What Happens to Ratchet & Clank After Spider-Man?

"Unfortunately, fans of Ratchet & Clank will have noticed that the series has lain completely dormant since 2016. In previous years, comic books and mobile spin-offs filled the time between main entries, but since the release of the latest game and film adaptation? Radio silence."

The last game on PS4 is brilliant. Love it and hope they make another this gen. Amazing series.

I thought the series concluded with the last game on PS3? IG wanted to make something else and that turned out to be Sunset Overdrive. The Ratchet remake on PS4 was done to coincide with the movie release but there was no real mention (that i recall) about them starting up the franchise again.

There were rumors (rumblings) about them doing the same thing they did with the original to other games in the series but nothing concrete or in regards to new entries.

The story didn't concluded in the PS3 since it hinted that the sequel will expand more Ratchet missing race.

Of course Insomniac will make more Ratchet and Clank games, The last game sold really well. They've just been very busy and focused on the biggest game they have ever worked, on you know?

I would love to see Sunset Overdrive 2 and Resistance get rebooted.

LawlessSXE222d ago

Resistance gets an instant yes from me.

I would love more Resistance, but I think it should be a reboot and a different dev should do it. Resistance 1 & 2 were incredible games, but 3 was an absolute in the story, and MP-wise insomniac just completely threw out what made the last 2 so good in favor of just trying to copy CoD. It wasn’t remotely fun or interesting. The only possitive that 3 had over 2 was the weapon wheel. Hopefully a new dev can do it so Insomniac can keep working on future Spider Man titles.

? Is it really uncommon for a series to go a couple of years between releases?

LawlessSXE222d ago

Not at all, but Sony's silence around the series after ten years of almost annual releases between 2002 and 2013 is concerning, especially with its stablemates Jak and Daxter and Sly Cooper on ice and Insomniac now taking longer between releases than in years past.
Besides, if Spider-Man takes off like most people expect it will, then it wouldn't be out of the question for Insomniac to keep working on more games in that universe (if Marvel and Sony keep the deal in place), rather than going back to R&C.

Is insomniac really taking more time between releases?

Sunset overdrive in 2014, ratchet in 2016 and spiderman in 2018. I mean damn how much harder can they work.

And hey series die off and new ones take its place it is what it is.

MrSugarholic221d ago

I'm not sure but I think nearly the whole of Insomniac is working on the new Spider-Man game, plus it's there biggest project so far.

rainslacker221d ago

It's a bit too soon to be worried about it IMO. It's been 2 years since the last game, and if Sony doesn't have something to say, they aren't going to say anything. They have an E3 coming up, and Insomniac is one of the largest developers in the world with multiple teams and they are more than capable of working on multiple big games at one time. Right now, they marketing they're getting is focused on Spider-Man. if a R&C is coming,we'll hear about it eventually.

Ratchet is sold off to be used for testing the safety of cosmetics while Clank's main intelligence software is broken down and integrated into Alexa devices.
