Development studio Insomniac Games has no plans of cutting ties with Sony and moving towards multiplatform development any time soon. This was revealed by Ryan Schneider, Insomniac's director of marketing and communications, in an interview with Games Industry.
When asked if they though Resistance 2 would have sold better if it was multiplatform, Schneider said:
Sure, as an independent developer, you do consider those options - but at the same time we do have a great relationship with Sony. We've been with Sony for a long, long time now, and that's where we intend to stay for the foreseeable future.
The choice to remain with Sony seems to be an easy one for Insomniac, as Schneider says that Sony "bends over backwards to work with its development teams":
Their product development team is second to none - we absolutely love working with them. Their PR and marketing folks are terrific to work with and very dedicated to the cause, and there are some very creative people there. We feel very fortunate to have that sort of relationship in place.
Insomniac will be releasing Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time this fall on the PS3.
