Ratchet And Clank Returns Fall 2009?

To their credit, Insomniac always keeps us in the loop. They said we wouldn't hear or see much about Resistance 2 until they had fully completed Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, and we're assuming they won't be starting on another R&C until Resistance 2 is complete and finished. ...but that's this fall, so shouldn't we start looking for another next-gen Ratchet entry?

Well, according to certain members of the gaming press who have completed the downloadable Ratchet and Clank Future: Quest for Booty, a new Ratchet and Clank for the PlayStation 3 may arrive towards the end of 2009. A message pops up upon finishing Quest for Booty that - supposedly - tells us a new R&C arrives during the fall of 2009, although it doesn't provide an exact date. Unfortunately, as PSBeyond reports, this information comes from translated details gathered at European gaming site Gamer.nl, so this is hardly official. No, Quest for Booty isn't available yet on the PlayStation Network; it's scheduled to drop on August 21, which isn't too far off. But hey, if you're a big fan of the franchise, you now have even more incentive to purchase this expansion to last year's stellar Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction.

It wouldn't surprise us at all to hear about another R&C, but it does seem as if autumn of 2009 is quite soon. They do have an established foundation from Future, though, so... We'll let you know if we can confirm that message at the end of Quest for Booty.

Well i don't think fall 09 isn't an accurate date cause Insomaniac churns out one game every year and they've all dropped during fall. But anywayz, OMG next ratchet, no one can be excited enough.

I never really played any of the Ratchet games until Tools of Destruction and I was quite blown away by it.

Fall 09? Little far away but I guess it's probably gonna be a HUGE improvement from Tools. Can't wait!

Same here, I always thought of it more a Kid's game, but turned out pretty fun.

I just figured this was a given. Insomniac has released a console game every fall for YEARS they obviously weren't planning on Resistance 3 by next year so it was either going to be Ratchet or new IP either of which i'm fine with. Insomniac is THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS with this kind of stuff. Ya they churn out sequels but they are of such high quality that it doesn't matter.

@Warukyure: Give Going Commando and Up Your Arsenal a try. They are just as good as ToD and the graphics aren't bad. I never played the original and don't feel like I've missed much story-wise and I've heard bad things about deadlocked (and didn't play it) so I can't reccomend those. But GC and UYA are great.
