We all know that they will be working on Spider-man 2 but i was curious what you guys want to see the most from Insomniac now that they are a Sony WWS. Personally i'd like to see them trying their hands on a new IP.

Not that I'd vote for it, but you could add Sunset Overdrive too.
Isn't that Microsoft's IP?
I'd like to see another resistance but after Spiderman sold 13 million copies the only thing Insomniac is going to be making for now is more Spiderman.
Of course Spider-man 2 is a no brainer from a business perspective. But i was asking more about our personal preferences.

Insomniac has at least two geographic distinct studios and about 3 different teams (this may have changed since I'm basing this off what I recall reading during the PS3 days). Even right now, they release a lot of games compared to other studios. They will probably continue to do so.

Nope. It was Insomniac's. Now it's Sony's.
I see.Well i didn't knew that (and i think many people didn't knew that). But still just like you i wouldn't want to see another one either way.

Those are both fantastic games, but I'm not sure why they need to answer to each other. They're doing fairly different things.
I meant that I want to see them doing an expansive 3D platformer like Odyssey. They did damn near Mario quality in the past with Going Commando and A Crack in Time, I'd much rather see them doing a bonkers mascot platformer than anything else.

Right now it feels like Odyssey raised the bar for platformers and yet there isn't really any competition because nobody else is doing it. If Sony were to do an extremely high production value platformer, Insomniac would be the best choice (well, second best choice, but I think Sucker Punch bringing back Sly is even more unlikely).

Resistance!!

First game was amazing to me, enjoyed it more then the sequels. We just had Spiderman, Ratchet remaster was this gen already, the only other thing I'd love is a PS4 Sunset so everybody gets a chance to play it....AFTER Resistance remasters and Resistance 4 (or reboot)

There's Yooka-Laylee and Super Lucky's Tale.

Oh. You meant good 3D platformers?
I'm craving 3D platformers so much that I enjoyed YL and I'm pretty sure I would enjoy SLT as well lol. It's that bad. I miss the PS2 era so much. I understand why this would never happen and I don't blame Sony at all, but if I could get ND, SP and Insomniac to put up a second team to develop a new Jak, Sly and Ratchet games I'd be in heaven.

I'd like to see Ratchet, Resistance, new IP, Sunset overdrive, spiderman

in that order. am not a big spiderman fan, most people are but I just don't like spiderman too much, beyond the first two sam raimi films I never liked spiderman too much. don't hate him, just not a big fan. to me he seemed super unnecessary and a weird looking standout in the marvel movies

you have all of these humans that have robotic parts or fighting skills. or aliens that have legendary stones. and then you have an annoying kid wearing a silly costume. it just didn't look right.

the game was good it wasn't bad at all but I'd rather have a ton of other superhero games before spiderman.


I'd love a new resistance its my favorite shooter franchise of all time. but they said they aren't planning on it. which is fine hope an another dev works on it

Ratchet and clank from them is guarnteed, one of my top 3 favorite franchises too . insomniac is just my favorite developer overall

SSO is definitely fun game for me. its like infamous , a bit different. but i like that kind of games. looks great, plays great has comedy and action. just my type of game really.

tho they always come up with great ideas so can't wait to see whatever they make next. they never made 1 game that I played and didn't like. but they aren't like most studios, they can finish a great game in 1-3 years depending on the size, spiderman took them I believe 3 years, not a perfect game, but I'd say its better than arkham knight.

I'd like to see an another shooter from them if not Resistance, and an adventure game something they never done before . like a game without technology or so to speak.

I would like to see them topping a crack in time in terms of how good a Ratchet game can be. I think UYA is the best personally but most like ACIT the most.

I woulda stopped playing video games long time ago if it wasn't for their games mostly ratchet and clank

My answer would be resistance

Spiderman is still recent ( last year, and i dont know if theyre allowed to make another one after the sony vs disney story )

We already had enough rachet game for now

Their new ip doesnt always work ( FUSE)

And i miss the resistance game

would love a new sunset overdrive game aswell but after their recent first party partnership with sony i dont have any hope for this to happened

Their Spider-man game is not in the MCU canon, so it is not affected by the movie deal AFAIK.

Cancun, Mexico.
Seeing as they got a lot of experience with making games for Oculus Rift, a Ratchet & Clank VR game would breathe new life into the admittedly tired franchise.

Of course they can (and will) make more Spider-Man games.

I want them to port Sunset Overdrive to PS4.
I couldn't even finish it on Xbox, so I'll pass. But, if Sony does decide to bring it, they should put a different team/studio on the project. Insomniac has bigger fish to fry than porting a, now, older game.

Really tough to pick between Spider-Man and Resistance.

I'm gonna say Spider-Man because the first game was a really solid first entry and I'm excited to see how much they improve and build on that foundation for the sequel.

I do have a soft spot for Resistance though (especially the first one) and I'd happily see a reboot.

Ratchet is fun but we've had a lot of Ratchet over the years. I'd happily just see one Ratchet game per gen.

Nope. It was Insomniac's. Now it's Sony's.
Yeah....a horrible deal by Microsoft. Glad they worked with Insomniac. Love them and love Sunset. But they shoulda fought for the IP (its what they so desperately need).

At least they smartened up since the beginning of the gen and now retain the IPs (like Ori).

That was never an option though. Insomniac's first choice had always been PlayStation. But, they really wanted to own their own IP. Microsoft agreeing to that is the only reason Sunset Overdrive was on Xbox.

Sadly for Insomniac, it did not work out how they had hoped. The game underperformed as an Xbox One exclusive, thus ultimately leading to where we are today.

The Last of Us may be third person, but it is hardly third person.

Sunset Overdrive was the exclusive that I was most excited about on ANY system, but it never grabbed me sadly.

How is Spider-Man trailing? One of their best games ever imo, I could care less about yet another R&C. How is Resistance beating SM???

I voted Spider-Man 2 but tbf, I'd want a Black Panther game made by them so badly

Also, a proper Avengers game in the vein of Spidey one

New Ip of course, I would personally love a third person adventure-rpg with the classic lighthearted charm that Insomniac puts on every release, ok, maybe a new Ratchet but more focused in crafting, stats, exploration and dialogue than in platforming and shoting.

I want resistance, but I think they are only going to make spidey games, while ratchet and clank in between big Spider-Man games.

A new IP featuring aliens and UFOs. I would want it to start out like you're unraveling a conspiracy in a small town setting and have it gradually grow into something bigger and more intense.
