Insomniac Games and Sony have come to an agreement which will see Insomniac joining PlayStation Worldwide Studios with the likes of Naughty Dog, Sony Santa Monica Studio, and Sucker Punch. Sony is pushing hard to deliver exclusive content and delivering amazing titles.
Insomniac has delivered Ratchet and Clank along with Marvel’s Spider-Man in the past which has been regarded as the best Spider-Man game ever to be released. This almost confirms that there will certainly be a Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, but it hasn’t been announced just yet.

Sony studios boss Shawn Layden said, “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. We have enjoyed a strong collaborative partnership with the studio for many years, and are thrilled to officially welcome them to the Worldwide Studios family. The addition of Insomniac Games to SIE WWS reiterates our commitment to developing world class gaming experiences that can only be found on the PlayStation platform.”
To which Ted Price, Insomniac Games founder said, “Joining the WWS family gives Insomniac even greater opportunities to achieve our studio vision of making positive and lasting impressions on people’s lives. 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.”
This is certainly huge news for PlayStation owners as now we can see Sony being in total control of the studio and they can pull the strings while letting Insomniac develop things from their own perspective.
