Insomniac has had a fairly good run developing the Resistance franchise, selling a respectable amount of copies for each title in the trilogy and attracting a solid fanbase. But that’s coming to an end–Insomniac says it’s done making Resistance games.
In a straight-to-the-point statement to VG247 at a recent summit held at Southern Methodist University, Insomniac CEO Ted Price firmly and plainly said that Insomniac “won’t be making any more Resistances”.
Following the news making the rounds, Insomniac released a video with Ted Price explaining Insomniac’s decision to move away from the Resistance franchise, and noting in the process that this isn’t the first time the developer has said that it intends to shift its focus elsewhere.
Don’t take this to mean that the Resistance franchise is done, however. Price explains that the series is now in the hands of Sony and developer Nihilistic, who is working on Resistance: Burning Skies for the PlayStation Vita.
“We believe that Resistance has reached its logical conclusion, in terms of the story we wanted to tell,” Price said. “However, that doesn’t mean the Resistance franchise isn’t continuing. It’s already in the capable hands of Nihilistic. And with Sony’s shepherding we know it will continue to live on and expand.”
