Pre-orders are now available, but there’s no mention of an option for PS4 players …
The Lombax lives!
A new exclusive next-gen console is coming this summer, as Insomniac Games revealed that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart It will be released on June 11, 2021. That’s good news (if you have a PS5), along with the news that pre-orders are now available (if you think you will have a PS5 by June 11).
Marcus smith, Creative Director of Insomniac Games, He appeared on the PlayStation Blog to share a lot of knowledge about the game itself., all the exclusivity of the title for PS5 and tons of pre-order bonus options. That news began with the remarkable reminder of Ratchet and Clank thriving during its 19 years and the existence of a multi-generational console, including many other adapted media along the way. I just hope that longtime fans (like me) can play the PS5 exclusive sooner rather than later. (And, as always, be careful when pre-ordering.)
Here’s how Insomniac Games broke the news about the new title’s release date:
Described as a standalone story that’s perfect for beginners, though with connections to existing games fans will know and love, here’s what Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart it’s actually about:
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a new full-length adventure. When the evil Dr. Nefarious uses a device that can access alternate dimensions to find a galaxy where he always wins, Ratchet and Clank are separated. As they try to reunite, they’ll meet a new Lombax resistance fighter, explore new and familiar places (but with new dimensional twists!), And wield a whole new arsenal of out-of-this-world weapons.
Insomniac also revealed the eye-catching new title art, which you can view above, along with various versions of it on the blog. Some of that art is courtesy of pre-order bonuses, which include:

And while Insomniac teases the name of the new Lombax, they are still not revealing anything. My guess? Rivet. Rivet the Lombax.
And yes, we know you are asking for the name of the new Lombax. And it is not fair that we have put it in art and we have not told you yet. Hold on, you’ll soon feel pink.
Stay tuned for more as we hear it!
