In an announcement that would make Captain Qwark cry, legendary writer TJ Fixman has confirmed that he’s set to depart Insomniac Games. The voice behind seven of the Ratchet & Clank titles has been lured away from game development by his screenwriter ambitions – but insists that he’ll continue to play a key role in Sony’s series as the impending movie powers through production.
“As a producer and writer on the movie, I will still be helping to shepherd Ratchet & Clank into the feature world,” he wrote in a heartfelt blog post. “I’ve also made sure that the North Carolina studio has everything that they need to finish Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus.”
We’d always hoped that Insomniac Games would be working on a full PlayStation 4 intergalactic adventure to accompany the upcoming Ratchet & Clank movie, but we suppose that that’s looking less likely now. Still, we wish the very best to Fixman and his future endeavours – he’s really done the franchise justice over the past seven years.
