The HD remake mania continues as fans want to see a Ratchet & Clank HD collection, an idea to which Insomniac is favorable. However, there’s one stipulation: they won’t be the ones developing it.
In a Twitter message, the studio stated: “We won’t make it, but we’d support Sony if they decided to do it.”
Sony is currently working on a HD collection of Sly Cooper which is being developed at Sanzaru Games rather than the original team at Sucker Punch. The God of War HD collection was also developed by an outside studio.
Ever since we got to experience Kratos’s first two adventures in high-definition, there have been rumors of HD remakes of other PlayStation franchises which Sony has confirmed. Now, Joystiq reports that Shuhei Yoshida, Sony Worldwide Studios President, is aware of the outcry for Team ICO’s games to be collected in a HD collection.
"As soon as we released God of War in an HD collection, there were people that were giving us suggestions," he said. "And ICO and Shadow of the Colossus is on the top of the list. And we are very aware and we want to see and play it in HD with a better framerate as well, so that’s something we are very, very aware of."
That’s a long way off, though. Sly Cooper Collection, the next HD remake, is due out this November.
