Sony today revealed that Ratchet & Clank will return and the duo will head to PlayStation 5. It’s called Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.
Ratchet & Clank is a series of action-based 3D platforms. The games specialize in mixing traditional platform puzzles with shooting aspects, and throwing goofy weapons makes it even more fun. The franchise has helped developer Insomniac Games build its reputation as a leading developer in the gaming industry.
The first Ratchet & Clank was released on PlayStation 2 in 2002. It has had more than a dozen sequels. The last one, also called Ratchet & Clank, was both a remake of the original and a link to the Ratchet & Clank movie. It was released in 2016 for PlayStation 4.
The franchise has slowed in recent years. The PlayStation 2 had four entries in the series. PlayStation 3 had six Ratchet & Clank games. This aforementioned remake was the only title in the franchise released on PlayStation 4.
But Insomniac was still busy on PlayStation 4, especially and more recently with Marvel’s Spider-Man, which came out in 2018 and became a huge success, selling over 13.2 million copies.
This new game shows Ratchet and Clank traveling across dimensions via portals. They can also ride a dragon! Cared for! The end of the trailer also came as a big surprise, showing Ratchet being replaced by a female double.
