Insomniac Games Revealing Its Multiplatform Game Next Week

Finally, Achievements and Trophies living in harmony under Insomniac's roof.

I'm about to hop onto a plane to Los Angeles, but wanted to give you guys a quick heads up!

When Insomniac Games announced its decision to become a multiplatform developer last year, the studio didn't reveal a new game alongside the news. We'll finally know what game will mark Insomniac Games' move onto Xbox 360 at the Electronic Arts press conference on Monday, according to the company's Twitter account.

Speculate away! (Please don't be another shooter.)

This is not Insomniac's new game.

I dunno... That screenshot makes it look like it could possibly be a shooter.

Posted by fillmoejoe

It's an FPS or third person shooter.

mass hysteria

I hated Resistance but I love every single entry in the Ratchet and Clank series. Hopefully this isn't EA's new shooter...
Edited by crusader8463

Just 360? No PC love? I would love to see them bundle all the Ratchet and Clank games and put them out for everyone.That's one series I always wanted to get into, but sadly I didn't when they were new and I don't like to start in on series half way through and it's just too much of a pain trying to find the old games. So I doubt I will get to play the games unless they do a bundle/remake.

Is that some sort of robot spider in the background? My brain interprets images shrouded in fog oddly.

please do be another shooter

@nick_verissimo: Looks like Galactus to me.

@gbrading: That's Resistance 3.

LOL. That would have made it a much better game.

lol, it totally does.

Whatever it is, keep insomniac away from first person perspectives.
 
Something about an FPS that makes insomniac throw out all their creativity.

Cannot unsee.

I'm okay with it being a shooter as long as it's more like Ratchet and Clank than Resistance.

Posted by Stealthmaster86

Platform action game like ratchet and Clank.

@gbrading: That's just a Resistance 3 screenshot. No details of their new game have come out yet.

Who gave Alan Wake a machine gun?

Posted by brocool

Patrick +1 for keeping us informed! 
 
My random wild guess is a racing game.

Posted by jkuc316

It's a Sci-Fi shooter! (Doesn't EA have enough of that? They already have ME and Dead Space...)

Was about to post this EXACT comment. Also, Alan Wake doesn't stand a goddamned chance against Galactus.

idk, a non shooter like ratchet just sounds like a bad business idea. Remember viva pinata?

Posted by Sticky_Pennies

It's going to be a goddamn action-platformer, but also a role-playing game. I'm going to call it right here.

Posted by zombie2011

hopefully it will be better than the Resistance games.

Either that or it's going to be really disappointing to find out the secret to defeating the World Eater is to shine a flashlight in his face for a while and then shoot him. Bet Mr. Fantastic never thought of that.

I really doubt that they would look into getting back into FPS considering it is a crowded market just in EA's own portfolio. 
 
I would bet that they would go back to action platforming but with some sort of twist. I wouldn't be totally surprised if they were at the Microsoft conference considering there is speculation that Bungie will be at Sony's. 
 
They may try to perfect "parkor" style of gameplay but with their twist, whatever that is. I sort of think they got shafted by Sony just because Killzone got much more marketing than Resistance but it wasn't that much to begin with.

Pachter called it.

Where's your precious science to save you now, Reed Richards! More like Pee'd Bitch-ard!

Does multiplatform also include the pc? I hope it includes the pc.

 It will be on kinect, move and involve space probably.

Amen!

Posted by Ashen

Based on that picture it looks like a first or third person shooter with a The Mist/Monsters vibe.

Posted by buzz_killington

I've gotten around to playing Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time recently, and without exaggeration, it is one of my favorite games of all time. It just looks so damned beautiful, runs buttery smooth, control like a dream, and has an actually interesting and funny story. Insomniac is an awesome studio.

Edited by m0rdr3d

I hope it takes place in a free-roam waterworld like the screenshot could suggest... It won't. :( 
 
EDIT:  Alan Wind Waker
Posted by Red

I wouldn't mind a kinda light-hearted shooter comedy, like a Zombieland tone or something, and, after Ratchet and Clank, I think Insomniac could do that pretty dang well.

Call of Duty

It'll be a kart racer prominently featuring bobble heads.

@Ryan:  loving the fantastic four references and everything from the bearded messiah (not will smith) of whiskey media himself and i feel and hope this game will be a departure from the resistance like game play and fps atmosphere would be a breath of fresh air to see some sort of action adventure game done by them done in the style of ratchet and clank and for the 360 it feels needed cause don't have many or any games that are really like that on the 360 so to see a company do a game like it for it will defiantly be a big step forward  
also a wishful happy birthday goes out there as well

Screw you all, I really enjoyed the Resistance games U_U Though this fan-fiction about Alan Wake vs Galactus would admittedly make R3 a whole heap better. Put in Evil Dead's Ash Williams and you're sorted.

Insomniac is a great developer and it would be nice to see a new platforming game, It would be great to see an evolution in that genre, this generation we have had very few of these games especially on 360(I only remember the launch title and i even forget its name, It was fun at the time but obviously not memorable), A hybrid of sorts would be great with some rpg elements as thats always nice lol, really i have no clue just blowing smoke.
 
The screenshot does not fill me with hope, Please not a shooter, Resistence 1 was ok i enjoyed it as a launch title i got with ps3 but for some reason i hated the 2nd game, I only played it a couple of weeks back and i had to stop playing after a couple of hours and psn was down so i could not try MP as it was a rental so i sent it back.
 
Ratchet games are fun, I wonder what this means for PS3, I know they are a big team so I assume they will still be doing PS3 games after R3, this generation i believed insomniac have spread themselfs a little thin trying to bring a title out each year, If they put a bigger team for longer on Resistence it probably would have been better.

@shadystx That's a screenshot of Resistance 3 not there new game.
Posted by Tim_svlad

A Crack in Time was fantastic. Looking forward to what they do next.

Posted by the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG

its too bad the resistance series never took off.  i actually had fun with the second game but i wasnt blown away completely.

Posted by nick_verissimo
@crusader8463 holy shit it does! Let's hope that's the game.
Posted by shadystx
@chickdigger802: Viva Pinata 1 was a real good game it got good reviews, It was a big surprise game for me of that year also the bombcast guys liked it too.
Posted by Xpgamer7

I'd like to see a strategy game where you take control of individual teamates at any given time.

Posted by Cirdain

Also, Hitman: Absolution is being shown at E3 as well.

Posted by pyromaniac

I am hoping to see some good stuff from them for the 360.

Posted by TheHBK

Wait, Insomniac could have been putting out multiplatform stuff?  I guess sony was giving them a lot of money to stay PS3 exclusive because that is amazing they chose to stay that long.  Also, why is Galactus in this game?
