" is a combination of TOD an ACIT. hope the villains not DR.NEFERIOUS,Gen.Asmith CHAIRMAN DREK,CAPTAIN QWARK again nor the ZONIES helping clank
even though they were great.

PS3Freak  +   504d ago
I'm the biggest R&C fan ever, and even I admit that everything since ACIT has been awful compared to the quality Insomniac used to put out.

If this turns out to be a proper R&C game for PS4 I will be very excited.
showtimefolks  +   504d ago
here is a thought Dj7FairyTail

just like i don't buy COD or AC games you stay away from Ratchet and clank. if you knew anything the last proper game was in 2009 if i am not wrong called a crack in time

i don't know what went wrong but since crack in time and resistance 3, insomniac game quality has gone down the drain
Dj7FairyTail  +   504d ago
@showtimefolks
please tell me where i said that
MidnytRain  +   504d ago
YES. A Crack in Time needs a true successor. I imagine it'd be an absolute gem if made correctly on the PS4. It'd sure make me buy one.

Their games haven't quite sold the way they used to. Sad they used to be a top tier development house. I guess they just stretched too thin with all of those studios. Maybe it's time to consolidate?

Good. I'm glad it wasn't a shooter.
RememberThe357  +   504d ago
I'm guessing you mean "FPS" cuz Ratchet is all about his heat.

Ratchet and Clank is a platformer. Never consider it to be a shooter but yeah I was talking about FPS. We got plenty of them.

Mr_Nuts  +   504d ago
If it is Ratchet please don't crossover with Jak and Daxter

I'd rather see Jak come back in Jak 4 then another cross over game
WeAreLegion  +   504d ago
Agreed. The Jak series can be just as fun and comical as Ratchet & Clank, but it can also be MUCH darker. A Crack in Time started getting a bit more "real" in the emotional sense, but Ratchet & Clank is such a light series. So, here is my proposal:

Release Jak 4. We want Jak 4.

Then, release a Ratchet & Clank game that plays out sort of like Kingdom Hearts. It involves Ratchet & Clank travelling through other PlayStation game worlds and helping those characters. I would absolutely LOVE something like that!
Game4life  +   504d ago

LordMe  +   504d ago
Ok, how could it be a new I.P if it reads "Heroes Return"

Rachet, or Jak is possible. Or an expansion to ASBR. The said no DLC or sequel yet, but what if they do an "Super ASBR" version of the game on the PS4?
Williamson  +   504d ago
Insomniac can redeem themselves to me if they can deliver with this game. Ratchet on ps4 would be fu**** fantastic, but them doing a Jak game/ crossover with ratchet would also rock and if they somehow got the rights for spyro back then...consider my mind blown.

THANK YOU JESUS. Say what you guys want about insomniacs mistakes over the last year or so, but ratchet and clank is such a wonderful series for the playstation brand to have. if in fact thats actually what was being teased, id be super excited about picking up yet another ratchet and clank game for my new ps4. definitely a magical series in its early years. i only hope that its more of the conventional format R&C games, and not a strange 4 player coop game, or a mission based game with hardly any story like deadlocked.

ratchet and clank is a hilarious. it totally deserves a PROPER ps4 outing.
dcj0524  +   504d ago

Insomniac killed the series all on their own with Resistance 2. It's too bad people weren't willing to give it another chance after that garbage game because I think R3 is one of the best games Insomniac has released in the 9 years.
