Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was announced at the first June launch of PlayStation 5 games as a console exclusive. However, Sony then announced that a number of future games from its in-house studios would also appear on PS4, including Horizon Forbidden West. But regarding the new adventures of Ratchet and Clank, clarifications have not been received until today – now it has become clear that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will be released exclusively on the PlayStation 5.
It all started with a post from Twitter user Spidey889. He asked the developers the following question: “Hi guys. I’m not sure if you can announce this now, but I’m very curious. Will Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart be out on PS4 or only on PlayStation 5? “ This was followed by a short answer from Insomniac Games: “This is a PS5 exclusive”…
Probably, the decision to release the project only on PlayStation 5 is partly due to its gameplay mechanics. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart actively uses portals to move across locations and even between entire dimensions. The process is quite fast, judging by the published videos. This, according to the authors, is achieved thanks to the PlayStation 5’s high-speed SSD, and on PS4, implementing the mechanics could cause problems.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will be released as part of “Release window” PS5, the exact date has not been disclosed yet.
