Devin Rardin: I now consider Insomniac Games as my favorite studio among Sony-owned developers after the 2021 PlayStation Showcase.
After seeing them working on two Marvel games... Im really hoping they get some time to make a SSOD remake for PS5 that eventually leads to the long requested sequel.
I'm sure they'll announce a remaster version of SSOD at the PSX event in December. That's what the leaks are saying. I doubt a remake though because they're to busy with SM2 and Logan.
You think there is a psx in December? Feel like they did hold back announcements but with the games they showed being far out, not sure they would do another show within 3 months, hope I'm wrong though
Yup because the source is from the same guy that's been right almost every time. Reddit user Air_Radiant was able to accurately predict the date of the recent PlayStation Showcase, as well as confirm the acquisition of Housemarque early. Now, they’re claiming that Sony has a new AAA studio in Japan to be announced later this year at the PSX event in December. He was also accurate about Horizon Forbidden West. Sony did update the trademark of PSX in June.
SSOD remake seems pointless. It was a failure of a game in the market compared to their other games. I definitely want them to have the choice to work on games they want to make and not just Marvel, but SSOD just doesn't seem the right option IMHO. They should do a Sucker Punch and come up with a new IP.
I actually want them to reboot resistance but I don't think it did well enough in sales for them to do that.
The game has done better than people think. It may not have been a sales juggernaut initially but it found a new resurgence on GP. And to get a remaster / remake with improvements and 60fps would be a great lead in to the sequel that IG had planned. MS were fools to pass on that one when it was offered to them.
***but it found a new resurgence on GP*** I feel this is something you're telling yourself and not the reality at all.
Sunset Overdrive: a run and gun with lots of rail grinding and crazy weaponry inspired by R&C
@Darthv72 Thanks for that. I know what that game is, just haven't played it yet
Wonder what unrelated marvel games they're working on. They're definitely my favorite studio so far these past few years. One of the few that haven't forgotten their roots for sure
Not just Sony's 1st party. Insomniac is one of the best studios in this industry and they don't do just great work, they also seem to bang out great games faster than pretty much any other studio in this industry and I don't remember seeing any controversy regarding their work environment.
Not into the superhero genre or deeply excited about Wolverine, but its awesome that Insomniac is continuing to expand their catalog and finding great success with the Marvel brand so far. Very happy for them.
They've done 1 full fledged marvel game. They'll do great because they know how to develop good and fun games. Wolverine seems to be heading towards a darker direction not yet seen from insomniac.
Now if anyone from the Sony Studios helm a DC game? Flash Aquaman Green Lantern Superman(a bit hard tbh) Deathstroke
It reminds me how they were the MVP during the ps3 era
It's hard to mess up Spiderman when you got all that talent at your studio. I would like to see a new IP. Anyway, I might play the Wolverine one.
Insomniac is the gaming industry mvp at this point. It's nice to see a studio that is able to produce quality big budget games with minimal/no delays. The work culture from what has been reported also seems to be great as far as employees go too.
Ok ok, I'll go in and buy SS Remastered from MM today finally. Watching the trailer for 2 this much is making want to replay it.
They are certainly in the conversation, but I don't think I could choose between Insomniac, Naughty Dog and Sony Santa Monica, and I might chuck Guerrilla into the mix as I simply adored Horizon. Simply put, nobody gets close the the quality of Sony's first party in my opinion, not even Nintendo and I say that as a huge Mario and Zelda fan.
Well said, I 100% agree🙏
I'm the same way. I think playstation has top 5 mix of studios too and they all seem to help each other and fight each other for GOTY nominations. It's nice to see them make IP that are becoming big, but not nearly as big as Mario and stuff yet as far as recognition.
What's really funny is Xbox fans a few years ago were still championing insomniac as a really good studio following sunset overdrive. Now they have made much better games since then and the same people say they are terrible and should be stopped. I love it.
Yeah sure. My advice it to stop hanging out in fanboy forums. It's obvious you only like pro-Sony/Anti-MS content. That's why anything positive about MS bothers you so much and stays in your head.
If only they'd do something other than Marvel games. I know they did R&C but honestly apart from that it's just Marvel. I don't care how talented they are, they need more varied licenses to work with
Remember they are the ones approaching Marvel with game ideas. They get to make what they want
Move over, Naughty Dog
you got it right there i found naughty dog games over hpyed since the ps2 era
They will be an amazing boon for Sony that's for sure.
A well deserved title indeed but I think its only a matter of time before Naughty Dog reclaims the title. Having so many incredibly talented studios that the title of MVP is constantly challenged is great for Sony.
i been a fan of insomniac games since the first 3 spyro's on ps1 they have all ways been my MVP over the 5 least gens
Insomniac are MVP of all gaming studios right now not just Sony. There output is unreal. Sony was just lucky enough to aquire them.
Damn right they are ...they have been for years...when it comes to single player games....they really would be at home on gamepass ..... think of all the G5s m$ would give them....lol
I'm sure Microsoft showed interest in them but I think they went with Sony because they felt at home on the Platform given their history.
They really are an amazing studio...hats off too them😎👍.... maybe one day Microsoft will tempt them away with the promise of a G5 and lot's of money 💸💰😁 😎 seeing Spiderman sport the Xbox symbol on his front...yeah maybe we could even charge for it?
Naughty Dog, Insomniac and Sucker Punch make up the Holy Trinity of PlayStation devs.
