It was only a matter of time before either Sony or Microsoft decided to snap up developer Insomniac Games and, with Marvel’s Spider-Man selling like hotcakes, it makes sense that it was Sony who jumped at the opportunity.

The deal between Insomniac Games and Sony is still in process and, while we aren’t sure what the numbers are, it’s safe to guess that we are talking about very large amount of money, especially since Marvel’s Spider-Man sold over 13.2 million copies.
Insomniac Games will join PlayStation’s other first-party studios, like Naughty Dog, Media Molecule, and Sucker Punch.
It seems Sony is gearing up for the battle between the next generation of consoles. Of course, this move makes sense as rumour suggests that the PlayStation 5 will be releasing next year sometime.
In fact, Sony has always had a special relationship with the developer since Ratchet and Clank, Resistance and Spyro the Dragon series all released on Sony’s consoles over the years.
“We’ve enjoyed a special relationship with PlayStation practically since our inception. Our partnership amplifies our potential, and Marvel’s Spider-Man was a testament to this. We’re excited to take the next step in our growth alongside our longtime WWS partners. Most of all, we look forward to delivering fresh, new experiences for our fans,” Insomniac Games CEO and Founder Ted Price commented.
This is great news for Playstation fans and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for this new partnership with Insomniac.
