Ratchet & Clank Writer Leaves Insomniac Games

by on July 22, 2013

Long time Ratchet & Clank writer TJ Fixman has revealed on his blog (via VG247) that he is leaving Insomniac Games after seven years and nine games at the studio.

Fixman stated that he was offered two film projects in very quick succession:

“Recently, I was offered a feature assignment at Disney, at which point thirteen-year-old TJ reached through a time vortex to high-five me and ask why I still wear the same Mighty Mighty Bosstones shirt. I knew at this point I had taken on too much work for any one person, but I was having trouble pulling the trigger. The studio meant a lot to me, and had been my second home ever since I came to LA looking to build a career as a screenwriter.

Then, as if fate had noticed I was having a difficult time leaping, my phone rang again. It was my manager, telling me I’d sold another script to New Line. Two projects, two days. And more projects rolling in. Now I’m tallying up hours in the day and figuring out how I’d be able to get my pages done on time, and it became immediately clear it was time to make the leap.”

However, he did say that he would help to “shepherd” the Ratchet & Clank movie he wrote and produced, and also mentioned the upcoming Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus game which is scheduled to be released
