Ratchet & Clank remake delayed to spring 2016

Movie set for April 29 theatrical release.

Ratchet and Clank

Insomniac Games’ Ratchet & Clank reboot for PlayStation 4 has been delayed to spring 2016, the studio announced.

The Ratchet & Clank movie, which the game was planned to launch alongside, has also been delayed from its planned 2015 release. It will launch in U.S. theaters nationwide on April 29, 2016.

A star-studded cast was announced alongside the date:

  • Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti as Chairman Drek
  • Golden Globe winner John Goodman as Ratchet’s mechanic mentor Grimroth
  • Young Artist Award winner Bella Thorne as Galactic Ranger Cora
  • Rosario Dawson as Galactic Ranger support team member Elaris
  • Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone as Victor Von Ion, Chairman Drek’s villainous lieutenant

The video game will re-tell the origin story that ties in closely and expands upon the movie’s narrative. It will feature several new levels, re-imagined classic locales like Metropolis, new weapons, and completely redone visuals.

The developer says the delay will allow it “to further polish the game to a spit-shine level, with dazzling shader response, awe-inspiring effects, velvety smooth animations, and spectacular new gameplay segments.”

Insomniac promises it’ll be sharing more about the game “soon.”
