Forums - Gaming Discussion - Will there be a Ratchet 2 remake in 2019?

Do you think insomniac will remake ratchet 2 for next year or 2020? Wouldn't take a lot of man power or time and they are a big studio. The first remake was a huge success. 

 

My logic is it would be a nice end of life ps4 title before next gen hits but part of me thinks Sony would release it as a cross gen title when the ps5 launches. So if this is being made should they release it next year or hold off until the ps5 2020 launch?

No.

Well at least not if your reasoning is that it won't take a lot of work.

Remakes aren't remasters. The latter doesn't take a lot of work. The former is like making a new game.

Its possible........ but its a lot of work.



No. New Ratchet sequel instead.

We wont see Ratchet for quite some time, maybe after a few years of PS5 one would come

A remake is a lot of work, so I dont think it would be that easy/ quick to do.

I think the next Ratchet won't be a remake, and will be a PS5 only game. i do, however, see remasters of the Trilogy series (PS3) getting done. Honestly I am quite surprised that Sony didn't just follow up the Ratchet remake with remasters of the entire series (over a few years).

But also I believe that the director for the Ratchet games is currently tied up in something else, so that could play a role too.

After remaking 1 already remaking 2 wouldn't be hard for insomniac. Assets already made and the story and level blueprint already there.

Assets could be used for a new game too could they not?

Would they follow the story exactly, and not make any changes?

Are the level designs in the 1st remake consistent with the original PS2 game?

They actually cut content from the original. Less locations. It was a $40 launch to reflect that. So yeah this wouldn't take as long as a normal game. 



Insomniacs main focus will be on Spiderman 2. If they have a secondary team they could work on another ratchet, or maybe another developer will take it up. Ratchet on PS4 was amazing, either better than or tied with crack in time for best in the series imo. Whether Ratchet 2 is based on the original or not, doesn't really matter to me. The PS4 version diverged a lot from the original anyway.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

The first remake was to coincide with the movie though. So unless they're planning a 2nd Ratchet movie, I doubt it.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
