Sick of working on Ratchet & Clank games? Insomniac says no way

"Several years ago before we started working on the Ratchet & Clank series, we were developing an RPG/adventure game that had the working title, 'Girl with a Stick,'" says Brian Allgeier, creative director at Insomniac Games. "We worked really hard on it, but in the end the team was not very inspired and, as a result, it got canceled."

It's this mindset that gave birth to the Ratchet & Clank franchise. "When we started working on the first Ratchet & Clank game," he continues, "there was a lot of great energy and the characters and title came together in a matter of a few weeks."

"Will time travel ever be possible? Will donkeys ever fly? Seriously, the Ratchet & Clank franchise is close to everyone's hearts at Insomniac and so far we've found new and interesting challenges in making each game. As long as we can approach each game from a fresh perspective, we'll likely continue making games for the series."

Ratchet and Clank is the 1st NEXT-GEN(hate that word) AAA(don`t like using that,either) platformer.

Ratchet and SLY COOPER ran last gen platforming genre.

Ratchet will be around for a while.

and i hope SLY COOPER makes a comeback(after INFAMOUS)

i agree with ratchet but i never liked cooper it was to childish for my taste. but i think that jack and daxter was better then both of them imo.

Anego Montoya FTMFW4483d ago

Jak and Daxter was amazing too.

i loved SLY COOPER though, that game is VERY CREATIVE with how the game plays out. the 1st is the best IMO.

i can`t wait to see MORE on INFAMOUS, which is a more MATURE TITLE(more your tastes) from a very very creative dev studio.
IGN has INFAMOUSs release date as JANUARY 08(pray).

i`m really excited to see some NEW platformers also, on ps3.
maybe, something FROM the people that made PSYCHONAUTS.

also, RC:FTOD is a 1st year title.
the future is going to be good to us.

This kind of question they never ask to developers of Nintendo or Xbox games. I have a question for them:"Miyamoto are you tired of making 565-th Mario game?"

Ratchet & Clank is one of my three favorite franchises, right up there with mario and Metroid.

I don't have a PS3 yet, but this is the game that will finally find me buying one.
