After playing spider Man
I would like them to make a game for
Thor or Spawn!

LG_Fox_Brazil5d ago

Oh my God, imagine a Spawn game made with the same care to details that Spider Man got

Brazz5d ago

Spawn is just too dark, same goes for Thor...

"Insomniac Would Love to Make Sunset Overdrive 2"

micdagoat194d ago

darthv724d ago

I'd rather them make a hulk game but if they find time for a SSOD2 then sure that would be nice too.

You will after you finally join the PS family.

Oliver_Twist5d ago

They're not joining no family. They love their independence.

AspiringProGenji5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

Like Ninja Theory loved theirs?

Oliver_Twist5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

Ninja Theory were struggling financially? Insomniac is not.

UCForce4d ago

I remember Ninja Theory said that they want to be independent before MS bought them.

Garrett_the_GOD4d ago

Ninja Theory werent struggling...Hellblade was a success and ended up doing much better than originally expected

Insomniac wants to stay independent. They aren't going to be bought by anyone.

What was the point of Insomniac making a big stink about finally owning a AAA IP of their own if they’re not going to do anything else with it

Cohagen4205d ago

It was stupid considering how poor it sold. If an IP doesn't sell then you're not owning anything valuable, they were better off releasing it on PS4 and relinquishing the IP ownership.

Jmanzare5d ago

It sold better than they expected

obidanshinobi4d ago

The game sold over a million boxed copies in the end + digital sales + it was free on GoG so many Xbox owners have played it and many would probably like a sequel, me included.

porkChop5d ago

That wasn't the plan. The first game didn't sell, and so no one wants to fund or publish a sequel. They had previously said they tried to make a sequel happen but it didn't work out.

-Foxtrot4d ago

They contradicted themselves really

If the title was owned by Sony it would be their IP to own

However despite owning it they aren’t doing anything with it

Least being owned by Sony a title could see support and sequels along with where their main fan base is

rainslacker4d ago

They still need to get funding to make something with it. If the games they made had been more successful, then they could probably have done that. But given how their games went commercially it'd be hard to find a publisher willing to take them on. I think even MS may have decided not to let Insomniac make another game with their funding after SSoD didn't do as well as it should. If it struck fire like Insomniacs other games, then I'm sure they'd already be making another SSoD.

Is Insomniac ever going to make a sequel to that Ratchet & Clank remake

Movefasta19935d ago (Edited 5d ago )

I'd rather have a new ratchet and clank game over another remake... continue Ratchet's story.If you want to play going commando buy the hd collection, it's good and 60fps

MrSec845d ago

It's probably already in development, given how well the 2016 game sold and how well it rated with both the critics and fans there's no chance Insomniac aren't doing more with the series.

They handled Sunset Overdrive, R&C and Spidey after S.O. released, but kept juggling those three games together at one point, but were in full development on two full sized, AAA games simultaneously.
They were also making a bunch of VR and smaller standard games.

Now they've finished Spiderman and don't have anything else announced in the AAA space they're probably busy with the initial planning for the next Spiderman game and well into Ratchet and Clank 2.

I wouldn't be surprised if R&C 2 is either a 2019 PS4 game or a launch, Cross Gen PS5 and PS4 game Holiday 2019.
Most likely the latter.

deadfrag4d ago

Holiday 2020 maybe,2019 no way!

badz1494d ago

but the development of R&C is in Sony's hand, not Insomniac. they will only make another if Sony ask for it.

darthv724d ago

considering that game was remade to tie in with the movie, if another movie is to be made then sure... they will do the same thing with the next game.

Oliver_Twist5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

'timing and bandwidth challenge'

y'all found the time and bandwidth to make the first one. Bring on the second one! I get the impression they want a little nudge from a platform holder to make a sequel. Maybe a launch title for a next gen console.

CarlDechance5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

I think they are focused mainly on Spider-man 2. That is their bread and butter right now. Sunset Overdrive 2 would be a nice side project, but yeah, someone would need to fund it. Insomniac is obviously too busy to self-publish.

majiebeast4d ago

They want to make games that actually sell.

ThinkThink4d ago

They want to make games that they are proud of. They did. It Sunset sold over a million copies before ending up on Game pass. I hope they make a second one too.
