If you’re a long-time PlayStation fan, chances are you’ve played an entry in Insomniac’s Ratchet & Clank series. If you’re looking forward to a new one, well, that’s reportedly in the cards! A new Ratchet & Clank game are reportedly in development and is set to launch with the PS5 this holiday.
This news comes from Colin Moriarty, former IGN journalist. He shares this in the recent episode of Sacred Symbols (via ComicBook), where he discusses the Marvel’s Spider-Man sequel and notes that gamers will be getting a new Ratchet & Clank game before they’ll be able to swing around New York again.
We’re going to get a Ratchet and Clank in-between that [Spider-Man 2018 and its sequel) on PlayStation 5. I feel like that’s going to be a launch game, the Ratchet and Clank game that’s long been in development at Insomniac.
For reference, the last proper Ratchet & Clank title was released back in 2o16, which was a remake of the original one released for the PS2.
Of course, treat this with a grain of salt, as this is in no way a confirmation. That said, Moriarty definitely knows quite a number of devs, so this is worth keeping an eye out for.
