The end of the gameplay demo ends by showing the new female Lombax previously teased, although we're no closer to finding out how she'll be incorporated into the story.

Following the debut of the trailer, developer Insomniac Games also confirmed this would be, timeline wise, an “extension” to Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus released back in 2013. 

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart will release on PlayStation 5 within the “launch window” - with an exact release date yet to be revealed.
