Ratchet & Clank: NEXUS was a proposed sequel to Up Your Arsenal and was meant to continue the story. It was cancelled in 2006, with many of its ideas incorporated into Ratchet: Deadlocked/Gladiator.

Ratchet nexus

Not to be confused with the other Nexus.


The game was to be centered on one planet, with our heroes caught in the middle of a war between two alien races. Ratchet and Clank would have differing views on the conflict, creating their own tension.

Why It Was Cancelled

The Insomniac Games team felt that the project was too confined to just one planet, so they substituted for a hub world and multiple planets.


The concept of one planet was later used in All 4 One.
