Sony Is Acquiring Insomniac Games, Studio Behind ‘Spider-Man’ for PS4

Sony announced by way of its PlayStation Twitter account during Gamescom. Insomniac Games is the 14th studio to join the SIE WWS family.

Insomniac's last release Marvel's Spider-Man is the best selling PS4 exclusive game to date. Some of their most well known multiplatform games include Sunset Overdrive, for the Xbox One and Microsoft Windows and Song of the Deep, which was also released on the PS4.

Insomniac Games is the developer of PlayStation 4's top-selling "Marvel's Spider-Man" and other PS games, including the "Ratchet & Clank" franchise.

This is definitely good news for PlayStation fans, and for Insomniac, it gives them a partner they're familiar with.

Trump blamed the Fed for last week's market volatility. Is he right?
Only 2 per cent of the 226 respondents now see a recession this year, compared to 10 per cent in February's survey, Nabe said. Thirty-four per cent of the economists surveyed believe a slowing economy will tip into recession in 2021.


Founded in 1994, Insomniac Games has worked with Sony for more than 20 years, starting with the first PlayStation. "Our partnership amplifies our potential, and Marvel's Spider-Man was a testament to this".

While there's no official word on what Insomniac is working on at present, it wouldn't be a stretch to assume a follow-up to Spider-Man is in the works. Of course that could be because the two studios have traditionally had a great relationship - in addition to the above-mentioned titles, Insomniac are also the creators of early PlayStation mascot (and my childhood gaming hero) Spyro the Dragon.

That's right, Insomniac Games is now owned by SIE. Ted Price, the Ceo and founder of Insomniac Games issued a statement about joining Sony's family on the Insomniac Games website. "Most of all, we look forward to delivering fresh, new experiences for our fans". "Our structure and approach will remain intact across both Burbank and Durham, NC studios, and we will continue to cultivate our unique culture". As mentioned, the studio is now developing Stromland in conjunction with Oculus Studios so there (hopefully) shouldn't be an issue with the experience coming to Oculus Rift.
