Ratchet and Clank Writer Departs Insomniac
TJ Fixman, writer of several Insomniac titles, including Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus, will be moving on from the developer in pursuit of other mediums.
On his blog, Fixman announced his departure, citing a desire to write more narratives beyond the world of video games.
“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,” Fixman said. “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.”
He won’t be leaving the franchise entirely though, as Fixman still plans on helping produce the ‘Ratchet and Clank’ animated feature, and promises that even though Insomniac has everything it needs to finish Into the Nexus, that he’ll still be around.
“For those of you who have supported me as a game writer, I hope you stick around and support me through the next phase of my career. At the risk of sounding cliché, I couldn’t do it without you,” Fixman added. “Thank you for the supportive tweets, the fan mail, and the encouraging feedback on the forums. It’s rare that writers earn such a loyal following, so know that I don’t take a single one of you for granted.”
