Okay Ratchet fans, here's the news you've been waiting for: the latest rumor is that Insomniac is just about ready to lift the veil on a new Ratchet and Clank entry.

As PlayStation Lifestyle reports, a supposed "unnamed source at Insomniac Games" has confirmed that a new entry in the well-received action/platforming series is just about ready to be revealed. We only know that it might be called Ratchet and Clank Future: ACIT , and we're certain that "ACIT" stands for something…not sure what, though. We also don't know if this is a game that will be made for the PSN (like Quest for Booty ), or if it'll be a full title for the Blu-Ray disc format. There's further evidence in the form of the Ratchet and Clank Future Weapon Design Contest, and James Stevenson made the following comment over at the official PlayStation blog:

"There will be runner-up prizes. Can’t reveal anything about the prize yet. Stay tuned to the PlayStation Blog and http://www.ratchetandclank.com we’ll reveal the contest rules and prizes and much more next week."

No point in having such a contest without the game! We just have to assume that the new R&C will be revealed soon, although we may have to wait as long as E3 in the first week of June. There was little chance that Insomniac would abandon such a lucrative series, anyway, so it's not going to come as any huge surprise. Still, it's good to know.

I can't wait to see the next R.Y.N.O. The designers of the R.Y.N.O. 4 were locked away for creating such a ridiculously overpowered weapon.

It also wasted ammo like you wouldn't believe.

I freaking love Ratchet and Clank. I CAN NOT WAIT for the next one this fall. Iirc, they usually announce R&C games at E3 though, so the announcement might be far away.

That cliffhanger is hanging me…….what will happen to Clank? Will he become an enemy when Ratchet found him?

I hope they make another one of these and Naughty Dog should make another Jak game, when they're done with Uncharted 2.

Also, Ubisoft needs to make another Ghost Recon….

ACIT: A Clank In Time?

Kind of fits in w/ the 'Future' part of the title.

They were talking about releasing a new R&C game this fall and perhaps we'll see it at E3. I've beaten both Tool Of Destruction and Quest For Booty and I expect ACIT to be another great game in the series.

Can't wait.

Now if only Sucker Punch brings back Sly Cooper.

Also, another Jak and Daxter would be nice Naughty Dog.

Yawn, yawn, yawn!

Very tired of the R&C franchise. Not against anyone who's not, mind you, but like Orvisman, I'd do a cartwheel through the courthouse if Jak & Dexter returned to its rightful place: on a SONY console.

IMHO, the J & D series was better paced, the setup was more compelling, and it was a helluva lot funnier, which, as you may already know, matters to me. Just my $0.02!
