A new Ratchet & Clank game could be out in late 2009 according to press who have reviewed the upcoming Network title Ratchet & Clank: Quest For Booty.
Why not. They are releasing a game a yr on the PS3 and they already have their engine set up. They have 2 studios now and enough employees to do that so i would say its very likely.
Yeah exactly, it's not surprising to assume that there will be a R&C in 2009. Resistance 1: 2006 Ratchet & Clank: Future: 2007 Restance 2: 2008 Ratchet & Clank 2: 2009 ...
God i love ratchet and clank, one of the few games that i like to beat, delete the save, and collect everything again. Absolutely gorgeous in high def perhaps they could bring multiplayer back for it next time around wonder what weapons they could come up with next?....
I wish we could get some jak from naughty dog
@Liquid Dust please, please, nooooooo! that's what ruined the series for lots of people 1 and 2 were wonderful, but after that the focus was more on guns...
cliffbo, ill agree that deadlocked was pretty mediocre, but i did like the multiplayer that was on up your arsenal Of course i play Ratchet and clank for the story, platforming, visuals, and weapons naturally
I didn't like the multiplayer much in either. Deadlocked was by far the weakest in the series. I think adding multiplayer was more about learning how to do multiplayer so that they could do a proper job of it moving forward. I would much prefer them to stick with all the effort going in to a great single-player R&C game.
Insomniac <3 Ratchet is a beast, he's like Rambo with tons of guns.
I'm A Stupid Xbot, I bought me a fixme dvd player, so I cant play the AAA R&C series, instead I'm stuck with stupid Banjo.
R&C the best platformer in the history of gaming will always be 1st day purchase for me.
;-P ;-P ;-P ;-P ONLY ON PS3;) Best Console in the World!!!;)
Hopefully this is true, cause I have to have my R&C series! I gotta. I hope R&C stays viable as long as Mega Man has and it would be fitting too cause this is how Mega Man & Metroid should both play out in third person, if you ask me. Insomniac are amazing. I hope the next R&C brings a new set of innovations to the table like they did with Going Commando and the spherical planet traversal.
Are you getting disagrees for the sole purpose of reducing your bubbles?? Add me: Vinnycafonejr
Disagrees are independent of losing bubbles. You have to use the plus and minus icons by the bubbles to change them. Clicking disagree just adds a number to the total.
Agree with you! R&C is one of my favorite series, and one that shouldn't be missed! It isn't surprising anyway, Insomniac just opened a new studio, and they were cranking out games yearly before, so I guess we can expect this till at least 3 more ratchet and clanks. Maybe 2, cuz they still have to finish the story.
Ratchet and Clank rocks. ;D
I just hope the animal morphing weapon isn't a freaking device this time. I loved the sheep ray ^-^ I beat the whole game without using any devices (except a mr.zurkon on accident during the last boss. I meant to click on my alpha cannon!)
i still need to play it. I started it but got side tracked with other games.
you are seriously missing out, the second playthough is fantastic... you'll find out why when you get there
I love the 2nd playthrough of any Ratchet game.
Am I the only one that was hoping for a new IP from Insomniac? I like R&C but I really really like the idea of a blockbuster francise every year with a R&C DLC like they are doing this year. Like I said I do like R&C it just isn't a system seller (the last one just topped 1 mil copies sold). I think Naughty dog should do the same thing next year, Bring out Uncharted 2 along with a Jak and Dexter PSN mini sode game like Quest for Booty. Insomnac is a talented developer and I think they should maybe think up a new IP other than just R&C. Resistance 3 will need 2 years development time.
I'm sure they will add another IP at some point - I wouldn't be surprised if it was in this generation of hardware. But creating and establishing a new IP takes a lot of lead time and resources so I don't expect them to be creating a new one every year. Remember that they are still a relatively small company - compared to the Sony, Ubisoft, Activision, EA types. I think it would be great if they could put out 2 AAA titles a year, and I think that's where they are heading - but in order to maintain their high standards they've got to be smart about how they grow, and I think they are doing a good job of it.
Considering we are in the 2nd year of a 10 year life cycle let's hope it is this generation.
one of my fav
both. We need more quality platformers.
But MARIO claims that title.
They are definitely working on something I can guarantee you that. We will see what their game will be for 2009, but something is sure coming. :)
Bound to fail. All this is is a cash cow. Look at them churning out these titles as fast as they can. Insomniac are HORRIBLE developers already, and all of their games already suck. Ha, wait until this one flops and the PS3 dies. If R&C was on the 360, it would be sooo much better than the inferior PS3. But, I don't need Ratchet and Clank because it sucks, as I have already mentioned. Now that I think about it, every PS3 game is overhyped and when they come out they suck really bad (MGS4, Lair, Haze, Heavenly Sword, Genji, Gran Turismo, Resistance, LBP, Killzone 2, Socom... actually I think that is all the PS3 exclusives that exist; 10 after 3 years! That;s it! Haha, how sad, and they all suck).
This is N4G, the Sony droid capital of the WORLD. There are more droids here then the Sonydefenseforce!
