Resistance 3 Could Be Insomniac’s Final Game in the FranchiseBy Alex Co | August 24, 2011 | News | No comments | Share
Insomniac has created and nurtured the Resistance franchise since the first game in the series way back in 2006, but it looks like things might be changing in the very near future.
In a recent interview with the Gaming Union, Insomniac’s creative director Marcus Smith admitted that the studio has not been tasked to do another Resistance game past Resistance 3. Smith likens it to what Insomniac did to the Spyro the Dragon franchise back in the PS1 days.
As far as Resistance being the flagship... I think Insomniac has always branched out. 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. 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.
Insomniac’s next game is Overstrike, a multiplatform game that will be published by Electronic Arts as part of their Partners Program.
Resistance 3 and what could be Insomniac’s final game in the series will hit stores on September 9th.
