Ratchet & Clank dev goes multiplatform

26 May 10

Insomniac Games signs deal with EA that will see the studio release its first multiplatform title in its 16-year history.

Famed for PS3 exclusives such as Ratchet & Clank and Resistance, Insomniac Games will now work with Xbox 360 under the EA stable. An unnamed title is in production at the company's Burbank studio but no details have been released on what it might be. You’ve got to think some sort of platform / shooter though.

"Working with EA Partners allows us to extend the reach of our games to a multiplatform audience while retaining ownership of the intellectual property," said Ted Price, founder and CEO of Insomniac Games. "We are excited and eager to introduce Insomniac to a new group of gamers while reinforcing to our loyal fans what makes our games special."

Is this (along with Bungie’s move away from being only on Xbox) the beginning of the end of platform exclusivity? As a PS3 fan does it feel like a kick in the teeth? Do you care? Tell us below.
