It wasn’t that long ago that Insomniac Games, the independent developer responsible for creating critically acclaimed franchises such as Spyro The Dragon, Ratchet and Clank, and the more recent Resistance series, expressed their intent on staying with Sony as an exclusive third party developer. However, whispers out of GDC seem to imply the contrary.
There’s not much to go on here, but IGN claims to have spoken with an anonymous, yet very reliable source who claims Insomniac is creating cross-platform titles for both the PS3 and Microsoft’s Xbox 360. When contacted by IGN, Ted Price, president of Insomniac Games, said only;
“[Insomniac] does not comment on rumors and speculation.”
Considering Insomniac’s past successful franchises have been PS3 exclusives, as well as that billboard for Resistance 3 we saw a while back, we can’t help but assume an entirely new multiplatform IP is the works should this rumor turn out to be true.
Since nothing has been confirmed and details are essentially non-existent, we’ll be sure to update you as soon as anything comes to light.
[UPDATE] Making good on our promise to keep you posted, we bring you a recent forum post from NeoGAF made by none other than Insomniac Games’ Community Relations Manager, James Stevenson:
Well guys, Ted has spoken so you have that.
But c’mon, didn’t we just deal with this rumor like two months ago? And a few months before that? And so on?
And that’s that. Move along, people. Show’s over, nothing to see here.
