[UPDATE] Insomniac Community Manager James Stevenson quickly sent out this tweet, apparently to quell rumors about Ratchet & Clank PC – at least for now.

[ORIGINAL STORY] With Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart now due in three weeks from today, Sony is launching marketing of the first Insomniac game only on PlayStation 5.
Today, the editor released a new trailer dedicated to the presentation of weapons and crossing options. However, the really interesting tidbit is actually found at the very end of the video, with the final frame labeling Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart as a “ PlayStation 5 console exclusive. ”
This wording is definitely different from what we’re used to when it comes to other proprietary Sony titles, which are usually simply labeled as PlayStation exclusives.
Considering Sony’s recent push towards PC gaming with Guerrilla’s Horizon Zero Dawn and Bend’s Days Gone (available today on PC), not to mention comments from SIE CEO Jim Ryan that more PC games would be published in the future, it is no exaggeration to interpret this. like a tease from a PC version of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart that will be released at some point.
Then again, one would think that other acclaimed PS4 games like God of War, Spider-Man, Bloodborne or Ghost of Tsushima would have priority when it comes to the PC port on a new PS5 game like Ratchet & Clank. Insomniac’s new title also makes heavy use of Sony’s next-gen NVMe SSD SSD storage and custom console I / O solution, which isn’t really available to the average PC gamer because most are still stuck with SATA SSDs or even regular mechanical hard drives.
We’ll let you know if there are any other rumors or news regarding Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart coming to PC. In the meantime, look forward to our PS5 review in the not too distant future.
