Shawn Layden, formand for Sony Interactive Entertainment WorldWideStudios, forklarede efterfølgende i forbindelse med annonceringen:

“Insomniac Games is one of the most highly-acclaimed development studios in the industry and their legacy of best-in-class storytelling and gameplay is unparalleled. We have enjoyed a strong collaborative partnership with the studio for many years, and are thrilled to officially welcome them to the Worldwide Studios family. The addition of Insomniac Games to SIE WWS reiterates our commitment to developing world-class gaming experiences that can only be found on the PlayStation platform”

Ted Price, Insomniac Games founder og CEO, tilføjede:

”Joining the WWS family gives Insomniac even greater opportunities to achieve our studio vision of making positive and lasting impressions on people’s lives. We’ve enjoyed a special relationship with PlayStation practically since our inception. Our partnership amplifies our potential, and Marvel’s Spider-Man was a testament to this. We’re excited to take the next step in our growth alongside our longtime WWS partners. Most of all, we look forward to delivering fresh, new experiences for our fans”

Forud for opkøbet har Sony haft et langvarigt samarbejde til denne udvikler gennem franchises som Spyro the Dragon, Ratchet & Clank og Resistance. Den massive succes, Marvel’s Spider-Man havde, lanceret for ca. et år siden eksklusivt på PlayStation 4, må uden tvivl bidrage til en del af beslutningen for opkøbet.

Faktisk afslørede pressemeddelelsen også Marvel's Spider-Man nu har solgt over 13,2 millioner enheder globalt pr. 28. juli.

En efterfølger til Spider-Man er allerede garanteret til glæde for de mange fans.

De finansielle aspekter for transaktionen oplyses ikke på grund af hvad der omtales som ”kontraktlige forpligtelser”
