Hey everyone,

Greetings from the SCEA Blogger’s Lounge at GDC! Last week, we teased you with our Ratchet & Clank Future Weapons Contest and the new action figures coming from DC Direct. While I’ll talk more about this in a bit, we are very happy at Insomniac to finally announce the name of our next game.

Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time will conclude the story arc that started in Tools of Destruction and continued in Quest for Booty. There will be plenty to talk about over the next few months as we work towards our fall release, and we can’t wait to share more. But for those of you wanting a first look, tune into Gametrailers TV this week on Spike TV (check your local listings for time) for the world premiere of the teaser trailer.

For those of you who have been e-mailing us with questions about the Weapons Contest and asking when and where you can submit, you’ll be happy to know that submissions are open as of tomorrow! I’m also excited to announce the Grand Prize winner will have their weapon included in Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, will be given a life-size replica of the weapon, and will win a trip to San Diego Comic-Con to meet with the dev team and reveal the winning weapon to the public there!

As inspiration for you guys, tune in tomorrow for a little video roundtable talking about some of our favorite weapons stories and experiences over the years of working on Ratchet & Clank weapons.

That’s all for now, make sure you tune into GTTV to check out the teaser trailer!

Along the way, both will finally uncover the hidden truth behind their origins, and discover their ultimate destinies.

Or is it finally time for the universe’s greatest duo to separate for good?

Hello everyone,

I post this little news that could delight the fans who eagerly await the next Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time.

Indeed, I was able to play Resistance 2 with developers Thursday evening and I added one to my friends. Today, I see on my list of friends on PSN that play Ratchet & Clank Future 2: A Crack In Time, as evidenced by the picture below:

I hide the name to prevent it to be unsettling.

So with this we learn that the game is already well advanced, probably ready for a test at E3, but that's not all.

! Indeed, reconnecting me on PSN just now, I saw the same player, still trying to play ACIT, but here I have a name carrément level reveal to you, which will surely playable at E3!

It reads RCF2: Pre-E3 Krell Canyon Playtest

So you know the name of a level, Krell Canyon and see the "Pre-E3" and "Playtest, it is likely that this is a demo for E3.


It is not much, but it is exclusive, so it's always taken it to.

, Good weekend