I didn't know anything about you until you made that comment about Insomniac. There isn't a dev out there that would agree with you. Whether you like their games is immaterial. You are just a waste of oxygen. Now I know everything there is to know about you. You are a 12 year old idiot. Here is my ignore button mashing your empty head.
how can you even read that comment after seeing who its from? all you have to do is just look at the name and you should know its an automatic waste of letters. you cant blame him though, im guessing hes just a child....
so first you XBUTTS say PS3 games take years to come out, and now your saying that we're taking out games as fast as we can, YOU PIECE OF FAT GARBAGE, you butt heads chat so much freshly sh1ted sh1t out of your ASSS!...just cus our line ups getting bigger and BIGGER you XBUTTs can't take it, so you start yapping your fat mouths all over this FLIPPIN SITE, with all your BLAH BLAH BLAH!, JUST STFU and GTFO!...YOU BLOW-BUTTS get HAD! every day by every PS3 fan on N4G, and not only on this site but also on YouTube, IGN, GameSpot, GT, 1UP, FREAKIN EVERYWHERE you BUTT HEADs get TRASHED and trampled on all OVER THE INTERNET cus you lie about a PIECE OF SH1T HARDWARE THAT HAS A 33% FAILURE rate...YEAH!!! you all got OWWWNED again!, the xbox will, I REPEAT! WILL die in 2009, and it wont be the PS3 thats going to give the finale blow, it'll be the PS2 LMAO at that pile of DOGS ASS! hardware.........and YOU TWATS can Rampage my Bubbles all you want, i'll just come back with a new user and OWN! you agian
lol^ he said "butt heads"<----XD lol! bubbles.
"All this is is a cash cow". Cash cow? CASH COW?! Then, what's Halo? Hell... On a side note, 360rxorz go and learn how to write, idiot.
For the first thing the It's not an expansion, you don't need to have Tools of Destruction to play the game, it's an episode for itself. I hope, really really hope, we get a new IP from Insomniac, i was hoping they would release a couple of episodes instead of a whole game next year, so that the R&C fans get something, and meanwhile they could focus on a new IP....
I already said that so bubbles! Imagine if they created something like Infamous, not saying they need a sandbox superhero IP, but just something that we all can agree would be really cool. Every year you would get Resistance or Infamous cool IP and Episodic R&C every year. That would be the BOMB!
Exactly, especially now that they have opened a new (small) studio in North Carolina, they could handle the R&C Episodes while the big team concentrates on the Big AAA Blu-Ray Games... Would love to see a new Platform ip from them or something in the lines of an Uncharted or as you said an Infamous... Couldn't it just be that the 2009 just indicates when the next episode og R&C is out?!?!
Mario Galaxies was crap. It was a color turd, but it was still crap. Mario 64 pwns Galaxies. Maybe when Mario goes HD you can make that claim. Till then, shut your trap you lil piece of crap. Also, I hope that the new Ratchet game will let us use our save data from future tools. I spent 1 billion sprockets on this wicked cyber armor and I would hate for it to go to waste.
I just finished Future last night and I was blown away by the quality of that title. Graphics on a 1080P 50" TV are phenomenal - truly looks like a Pixar Movie. The story was cool and the variety in levels and weapons is off the chart. I can't wait to play again on challenge mode. I wonder if the ending is different a second time through? Anyway, Quest for Booty cannot come fast enough, and a completely new Rachet title for 2009 would be icing!
After Resistance 2 is shipped, they'll get most of their team working Ratchet&Clank, while the studio in north carolina will just be opening up, so dont expect a game from them until fall 2010, and from there on out each studio will release 1 game per every two years, still allowing insomniac to get a game out, but also allowing for better quality.
Fantastic. Really really fun game, cant wait to see what they do in the new one.
If the pattern continues are we most likely to see Res3 in 2010? And if this pattern continues when will we see a new IP from them? I think they have the talent to make a new successful franchise.
Considering that they are opening a second studio, I assume we are going to start seeing new IP's from it while the original studio continues to focus on Resistance and Rachet.
Who cares what bots think? They are just mad that they are stuck with Banjoo and Kazzoie.
DAAAM! i only got 2 bubbles, am going down!, i'll be back BUTT HEADS
enjoyed the R&C series, but it wasn't until Tools of Destruction that i became a full on fan. i'll be picking up Quest for Booty this month, and i'll definitely be looking forward to another R&C next year. Insomniac have said many times that they plan on releasing a quality game a year, but still maintain a 2 year development cycle per title (it helps maintain that quality). like somebody said before; Resistance: 2006 Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction: 2007 Resistance 2: 2008 Ratchet and Clank Future 2: Double Entendre Subtitle here: 2009? Resistance 3: 2010? new IP from Insomniac's new studio, something that probably also starts with "R": 2011?
I am the only one, it seem the these guys are just much better devs than every one else because they can release a game for the PS3 every year while all other devs are b*tch*ng about how hard it is to make games for the PS3.
I'd be more surprised if they didn't release another R&C next year, tbh.
