Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a continuation of the reboot series, following 2016's Ratchet & Clank. Rift Apart was announced alongside the PS5 reveal in 2020 and is being developed by Insomniac Games — the team behind the original Ratchet & Clank series, Spyro, and Marvel's Spider-Man. In 2019, Sony officially acquired the studio after working together extensively over the past 20 years, making Insomniac a first-party PlayStation team.

The original Ratchet & Clank launched in 2002 for the PS2 and was critically well-received, thanks to its platforming, visuals, and wacky weapon selection — along with the dynamic between the two main characters. In 2016, Insomniac rebooted the series and developed a game aptly titled Ratchet & Clank, making use of the PS4's power. Now, Rift Apart will do the same when it launches exclusively for PS5 this summer.
