Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (via a French Press Release that hurts our brains to read) have announced a new PS3 Ratchet & Clank game is in development at Insomniac. It is titled Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time. The game is currently set for a “Fall 2009” release date.

As the names hints, the new game adopts some time travel elements, with the evil Dr Nefarious causing Ratchet to disappear. His disappearance comes shortly after the events that happened in both Tools of Destruction and the downloadbale Quest for Booty.

Furthermore, Sony boast the new game has new gameplay elements that benefit from taking place in outer space, with reportedly more parts of the solar system available to explore than ever beofre – with huge amounts of hidden objects and collectables to find.

Apparently all of this takes place with both new and old enemies fighting against the duo, as they fight back with brand new weapons and abilities that will be added to their arsenal.
