Insomniac Games is Done with Resistance

Don't expect any more Resistance titles from the franchise's creators.

The makers of Resistance, Insomniac Games, are officially calling it quits with the shooter franchise, reports VG247.

During an interview with the website, Insomniac CEO Ted Price said “We won’t be making any more Resistances.” You can’t really read that any other way, can you?

With that said, this doesn’t signal the end of the Resistance franchise. It just means that Insomniac won’t be tackling any more games set in the universe. What could wind up happening is the franchise could get passed to another developer to pick up the torch and run with it. We’ve already seen a few Resistance titles developed outside Insomniac, including 2009’s Resistance: Retribution for the PSP and the upcoming Resistance: Burning Skis for Vita.

All things considered, at least Insomniac went out on top with Resistance 3 — the best game in the series if you ask me. Its grounded, humanized story was a nice end cap to Insomniac's trilogy.

While the future of the Resistance franchise remains foggy, chances are good we’ll be seeing Chimera again not before too long. The game just won’t have the Insomniac seal of quality on the box.
