A new rumor is circulating which suggests that a new Ratchet and Clank game is in the works. This new game will supposedly be launched on the PlayStation 5.
This rumor came from a journalist named Colin Moriarty from IGN. According to Colin, this new Ratchet and Clank game should release as a PlayStation 5 exclusive. He gave this news on a podcast and stated that Insomniac is developing two games at the moment. These two games are the Spider-Man(2018) sequel and the new Ratchet and Clank game.
Here is what he had to say:
We’re going to get a Ratchet and Clank game for PlayStation 5 between [Spider-Man 2018 and its sequel],” said Moriarty. “I think it will be a launch title that has been under development at Insomniac for a long time.
Apparently this new Ratchet and Clank title will serve as a precursor to the Spider-Man sequel. If what he says holds any weight, this game could release at the end of this year.
The Ratchet and Clank franchise saw a revival with the Ratchet and Clank remake. The Ratchet and Clank Collection for the PlayStation 3 also contributed in keeping the franchise relevant. But, it has been a while since we saw a new entry in the franchise.
We don’t know what the premise of the game will be or what engine it will utilize. There are no further details that expand upon this rumor. This wouldn’t be the first time that Insomniac considered a new Ratchet and Clank game.
Rumors also suggested that Sony will reveal the PlayStation 5 in February. The next-gen console is set to release somewhere at the end of this year.
