Prior to the release of Marvel’s Spider-Man, the PlayStation 4 remake of Ratchet & Clank was Insomniac Games’ most successful game. Since purchasing the Burbank-based developer, Sony’s been very clear in iterating that the Lombax has a big future ahead of him, and now rumours are swirling that the platform holder’s lining up a PlayStation 5 iteration for the next-gen console’s launch this holiday.
Sacred Symbols host Colin Moriarty has been hinting at the existence of a new Ratchet & Clank for a little while now, but since it’s never been officially announced, he believes that it’s been converted to the PS5. Speaking on his podcast, he said: “I feel like that's going to be a launch game, the Ratchet & Clank game that's long been in development at Insomniac.”
It makes sense, of course. Ratchet & Clank is not only a popular series, but it’s also the perfect property to showcase the power of Sony’s new hardware. Furthermore, the franchise is highly marketable, with identifiable characters that could very well comprise a big part of the PS5’s marketing campaign. Assuming this rumour is true, then we’re very excited indeed, because you can be sure Insomniac’s going to really push the boat out here.
