Ratchet And Clank Writer T.J. Fixman Leaves Insomniac Games

Longtime Ratchet And Clank writer Todd ‘T.J.’ Fixman has quit Insomniac Games.

In a blog post, Fixman said he was leaving the company to focus on mediums other than gaming.

While Todd Fixman is leaving Insomniac Games, he will continue to work with the company on the upcoming Ratchet and Clank movie. The live-animation flick is set to debut in 2015.

T.J. Fixman joined Insomniac Games in 2007 and worked his way up to senior writer at the gaming studio. During his time as senior writer, Fixman worked on all of the Ratchet and Clank Future series, All 4 One, Full Frontal Assault, and several other titles.

Recently, the gaming writer was offered several screenwriting opportunities, which he says would have gotten in way of his Insomniac Games focus.

On his blog, Todd Fixman writes:

“I can look at my time at Insomniac and feel like I’ve done what I set out to do there. As for other mediums, I feel like I’m just getting started. I’m excited by movies and television. I want to get back into graphic novel writing. I want to develop different projects with new characters and stories and worlds I can explore. Right now I have the opportunity to try all of it, and when you’re handed a gift like that, you have to grab onto it with both hands.”

Fans of the authors work will still see his writing touch on the Insomniac Games’ newest title Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus. The new game is due out for the PS3 sometime before the holidays.

At this time, Fixman has not said what other projects he is actively working on or hopes to work with in the near future.

Will Ratchet and Clank still be the same without the voice of its author?
