Insomniac joins PlayStation's already impressive stable of studios that includes Naughty Dog, Media Molecule, Sucker Punch Productions and Polyphony Digital.
Given how much we enjoyed Insomniac's Spider-Man game (and, yes, given that BMD is mostly a PS4 household), we certainly aren't opposed to the idea of another Insomniac Spider-Man game; hell, we might even play a few more of 'em.
Microsoft's recent slew of studio acquisitions is not going unanswered at its primary competitor Sony as the Japanese company is set to purchase Spider-Man developer Insomniac Games. On the Marvel's Spider-Man front, well we can safely assume that any potential sequel will also be a PlayStation exclusive. We're excited to take the next step in our growth alongside our longtime WWS partners. Insomniac will become an exclusive PlayStation developer, Sony says. Building on a working relationship between Insomniac Games and SIE spanning more than 20 years, this acquisition enhances the creative force within SIE WWS and formally adds a studio to the PlayStation family that continues to raise the bar on open world, story-driven games.
"Insomniac Games is one of the most highly-acclaimed development studios in the industry and their legacy of best-in class storytelling and gameplay is unparalleled", said Shawn Layden, Chairman, SIE WWS. "Most of all, we look forward to delivering fresh, new experiences for our fans".
