What Could Insomniac's New IP Be?
In May, Insomniac Games announced that they would debut a brand new IP at a later time. The date in question seems to be this Monday--the company has confirmed that they will reveal their newest game at EA's E3 media briefing. The event is scheduled to take place on June 6 at 12:30 Pacific/3:30 Eastern.
The announcement was made by Insomniac via Twitter just a few short hours ago. Given the developer's success with new franchises in the past, the tweet was warmly welcomed by fans across the Twittersphere. "We are excited to reveal our brand new universe and game during the EA Press Conference on Monday, 12:30 PDT, on SpikeTV," tweeted Insomniac.
It's very interesting to think about just what Insomniac Games have up their sleeve. Because this will be a brand new chapter for the company, we can rule out all past franchises and any possible spin-offs. So what could the company have planned to launch?
The word that stuck out the most to me was "universe." How grand is the scale of this game going to be? Will it be an open world action RPG? Will it be a fantasy action-adventure game of epic proportions? Will it be a new platformer or shooter with a massive world to explore and countless things to see and do? We'll know for sure this coming Monday. Until then, all we can do is speculate and get stoked for Insomniac's big reveal.
