As Gamescom 2019 raises its curtains, game news begins to spill out. One of the biggest announcements made on the first day of the European gaming expo was an industry-related one. After years of collaborations between Sony and Insomniac Games, it’s been revealed that Sony is set to acquire the studio in full. Insomniac Games is known for creating PlayStation exclusive series like Ratchet and Clank, Spyro the Dragon, and most recently, Spider-Man for PlayStation 4. From now on, Insomniac will be a first party developer as part of Sony Worldwide Studios.

Yeah because now Spider-man and Ratchet & Clank are no longer coming to Switch? lol.

Wait, they didn't own them already?

They made Sunset Overdrive on Xbox One, and Song of the Deep was multiplatform.

Insomniac hasn't owned Spyro for like 10+ years now. Activision bought the rights in 2007 or 2008, so yeah, Spyro will still be coming to the Switch in September as planned.

As to the news, the only surprising thing here is Sony hasn't acquired Insomniac sooner. Hell, they used to share an office building with Naughty Dog (owned by Sony since 2000) for like...15-20 years or something, might as well have called them a Sony dev studio if for the fact they didn't make a couple games for other platforms.

what? are you drunk or something? activision has for years hold the rights to all crash and spyro games so insomniac has nothing to do with it at all since ps2 days that they dont own neither, they sold them off to activision for money lol.

RIP Switch users
Its not like they ever released any game for nintendo ever lol, even if they were independent they never did.

they only games they did for other consoles that arent smartphone games were

Fuse xb360/ps3
Sunset Overdrive xbone/pc
Slow Down, Bull PC
Song of the Deep pc,ps4,xbone

Edge of Nowhere pc
The Unspoken pc
Feral Rites pc


every other game they made is ps exclusive so its not like it changes anything, they never did work with nintendo, they made 1 xb360 game, 2 xbone games and 6 pc games, all else is ps exclsuive anyway so meh this buyout changes nothing.

Since it seems to be one big studio grab after another, I wouldn't be surprised if Sony also makes moves to acquire Naughty Dog considering that almost every games they developed was a Playstation exclusive.

Edit: Damn, I'm slow. Sony already owns Naughty dog since 2001.
