Insomniac games has signed a deal with EA Partners which means, you guessed it, that the California based developer will be going multi-platform for the first time in its existence. Insomniac games has been a playstation exclusive developer since its inception in 1994, and is responsible for great franchises like Ratchet & Clank and Resistance: Fall of Man. Xbox 360 owners can rejoice to the news that Insomniac games’s next game will be heading to both Xbox 360 and the PS3.

Insomniac CEO Ted Price told Develop,

Our goal was to be multiplatform on this title from the beginning, we will continue to make games for Sony, but we want to reach more gamers. And the relationship with EAP allows us to do that.

EA Partners boss David De Martini added,

We are well aligned in terms of creative collaboration. The EAP team does whatever it can in any small way to assist independent developers and do what they want to keep doing. Really, we’re the ones happy to be in the vehicle with these guys – they are doing the steering, the direction. And if they ask for directions or assistance we can provide that.
But for the most part we’ll stay in the backseat and allow them to do what they have always done – create great entertainment, but which is now available to a wider audience because of their going multiplatform.
