PS4 Ratchet & Clank Game Delayed to Spring 2016

Ratchet & Clank movie coming April 29, 2016.


The PlayStation 4 re-imagining of the original Ratchet & Clank game has been delayed to spring 2016, developer Insomniac Games has announced via post to the PlayStation Blog.

"While you might have to wait a bit longer than expected, rest assured we're using the time wisely to further polish the game to a spit-shine level, with dazzling shader response, awe-inspiring effects, velvety smooth animations, and spectacular new gameplay segments," Insomniac Games chief brand officer Ryan Schneider said. "Really, we can’t wait to show it to you."

Earlier today, we learned that Ratchet & Clank animated movie was delayed to next year, and the PlayStation Blog post revealed the exact release date of April 29, 2016. The Ratchet & Clank re-imagining was always set to launch alongside the movie and expand upon its narrative, which explains why the game was delayed as well.

Insomniac said the new Ratchet & Clank will feature several new levels as well as re-imagined locations from the original game like Metropolis. It will also have new weapons and new visuals that take advantage of the PS4's hardware.
