Insomniac Games was usually viewed as a first-party studio, even though they weren’t. They were a second party studio for Sony throughout most of the seventh generation of gaming, before going full-third party during the start of the eighth generation of gaming, making titles like Sunset Overdrive and Fuse for multiple platforms. However, it appears as if Sony has plans for them in the long run after they produced Marvel’s Spider-Man for the PS4 last year.
In a tweet published on August 19th, 2019, the official PlayStation account announced that Insomniac Games would be joining their roster of first-party studios, meaning that they would no longer be making third-party titles for other platforms.

This is terrible news for anyone who enjoys video games, mainly because Sony has been completely converged by the Social Justice agenda.
Many Centrists™ will attempt to argue that the agenda isn’t apparent or noticeable, but Sony’s censorship policies are specifically aimed at games featuring fan-service and ecchi content that used to be designed for straight males. Now those games are no longer allowed on Sony’s systems, nor any kind of content that disrupts the fragile sensibilities of third-wave feminists.
This is irrefutable.
Nevertheless, Sony didn’t exactly say what they were going to do with Insomniac Games, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they used them to revive the Resistance franchise, likely swapping out the lead male for a female or POC just to further anger normal gamers. It seems to be a tactic utilized by most major studios in gaming, comic books, and movies these days.
Of course, we have no idea what Insomniac Games will do for Sony at the moment, but I wouldn’t doubt it if a Marvel’s Spider-Man sequel was on the table or in the works.
