So, Who's Gonna Make Resistance 4?

Illustration for article titled So, Whos Gonna Make emResistance 4/em?

Insomniac Games made Resistance: Fall of Man, Resistance 2, and Resistance 3. What about Resistance 4?


In an interview with website Gaming Union, Insomniac Games creative director Marcus Smith said, "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 linchpin within Insomniac. I think we're thriving and branching out in a lot of different directions."

Smith added that he could "definitely see" the series being handed off to another developer. Makes sense as the two spin-off titles, Resistance: Retribution and Resistance: Burning Skies, weren't developed by Insomniac.


Won't see much resistance from Insomniac from handing over the series. According to Smith, "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."

Paradox me

I'm kind of surprised that Resistance is even making it to a third entry to be honest, especially with two spin-offs. The original wasn't really bad, but it felt like a game that would ultimately be remembered as a launch title and nothing more.

Granted, I haven't played Resistance 2 (the first didn't leave me wanting more) so I don't know how much they've improved the series, but I did pick up Retribution and just couldn't get into it at all.

I would say I'd like to see a new IP from them after Resistance is finished, but Overstrike didn't impress. Kinda wish they were still doing Spyro. :(
