Todd Fixman has announced he is leaving Insomniac Games to focus on mediums other than gaming. In a blog post, the long-time Ratchet & Clank writer states his relationship with Insomniac will continue as he is a writer and producer for the Ratchet and Clank movie. Fixman will also help to “shepherd” the franchise “into the future world.”

“I can look at my time at Insomniac and feel like I’ve done what I set out to do there”, Fixman wrote, in part. “As for other mediums, I feel like I’m just getting started. 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.”

Todd Fixman joined Insomniac in 2007, and wrote nine games including the Ratchet & Clank Future series. Fixman said that feature screenwriting opportunities last year left his workload too great to keep the position at Insomniac, so he decided to become a full time free agent.
