Insomniac Games May Have a Third AAA PS5 Exclusive in Development 1

There’s simply no question that Insomniac Games is carrying this generation for Sony. We’re not belittling the efforts of PlayStation’s other first-party studios, but it’s worth acknowledging that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will be its third release for the PS5 thus far – fourth if you factor in the dramatically overhauled Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered as well.

And in addition to the upcoming Marvel’s Wolverine, it sounds like the Burbank-based developer has a third unannounced project currently in production. Erin Eberhardt, a former Blizzard staffer, teased the title as part of a Full Sail University seminar, which has been shared on social media. She’s currently a Project Director at the developer.

She reiterates twice that the game is unannounced and that she’s unable to talk about it, so we’re fairly confident this isn’t Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 or Marvel’s Wolverine, as otherwise she’d likely just say so. She’s also eager to stress that the game she’s working on is AAA, so this isn’t a side-project – presumably it’ll be its next big thing.

Obviously it’s almost impossible to predict exactly what this game could be, although a couple of years ago the developer was hiring for a multiplayer game, so the timing would align considering Eberhardt says she’s approaching her one year anniversary at the studio. Sony has obviously been searching for a multiplayer hit, and Insomniac Games is certainly no stranger to the genre.

Understandably, we’ll probably need to wait until Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is out before we learn any more about what’s next from the Ratchet & Clank maker – and, heck, it still needs to give us a proper taste of Marvel’s Wolverine, too. Nevertheless, it’s exciting to learn that Sony’s most industrious studio is already working on its next, next big thing.
