Other Sony Devs Should Take Ratchet & Clank While Insomniac Builds its Marvel Universe

The Ratchet & Clank series seems to have been put on hiatus while Insomniac builds a Marvel universe, but it should continue through a new developer.

How is Ratchet & Clank on a hiatus? The latest game released last year and we just got DLC for it this month

purple101304d ago

The dlc was character costumes though right? Not new story lines.?

Spiderman on the other hand had a 3 part dlc with loads of new things to do for £9.99 which I felt was very reasonable at the time

There isnt anything wrong with that dlc doesnt need to be story releated , Id rather them focus on a new game instead of story releated dlc.

FallenAngel1984304d ago

It’s still content. What new content has Jak and Daxter or Sly Cooper gotten at all?

Pretty ridiculous to say a series has gone on hiatus a literal year after its latest entry

Ratchet & Clank is amazing and I really don't want anyone else touching it. Insomniac Games clearly know what they're doing.

Although that would be cool seeing more high quality Marvel properties brought to videogames by Insomniac. Like the X-Men. With connections with each game leading into another game like Marvel movie ending credits. And, I'd love a Spider-Man VR for PS VR 2 while they're at it.

But just let Insomniac be Insomniac with them making games they want to make. Whatever makes them happy without being locked into making only super hero games. The developer is big enough to still make Ratchet as well.

Hell yea, that's all I got to say. I hope one day they re release the cold steel set, I completly missed them due to issues at the time. Now their pretty pricey.


When you switch between Miles and Peter, you'll see the other swinging around town

You'll see Peter Parker doing his thing while swinging around as Miles Morales, and vice-versa in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

I know right? so you basically can follow the other one and watch him do his thing around the city? So cool indeed!

It’s crazy how Insomniac became the peak developer. Honestly their games are so good and so polished. Things like this and even the subway ride for fast travel on PS4 were little details that added so much.

It's called vision and investment. Compare Insomniac before Sony's acquisition to after. They were a solid studio before, now they're one of the world's best making one of PlayStation's biggest system sellers.

That's what this industry needs.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Sony is keeping tight lipped on its other titles to give all the attention to Spider-Man, because there's just no way Sucker Punch, Naughty Dog's new single player IP, Media Molecule, Housemarque, and the rest are just idling. Santa Monica and Guerrilla Games are probably still a long way from revealing any new projects. And we already know Wolverine is next from Insomniac.

CobraKai1d 1h ago

Yeah. Hearing absolutely nothing from Naughty Dog, who i thought was the peak dev before insomniac took over, and Sucker Punch is highly suspect, or “sus”. GG is probably hard at work for the next Horizon game and still supporting the last one so im not surprised if they haven’t announced anything. Im hoping ND isnt just gonna reveal TLOU 3.

Tody_ZA19h ago

The news indicated that Naughty Dog was working on a new IP so I doubt it's The Last of Us Part 3. Naughty Dog usually has 4 to 6 year development cycles so they're into their new game.

Ghost of Tsushima came out 3 years ago so it's likely Sucker Punch are neck deep in their new project - I would estimate a release by 2025.

Bluepoint are also working on their next game, it's been 3 years since Demon's Souls.

Many of Sony's studios released massive games in the first half of the generation so it's going to take time to hit the next wave.

You know this same feature was invented in GTA5, right?

1) We're not talking about the feature, we're talking about how Insomniac grew from being a solid, decent developer to one of the best.

2) Not sure what point you think you're making. We all know GTA5 was ambitious and amazing for its time to pull this off, no one is saying Spider-Man 2 invented it. But GTA5 required loading and compromised graphics to achieve it. Spider-Man 2 does it with almost no loads and high fidelity visuals including ray tracing, which is obviously an upgrade. And people are excited because they thought when you're playing as one Spidey the other would not be in the game world.

You guys need to get quality of life improvements through your head. Spider-Man was perfectly possible on PS4 but it required lengthy loads to enter and exit bases, fast travel loads, compromised visuals and 30fps. On PS5 there's almost no loading, the world is seamlessly travelled through and performance and graphics are peaked. It's obviously better.

@CobraKai ND is the peak dev at PS. All of their games get 93+ Meta, and dominate GOTY awards. When was the last time Insomniac got a 90+ Meta game that won GOTY? The reason why ND takes so long to make their games just like Rockstar, is because they’re among the most quality and detailed games in the industry.

I don’t vest in metacritic. I feel like Insomniac tends to have a more varied portfolio of games. Spider-Man became my favorite game on the PS4 and Ratchet and Clank on PS5 looks rivals CGI movies. Don’t get me wrong, Uncharted 4 was a masterpiece as was the 2 TLOUs, but maybe if their next game is something completely different, they’ll be the top again.
