Spider-Man studio Insomniac Games acquired by Sony

The developer behind last year's Spider-Man and hits like the Ratchet & Clank series, Insomniac Games, is being bought up by Sony to be a PlayStation exclusive studio, joining the Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios group.

The studio has primarily been a console developer, mostly pumping out PlayStation exclusives since its inception in 1994. It did hop over to Microsoft's side to develop Sunset Overdrive in 2014. Its most recent PlayStation exclusive hit featuring the wall-crawler went on to become one of its most acclaimed games on the platform.

"Joining the WWS family gives Insomniac even greater opportunities to achieve our studio vision of making positive and lasting impressions on people’s lives," said Insomniac Games founder and CEO Ted Price, who added:

"We’ve enjoyed a special relationship with PlayStation practically since our inception. Our partnership amplifies our potential, and Spider-Man was a testament to this. We’re excited to take the next step in our growth alongside our longtime WWS partners. Most of all, we look forward to delivering fresh, new experiences for our fans."

Insomniac is currently developing the VR exclusive game Stormland for Oculus, which interestingly does not have a PlayStation VR launch attached to it. In any case, be prepared to see more PlayStation exclusives to come out of the studio in the future.
