Sony Interactive Entertainment have announced the release date of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, along with it being available for pre-order.
As previously reported, recurring villain Dr. Nefarious has obtained the Dimensionator; and in the ensuing battle becomes damaged. This begins to tear the fabric of reality apart; separating Ratchet and Clank. The pair now travel across worlds and dimensions, fighting off foes with an arsenal of sci-fi weapons.
The game has been delayed multiple times since its announcement. While originally slated for Holiday 2020 on PlayStation 5, the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and ensuing complications no doubt caused its delays.
The delays were almost swept under the rug however, in footnotes for trailers of upcoming PlayStation 5 games. The game was initially delayed to the first half of 2021, then to a wider berth of 2021. Now, the new pre-order teaser has confirmed the release date will be June 11th, 2021.
You can find that pre-order trailer below.
