UPDATE: A few curious images have been posted to the gaming forum Neogaf. It’s looking like the title of the new Insomniac/Sony game is Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus:

For years Insomniac Games existed as one of Sony‘s first party studios. The studio is responsible for producing both the Resistance and Ratchet and Clank franchises. Recently, at E3, Insomniac mixed things up with the Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive. This announcement had everyone thinking that Sony and Insomniac’s exclusive days were behind them, but we may have been wrong.

Both Sony and Insomniac’s Twitter accounts have been releasing cryptic images for the past two days. The first bearing the text ‘When Worlds Collide‘ (Not Powerman 5000) with the second image elaborating upon the first and adding the phrase ‘Heroes Return‘. With rampant speculation abound, what are we to make of the teaser image? One of our readers suggested a Ratchet and Clank (Insomniac) meets Jak and Daxter (Naughty Dog) scenario on the horizon. This hypothesis could very well turn out to be true considering the scripted feud the duos shared in the recent Playstation All-Stars game, and the fact that both IP’s are Sony exclusive.

Insomniac later tweeted there was an announcement heading our way tomorrow, July 11th. What’s your take on the situation? Are we seeing a new Playstation 4 IP, or the collaboration of two much loved franchises?
