    Insomniac confirms it won't make more Resistance games

    Developer moves on from PlayStation exclusive shooter series.

    Insomniac has confirmed it will not make any more Resistance games.

    Insomniac boss Ted Price told VG247, "We won't be making any more Resistances."

    Price's comments confirm the suggestion that Insomniac - now working on Overstrike for EA and smaller games for its new Insomniac Click division - was done with the PlayStation exclusive shooter series following comments from creative director Marcus Smith in August last year.

    "I loved the Spyro the Dragon series when [Insomniac] did that. I didn't work there at the time, and I was bummed when they didn't work on the fourth game, but ultimately, I think it was healthy for them to move on. I think that's what we're seeing here," Smith said at the time.

    "We've done Resistance 3 and we're really into it and proud of it, but we're not currently slated to do a Resistance 4. So it would be hard to say it's any kind of lynchpin within Insomniac. I think we're thriving and branching out in a lot of different directions."

    He added: ""We've got a lot of different places for the universe to go, so I could certainly see the series going to another developer. I'm sure Sony would want to find a high calibre developer to do a good offering. I don't think they'd hand the franchise over to somebody who is going to screw it up."

    "We recognise we have a very loyal fanbase among Sony players, and we love them," Price told Eurogamer at E3 2011 in June.

    "We're definitely dedicated to them. However, we've always wanted to reach out to an even broader audience. The Xbox 360 audience has been a viable, vibrant audience for a long time. This was just a chance to do that."

    Insomniac has been a PlayStation-exclusive developer for 15 years. Overstrike, due out on Xbox 360 as well as PlayStation 3, is its first multiplatform game.

    Nihilistic is creating a Resistance Vita game. Sony Bend made Resistance Retribution on PSP. Which studio will Sony task with creating Resistance 4, should it decide to do so?

    Resistance 3 sold 180,000 units during its first month on sale in the US, according to NPD.

    That was a significant drop-off compared to Resistance 2's 385,000 first month total back in November 2008. Resistance 2 went on to sell around three million copies worldwide.

    Resistance 3, which picked up a healthy 8/10 from Eurogamer on release, debuted at number four in the UK charts in September, behind Dead Island and Warhammer 40K: Space Marine. It entered the US monthly chart at number seven, behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Dead Island and Gears of War 3.
    I haven't played the 3rd game in the series yet, i found the previous 2 to be nothing special.

    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.
    Live and die on this day.
    Live and die on this day.

    Hardly surprising since they went multiplatform. As I expected though, they are making horrible choices - and there games have lost something (R&C: All for One was, IMO, there worst title to date and there multiplatform one doesnt look that great to me.) since they did

    Also didnt they say something like this after Resistance 3 released? O.o

    Yeah I think so, something about letting another developer take up the resistance franchise

    Personally, I was never that into Resistance, so this means very little to me. On the other hand, this (and the poor reception of the last R&C) should pave the way for some exciting new IPs from Insomniac Overstrike for one looks interesting

    Shame, loved every Resistance game... even Retribution on PSP was cool.

    Overstrike looks lame

    i'm okay with it. they left it on a good note, R3 was one of the best shooters IMO, it had a ****ing health bar and weapon wheel for cryin out loud.


    Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating

    Their Resistance team is going o make multiplatform games from now on, but their R&C team (from the PS1 days) will remain making platformers for SCE. Unless OverStrike does extremely poor, they're gonna get the best of both worlds by making both exclusives and multiplats now. They need to ditch R&C and make a new platformer IP though.

    Too bad. I liked the resistance series. I'm looking forward to Overstrike though.

    Insomniac said this already and that another developer would be taking it over when R3 released so I assumed everybody knew this. That being said I loved R3 so I'm hoping whoever takes over the Resistance series does a good job.

    The series was on a downward spiral, so not surprised. But Overstrike looks awesome.

    I haven't played Resistance 3 yet, but I have played the first two..so, without being an a-hole and spoiling it for me, does Resistance 3 end the series or is there some cliffhanger ending like in ****ty slasher horror movies?

    Never was a fan of Resistance, not saying they wasn't good, but not good enough for me to buy.
    Sadly I'm not to keen on Overstrike either, just looks like another Brink to me and I expect it to hit bargain prices quick
    But all in all, I always saw them as the "living in the shadow of ND" Dev tbh, ya know with Jak & Ratchet

    I agree. Spyro was better than R&C to me, but even then, Crash was better.

    What a shame, really. R3 is easily the best of the series, although the online could've used some bigger sized maps, more players and R2's coop. Still, it's good to know since the Resistance franchise pretty much ended in the 3rd.

    this series could have gotten better with each game but the frist one was awesome and i though the 2 game was pretty goood but it was missing the wow factors from the frist game i did not buy the 3 games so lest hope who ever makes the next game goes back to its roots long live Resistance fall of man its the best launch game

    You didn't miss much not getting 3 coolguy. It was the worst of the 3. But everyone should at least play R1 if they haven't. That one is great.

    Subjective, Resistance 3 was toted as the best in the series, a "greatest hits" of what made the first 2 great. We got a stella looking game, health pick ups, weapon wheel and more.

    Yup, and best of the series. I wish I would have kept mine. I might trade in R3 for it.

    This is kind of tough news. I really enjoyed 3 so much. 2 was meh but they completely stepped up their game for what seems like the finale of the series. At least they went out on a bang. I loved every minute of that game.

    Damn
    I love Resistance. R1 & R2 mostly.
    R3 was the best game to play IMO but had pretty much nothing to do with the first two storywise (Which was one of the best parts of the originals), I couldn't give a flying **** about Capelli's family. I wanted some "Pure Chimera" to arrive and wreak havoc etc...

    As Nick Scryer mentioned, Resistance 3 sort of had an independent story. It didn't really focus on the plot threads and lore that was emphasized so much in the first two games, which I found to be slightly disappointing. It did to a degree, but the story is more of a personal journey for Capelli, which was well done.

    And to finally answer your question, R3 does have a satisfying ending and there are no cliff-hangers, but it does not end everything.
