Developer Insomniac has teased there is one final Easter Egg to be found in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and many are assuming it’s the Insomniac Museum Easter Egg that has appeared in many of the previous Ratchet & Clank games. Sony gave a hint in a TikTok video that the egg is hidden somewhere in Zurkie’s Gastropub and this has set fans of the game off on a treasure hunt that’s yet to be solved.
What is the Ratchet & Clank Insomniac Museum?
The Insomniac Museum is a secret location within the Ratchet & Clank games. The museum usually looks like an office filled with interactive objects that give background about the game as well as behind-the-scenes secrets, like unfinished levels, content that was scrapped from the game, and even a look at developer tools. Many assumed there wasn’t a museum in Rift Apart, but the teaser seems to suggest players just haven’t found it yet.
A brief six-second teaser that focused on Zurkie’s Gastropub was originally posted by PlayStation on TikTok, but this was later deleted for an unknown reason. As such, Insomniac also deleted their Tweet that said “There’s an easter egg yet to be uncovered in #RatchetPS5. Will you be among the first to find it? Check out @PlayStation‘s latest TikTok for a hint!” Luckily, other fans like Twitter user @AGPS3 have archived the video so you can still take a look:

Insomniac Museums are usually very difficult to find. Accessing the museums in Going Commando and Up Your Arsenal required players to find the majority (or all) of the game’s collectibles or to stand in a certain location at a very specific time to access a teleporter. A Crack in Time tasked players with finding all collectibles and finishing the game, while the 2016 Ratchet and Clank reboot let players access the museum in Challenge Mode. If the Rift Apart museum also requires very specific actions, only the most persistent players will unlock its secret.
In other news, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will reportedly release earlier than usual due to the poor sales of call of Duty: Vanguard. Elsewhere, Dying Light 2 will not have cross-play at launch, although this may change after the game has been released.
