Ratchet: Deadlocked HD coming to PlayStation Network this year

Ratchet: Deadlocked HD coming to PlayStation Network later this year.

Another Ratchet & Clank game is getting a high-definition upgrade this year, the tenth anniversary of the action platformer franchise. Insomniac Games announced at PAX today that the fourth game in the series, Ratchet: Deadlocked for the PlayStation 2, will come to PlayStation Network later this year.

Development on Ratchet: Deadlocked HD will be handled by Idol Minds, the studio responsible for the recently released Ratchet & Clank Collection. The high definition collection bundled the first three PS2 games — Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal — on a single disc. Deadlocked HD will be a downloadable title only, said Insomniac's James Stevenson.

Ratchet: Deadlocked was originally released in 2005. The game placed a greater emphasis on gunplay and focused solely on Ratchet, giving his sidekick Clank a little downtime.
