Insomniac Games has been known to develop mostly for Sony, with the occasional multi-platform and Microsoft exclusive game. Now, Sony has purchased the acclaimed developer.

Insomniac is known for developing a lot of games. Such as Spyro the Dragon, Resistance, Sunset Overdrive, FUSE, and the recently released Marvel’s Spider-Man. With the decision finalized CEO of Insomniac Games, Ted Price, made an official announcement.

Today we announced that Insomniac has a new home as we join the Worldwide Studios family at Sony Interactive Entertainment. It feels more like a homecoming though.  We’ve collaborated with Sony for more than 20 years — spanning all four PlayStation consoles, 20 total games and six franchises. We still work closely today with many of the same Sony teammates as we did when we released the original Spyro the Dragon in 1998.

The decision to join forces with Sony extends far beyond familiarity. Our studio vision is to create experiences that have a positive and lasting impact on people’s lives. As we look ahead to our future, we know that joining the WWS family gives us the best opportunities to fully achieve that vision on a much larger scale. Further, we believe that Sony shares a similar vision to positively impact players’ lives, their employees’ lives and the games industry at large.

So today merely marks the beginning of a new chapter in our studio’s growth and evolution. We’re excited to put Insomniac in the best position to deliver fresh experiences for our fans for many years to come. Our structure and approach will remain intact across both Burbank and Durham, NC studios, and we will continue to cultivate our unique culture.

It’s been a crazy ride for sure. Now, we’re ready for the next phase of our journey, and can’t wait to explore new worlds with our Sony family and loyal fans.

Until next time!

Ted

It’s not clear if Insomniac will now make games only for Sony’s platforms. As Sunset Overdrive as a Microsoft exclusive title.
