The PlayStation 4 re-imagining of the first Ratchet & Clank won’t be out until autumn next year, Insomniac Games has announced.
The platformer – which re-tells the game’s origin story and expands upon the upcoming movie’s narrative – was expected to release later this year.
It will feature several new levels along with reimagined classic locales like Metropolis, brand new weapons, and completely redone visuals, said Insomniac.
“While you might have to wait a bit longer than expected, rest assured we’re using the time wisely 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,” wrote Insomniac chief brand officer Ryan Schneider.
Speaking of the Ratchet & Clank movie, it will release on April 29, 2016 in US, and features the voice talents of Paul Giamatti as Chairman Drek, John Goodman as Ratchet’s mechanic mentor Grimroth, Bella Thorne as Galactic Ranger Cora, Rosario Dawson as Galactic Ranger support team member Elaris, and Sylvester Stallone as Victor Von Ion, Chairman Drek’s villainous lieutenant.
“Rest assured the voices you’ve come to love for Ratchet, Clank, Nefarious and Captain Qwark will also be back, voiced by the same actors as in the games,” said Schneider.
“Observant fans may also spot a few special cameos throughout the film.”
