Ratchet and Clank PS3 in Next Month's EGM
Insomniac to reveal their next PS3 game soon.
By Patrick Klepek, 02/06/2007

With Resistance: Fall of Man done -- but new content next month, as another territory joins the Chimera fight, wouldn't shock us -- Insomniac Games has turned their teasing attention to the next Ratchet & Clank game, which will fall, as per usual with the franchise, exclusively on PlayStation 3. But, when can we have a look at it? Sooner than you think, actually; on the EGM Live!* podcast, the crew confirmed they'd have the next-generation sequel in their pages next month.

And not just a lame teaser, either. Screens. Details. The whole deal, man. Check back for more soon, but in the meantime, Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters ships on PSP next week.


Heres some images/video from the old GDC 06 (meaning march 06) demo:

Yeah I enjoyed the series, you would think they are all out pure kid games but they can be serious and have adult undertones at times. I liked jak and daxter more actually, but R&C was quite fun as well.

Agreed. I played Jak 1 and had a blast. Never got to play the sequels but I think I'll buy em for my sister and play through them whenever I get the chance.

Sounds like a plan. Its kind of interesting looking at the evolution of the games as the sequels go on, you can really tell the developers have learned more and more about the hardware improving the graphics each go around.

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this. Ratchet and Clank was one of my favorite series on the PS2, and I'm really excited to see what a next gen version of it will be like. Especially since Insomniac already has quite a bit of experience with the PS3.

But the pictures are still a ways off, so I guess right now there isn't much reason for anticipation yet.

From another forum...dunno how true it is though..
The next mag won't only have the RC5 exclusive, they will also have a Heavenly Sword preview as well as a review of God of War 2. Store date is March 14th.

After playing Resistance and starting the Rachet series it's amazing how diverse Insomniac is.

Do they work on one at a time or have separate teams?

Actually I believe they co-existed, developing both games at once. But of course Resistance was the major focus (and had the larger team) because it was coming out first, but soon as the game finished the whole team went over to R&C development. They are based on the same engine IIRC.

They don't have a huge team that splits off into different projects, rather they have majority of their staff work on a single project while acouple others work on some aspects of the other project. It might be different now with the PS3 but that how it was with the PS2 I believed, main reason why you wouldn't see them flood the market with titles like other developers.

What I mean was that the team creating the engine was basically creating the engine for both games at the same time. Which is why they were able to preview the Ratchet & Clank stuff so long ago, even while still working on Resistance. Ratchet & Clank is just an improved resistance engine is what I mean.

Anyways...
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

Thats the title of the next game. Screens and Info should be coming early next month. :)
Insomniac's next Ratchet & Clank game appears on the cover of the April issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly. Its title? Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. Note the expected double entendre, Insomniac did:

"The name Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction works on many levels. It signals a new era for the franchise, ties into the game's story, and includes one of our signature subtitle double entendres." -- Brian Allgeier, design director, Insomniac Games

For mountains of information on Tools of Destruction peep the April issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly. It will be on newsstands March 13 and in subscribers hands at the beginning of next month.http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3157393


This thread will probably go back a few pages, so I'll bump it again when we get some media.

This is why I liked Resistance so much. It was basically Insomniac's PS3 tester.

Game looks like friggen CG. Amazing.

Yeah tell me about it. I wish we had some city shots like the demo, but beggars can't be choosers. I'll post more if I see any more.

Also luke smith of 1up mentioned there would be some video on gamevideos soon, but probably not for another week when the mag is officially shipped to retail.
