Sony might be skipping the Gamescom festivities but that does not mean they are not making the news. Sony announced the company has acquired Insomniac Games, the studio behind Marvel’s Spider-Man, Ratchet and Clank, Sunset Overdrive, and Resistance.

Sony has always had a strong relationship with Insomniac Games to the point where you would believe the company was already owned by the PlayStation 4 creator.
Insomniac Games created the PlayStation-exclusive series Resistance, and Ratchet and Clank and recently released the highly acclaimed Marvel’s Spider-Man.
The studio has worked on third-party titles in the past and one specifically exclusive to the Xbox One, Sunset Overdrive. They are currently working on Stormlands and The Unspoken, all Oculus exclusive titles.
Of course, the studio will be only pumping out PS4 exclusive games after they wrap-up development of their titles in the pipeline.
