Insomniac Games has no immediate intentions to develop for the NGP. At least, not in a formal capacity, and not anytime soon. Speaking to attendees at its 3rd annual Community Day event in California, the studio's senior community manager James Stevenson said while it would likely support Sony's upcoming handheld in some capacity, it would not be developing anything in-house as it is "totally focused on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.”
Much of that focus is currently on Insomniac's next two major releases, Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One; both of which received top billing at the developer's community event. The studio also used the day to announce Resistance 3 will feature PlayStation Move and 3D support when it lands in North America on September 6th.
Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is expected to release this Fall.
Word that Insomniac isn't getting its hands dirty with the NGP isn't all that distressing considering the studio still plans to support Sony's new machine in some form, and the Resistance series is already coming to the system by way of Nihilistic Software. Moreover, when and if the NGP takes off, we're sure the Insomniac team will be tempted to release a Ratchet & Clank: Size Matter follow-up, even if it means shifting their focus to make it themselves.
