The Ratchet & Clank series has been Insomniac Games‘ longest running I.P. spanning from the PS2 generation in 2002 into the PlayStation 3 with the Ratchet & Clank Future series. With each on the PS2 surpassing at least one million units, Insomniac is no stranger to sales. But with Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time’s sales missing the mark for the NPD numbers, is Insomniac Games disappointed?
The answer straight from the horse’s mouth is a resonating no. According to the community managers on Insomniac’s official podcast, the Full Moon Show, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time was the fastest selling Ratchet & Clank title in the franchise’s history. This should come to no surprise to fans and gamers alike seeing that A Crack in Time could be the last Ratchet & Clank title from Insomniac.
In any case, the Ratchet & Clank series should be applauded for its seven year presence on the PlayStation platforms across seven titles (not counting the PSP iteration by High Impact Games). Did you buy the game? And more importantly, how would you feel if the series is complete? Post your thoughts in the comments below.
