Sony, Insomniac tease a return of heroes with space posters

Sony Computer Entertainment appears to be teasing a new title from Insomniac Games, if two posters from the PlayStation Twitter account are anything to go by.

Yesterday, Sony tweeted a poster with a purple outline of what appeared to be a planetary body, along with the tagline "When Worlds Collide."

A second teaser poster came today, and we now know that was a partial tagline. In today's image, which you can see in full below, the outline has been revealed as a round object emitting a purple blast of some kind — perhaps a spaceship's exhaust, or a galactic weapon. The tagline continues, "When Worlds Collide ... Heroes Return."

The PlayStation Twitter account tweeted the image and mentioned the Twitter account of Insomniac Games, the independent studio known for its Ratchet & Clank franchise and Resistance franchises. If the teasers are related to one of the developer's existing brands, the images' design — typeface, colors, space setting — suggest that it's more likely to be the former series. It's also possible that the images are teasing a crossover game involving something Insomniac has worked on.

Insomniac's most recent Ratchet & Clank title was Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, a platformer with tower defense elements that was released on PlayStation 3 in November 2012 and on PlayStation Vita this past May. The studio also released the futuristic shooter Fuse in May.
