The arms race continues. After multiple acquisitions of studios made by Microsoft in recent months, Sony is getting in on the action too. And the Japanese giant has secured the services of the studio behind one of the biggest successes in its history.

Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that it has reached an agreement that will lead to the acquisition of Insomniac Games. The amount spent by Sony to buy the studio was not disclosed.

A long-time partner of the Japanese manufacturer, the Californian studio founded by Ted Price was more recently behind Marvel’s Spider-Man, a title that was very successful.

This acquisition makes Insomniac Games the 14th studio of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios. Over time, Insomniac Games has developed many games for PlayStation consoles such as the original Spyro The Dragon , the Ratchet & Clank series and the Resistance trilogy.

In the latest news, Insomniac is working on Stormland, an FPS in virtual reality. Given the success of Marvel’s Spider-Man, it’s a safe bet that his suite will be started sooner rather than later.
