Insomniac has stated that the company may consider including multiplayer functionality in the next Ratchet and Clank title, even though the decision was made not to feature it in the latest instalment on PlayStation 3.
Speaking to MTV News, Insomniac’s Brain Allgeier expressed his disappointment in the number of multiplayer games logged in Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal and Deadlocked, stating, "[W]e were kind of disappointed to find that less than 5 percent of players actually played [multiplayer online] who actually played the game for both Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal and Deadlocked.”
"And so, in looking at Ratchet & Clank: Future, we thought, well we could spend 30 percent of our resources on multiplayer, but that would take 30 percent away from the single-player experience."
Despite this, Alleiger hinted that the company would like to "go down that road again someday", harmonizing with earlier comments made by the firm, when it told Eurogamer that multiplayer would return “one day.”
He also revealed that the game would link up with the PSP title Secret Agent Clank "in some secret, undisclosed way", though did not go into specific detail.
