Ratchet and Clank PS4 Reboot: Insomniac Explains Reason For Delay, Promises In-Game Screenshots Soon

Ratchet & Clank PS4 Reboot was delayed from its initial 2015 release date to Spring 2016. The game is now expected to launch alongside the movie, which is now scheduled for April 29 2016 release.

Since the game was originally supposed to get a release in 2015, this delay angered a lot of fans who took it over Twitter to complain about it. Insomniac Games explained the reason of the delay stating the movie as the main reason.

Insomniac Games Community Manager James Stevenson also talked about the reason for delay, stating that they always intended for the re-imagining of the game to be released close to the movie.

It boils down to finding the movie a great distributor and aligning with their schedule for proper promotion of the film. That’s all done with Focus and the April 29th, 2016 date for the film.

We always intended the re-imagining of the game to be released close to the movie, as they share elements of the origin story, so the game is also coming Spring 2016.


Lastly Insomniac Games Ryan Schneider promised in-game screenshots from the game soon.

Good thing Ratchet’s fur looks awesome in both! Wait til you see the in-game screenshots! Coming soon.

He also revealed the studio which is developing this reboot and we learn that the game is being developed in collaboration with both Insomniac Games studios.

Production has been largely led by our NC studio but both studios have collaborated.

Ratchet and Clank PS4 reboot is a complete re-imaging of the original game. The movie will detail the origin while the game will likely follow the story from the movie.

    I’m so sick of delays. They happened on launch and all the time since and here we go again. While I’m all for as many games as possible, I’m getting sick of ONLY having PC ports of old games and Indies. Don’t give me no crap about how AAA games take time! They had so many release for ps3 it was insane. If Sony doesn’t drop some bombs at E3 MS is gonna embarrass them and I damn sure don’t want to hear my brother spew that pro MS garbage for the next 6 months. Sorry for the rant but this whole taking your foot off the gas thing is really pissing me off.

    Well that’s bullshit if I ever read it. Sony owns Ratchet and Clank AND they are a Hollywood powerhouse with their own distribution and production studios. Insomniac fucked up by putting their valuable resources into the financial flop on XB1, Sunset Overdrive. They should have just stuck with Sony where they have always found their success and then we probably wouldn’t be having this discussion because R&C would be out this year.

    As much as I’m gutted that the new R&C game isn’t coming this year, it does now mean that Sony has a pretty damn packed out Spring 2016 exclusive line-up, with this, Uncharted 4 and Street Fighter 5 (console exclusive).

    This year’s still shaping up nicely even with the delays Feb had The Order 1886, March had Bloodborne.

    For the Summer this year right now Sony has Tearaway Unfolded, Until Dawn, Fat Princess Adventures and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, which is an awesome line-up IMO.
    For the rest of the year there’s also The Tomorrow Children, Deep Down, Let it Die, Rime, WiLD, Drawn to Death, Kill Strain, Alienation and Shadow of the Beast which need release dates.

    Sony also also a bunch of 1st, 2nd and 3rd party big budget exclusives in development at Worldwide Studios that could be announced at E3 and release in the Fall.

    Even if you couple everything we know about up with the 3rd party multiplats and indie stuff there’s an enormous amount of games to play in 2015 on PS4.
    Great time to be a gamer!
