Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart releases in roughly two months and… Well, fans are beginning to worry. It’s been a long time since we last got a look at the mascot platformer, and some are beginning to speculate that a delay may be on the cards. Not true, according to Insomniac Games – all is well behind-the-scenes, and there are “plans in place” for an update soon.
The developer, as it tends to do, was responding to some concerns in its Twitter mentions: “We know you're antsy for more news and there are plans in place right now for that. You'll be pleased with what we have to share, just hang tight.”
While it hasn’t historically been PlayStation’s strategy to wait so long, it has generally switched to much shorter hype cycles for its first-party releases of late; Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls, and even Destruction AllStars all had minuscule marketing schedules compared to past franchises. Whether it’s a change in strategy or a consequence of coronavirus is unclear.
Either way, looks like we’ll be learning a lot more about Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart soon. Alright, it’s not exactly Earth-shattering news – but it should help to quell some concerns!
