In an interview with VG247, Insomniac Games head Ted Price revealed that makers of the core trilogy of Resistance shooters were officially finished with the franchise. The Resistance franchise, while critically lauded, has never struck enough of a chord on shelves, Insomniac’s last game in the series – Resistance 3 – having consistently sold fewer units than its direct prequel. Despite the figures, the franchise will live on with other studios. The Vita-bound Resistance: Burning Skies is currently being handled by Nihilistic Software (Conan, Playstation Move Heroes).
Sony insists that they still have a “working relationship” with the once Playstation-exclusive developer, while Insomniac is currently keeping both its upcoming multiplatform shooter Overstrike and its new social games division Insomniac Click under wraps for now.
Sad to see Insomniac move away from Resistance, EGs? Or we all amongst those who liked the game on paper, but never bought an actual copy? Give us your thoughts in the comments section!
