One of this gaming generation's new properties, Resistance, is over as we know it. Despite being a solid performer for the Sony PlayStation 3, developer Insomniac Games has decided not to pursue any additional sequels and has moved on to other projects. VG247 has the details.
Whether you nearly drowned in a tidal wave of closure during Resistance 3′s credits or still – to this very day – spend long, cold nights yearning for the embrace of more guns, one thing’s absolutely certain: Insomniac’s finished with the Resistance franchise. “We won’t be making any more Resistances,” Insomniac CEO Ted Price told VG247 during an interview at Southern Methodist University’s Game::Business::Law Summit today. Short, sweet, and to the point.
While Insomniac is done with Resistance, it doesn't mean that we've seen the last of it. A handheld installment for the PlayStation Vita, Resistance: Burning Skies, is in the works from Nihilistic Software. As for a proper Resistance 4, there's always the possibility that another developer could take a shot at the property under Insomniac's guidance. While it's always sad to see a developer step away from a property that it created, perhaps it's for the best. If Insomniac feels that it's said all it has to say with Resistance, it's best to let it go than for it to stagger on in a series of watered down, half-hearted sequels. On the other hand, if Insomniac ever declares that it's done with Ratchet & Clank, I think we'll have to sit the company down and convince it to reconsider.
