Electronic Arts explains E3 absence.

Last year, EA and Insomniac Games announced Overstrike, a new IP from the Ratchet & Clank and Resistance developer, to be in production for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. We haven’t heard more since its initial reveal, and it was absent at this year’s E3. If EA labels president Frank Gibeau is anyone to go by, however, it will be shown later this summer.

“We’re very excited about Overstrike“, Gibeau told CVG at E3. “It’s a new IP and we want to make it the right game, so they’re taking some extra time to nail the gameplay and the quality.

“It felt like we would stand out better later in the summer once we’ve hit some key milestones and we’re able to show off more,” he said.

EA has also said it plans to show two new Wii U games this summer.

          @FinalFantasy_fangirl: You should play like Ratchet HD Collection before Overstrike comes out. That’s what should be your first Insomniac title. :p

          EDIT: Oh, unless you don’t have a PS3 or something. And then I guess Overstrike will be your first Insomniac title.

            @FearMonkey:

            Let me explain Overstrike is the first game I want from Insomniac I the like the characters. I’ve tried R&C Im just not into it but I do like Jak!

    I was disappointed this wasn’t shown at the EA e3 conference.

    Glad to see things are still progressing in terms of development.

      @Zero: Ditto, you beat me to posting it. It’s probably the game I’m most looking forward to from EA, so it was a bummer not seeing it there.

    Meh. So tired of pew pew pew this gen.

    I like insomniac’s style, so I’m interested in seeing what they’re doing with this new IP :)

    Ratchet & Clank have always played 2nd fiddle to Jak & Daxter but of course Naughty Dog developed Jak & Daxter so what do you expect?
