Insomniac Games certainly aren’t shy when it comes to a challenge, with the studio revealing their plans to release an unprecedented five games in 2016 across PC and consoles, three of which are based in VR.
The aptly named studio (there’s no way their staff can be getting any sleep) detailed their four other games coming this year via a special media event held last week, sharing some details and footage of the upcoming projects.
Insomniac aren’t bearing the burden completely alone, with Oculus, GameStop and PlayStation all partnering up with the independent studio to publish the various games.
The three VR titles currently in development for the Oculus Rift are:
Despite the heavy focus on VR, Insomniac haven’t been neglecting more traditional games. Song of the Deep is a 2D Metroidvania-style adventure game about a young girl searching for her missing father in a vast ocean
The result of a partnership with video game retailer GameStop, Song of the Deep will be available to purchase from their stores as well as digitally on Xbox Live, PlayStation Store and Steam on 12 July.
An accompanying novel penned by Insomniac’s Chief Creative Officer, Brian Hastings, will be also be released soon, although so far it’ll only be available stateside in Barnes & Noble stores.
It definitely looks to be a busy year for Insomniac with all these games on the way. Let us know your thoughts on the studio's upcoming projects over in the forums.
Insomniac's bonkers Xbox One exclusive, Sunset Overdrive, is currently free for Xbox Live Gold members via the Games with Gold programme, so if this just isn't enough Insomniac for you, give it a download via the Xbox Store.
