Sony has announced that they’ve acquired Insomniac Games.
Insomniac Games are the developers behind Ratchet and Clank, Spyro the Dragon and more recently Spider-Man.
Sony and Insomniac have had a long relationship, but Insomniac has always maintained that they’d like to keep their options open when it comes to developing for different platforms. More recently, they developed Sunset Overdrive which was an Xbox One exclusive.
This means that Insomniac Games is now apart of PlayStation’s Worldwide Studios. They did however confirm that whilst Insomniac do own the rights to Sunset Overdrive (meaning a sequel could come to PlayStation exclusive), the original is an Xbox exclusive.
