Insomniac “Seriously Considered” Resistance 4, But Felt R3 “Closed a Major Chapter” in the Franchise

Explaining why we haven’t seen or heard anything about a new Resistance on consoles, Ted said that “we decided to bring Resistance to a conclusion when we looked ahead and realized that Resistance 4, while possible and something we seriously considered, wasn’t going to be the right game for us at that time.” (PS3, PS4, Resistance 3)

Whaaa?! I loved Resistance 3 (one of my favorite PS3 games) but it hardly wrapped things up.

Very true. Resistance 3 while a nice personal journey for Capelli, was just that. A personal journey. In the grand scheme of things, nothing changed. The status quo at the end of R3 remains the same. The planet is still the Chimera's. No progress on the gray matter front or the "other aliens" who fought the Chimera ages ago.

While the weather is improving and some pockets of resistance (no pun intended) are fighting back in the closing credits, there are still more questions than answers.

They'll be back when they'll realize that Fuse isn't the answer and next gen around the corner. "At the time" can mean anything. Maybe they just had a burnout or the time's about right now? Almost seems like they want back ;) I hope they'll bring it back - with a spring 2014 release on PS4? Come on Insomniac.

Also we never got to see the originals they were creating in R2 in that facility with Molokov.

the Resistance games were my favourite games this gen, its sad too see it end like this, i hope another dev picks it up! Same with the Jak games on the ps2, they were my fav but there hasnt been a game since! WHY ME ! WHYYYY !

With fleeting sales and interest in the franchise, they wanted to end off with some sort dignity.
Can you imagine another Resistance selling even less than its predecessor?

Good that they ended it off before it just faded into obscurity.

I dont want to be a dick.

But.... since Sony owns the rights to resistance they cant make it a multiplatform game. Which one of the reasons why they decided to produce a new IP instead of continuing an old one.

So? Doesn't mean Sony can't publish it again...

I would love another Resistance. It's still open! There is a ton to explore in that lore.

I really hope some day there will be a Resistance 4 game. I would at least set it 50 years later. This way humans can make huge advancements in technology from the Chimera tech. Plus this way you can bring in the real Chimera that was hinted to in the game. So this way humans would have a better chance at killing the new bad guys.

idk. personally, i didnt like resistance 3 much. felt like all you did was run away in the game, which kinda pissed me off. i enjoyed the previous entries alot more.

i do like joes idea about the series taking a leap 50 years forward, so much potential in all directions.
shivvy24  +   872d ago
yea as a huge resistance fan i liked 1 and 2 better ! i really liked the creepyness and story of R:FOM ! in R2 i liked the huge sceneries and battleships and epic feels of the campaign, my fav is the 8player co-op !

I'm not the one that complain about video game ending's but um R3 ending was weak what happened to the whole "Do you hear them, it's beautiful" thing with the gigantic planet in the background in R2
SonyStyled  +   872d ago
"can you hear them? they are talking to us. its beautiful". "im sorry sir, it was an honor". one of the most creepiest things ive expiriencxed this gen
L6RD7BLU3  +   872d ago
Yeah it was something like from what I said above ,but I don't know how Ted thinks that the story is concluded it's like hey the Chimera is all gone now It's time to rebuild the nation. IDK I believe the ending should have been better or something, hell make another trilogy if they have to.
NarooN  +   872d ago
I didn't care much for R3. The multiplayer was fun, but the campaign raised more questions than anything. All it really did was show us Joe's adventure and that was it. All the questions I had after R2's ending went unanswered.

They might as well make the next Resistance game take place in the future (of that universe). The weapons would be insane.
ssj27  +   872d ago
Well RESISTANCE 4 has huge potential .. they just need to make the resistance Universe feel big..
go deep into it and go with a more futuristic feeling..

Modern weapons and also more advanced alien weapons ..

Battles should go big Army battle of humans vs chimera kind of like resistance fom with a narrative.

Call it


end it by humans taking control of earth and chimera sending a new kind of more power alien.. and start R5 with that new big war with new crazy enemies biger and more advanced than ever.

Love Resistance 3 but Resistance need to be about humans vs aliens in big war scales

Resistance 3 was great. Did not like the ending at all though.
MidnytRain  +   872d ago
You ain't kiddin. That ending didn't "close" anything!
Although Capelli was alot more interesting and relatable & whatnot, I really wish we could get Nathan Hale back :/
Loved Nathan Hale and his sexy yellow eyes >_<

He's fulla crap...Resistance 3's sales, & probably Sony's lack of help marketing the series, as well as releasing giants like Killzone 3 at the same time, is the reason there is no more Resistance's.

I would like a Resistance 4 & would buy it immediately, if developed by Insomniac.

Insomniac went multiplat, thanks to the millions of dumbarse PS3 owners that ignored Resistance 3 & Ratchet:A Crack in Time, both of which were the greatest in there series (respectively).

The same fools ignored the stellar Starhawk, as well as the greatest car combat game & far best in series, Twisted Metal, & the list goes on of excellent AAA games that have gone largely ignored & sold dismally & therefore cost the developers the ultimate price, or worse, sent them to make games for the mobile IOS market.

I mean Zipper have gone, Zipper that made the phenomenal Socom 1 & 2,...... Zipper, the guys responsible for THE SINGLE BEST ONLINE SHOOTER ON CONSOLES EVER.....EVER........EVER. I honestly have had heaps of fun on several games online this gen, including the award winning COD series,..............but, simple fact remains, that I am yet to experience a game that feels as rewarding & awesome to play, as the 1st 2 Socom games on PS2.
I find this on 1 hand great, as it proves how great Socom truly is, but I also find it sad that NOBODY could expand upon what Zipper did all those years ago.....that sense of belonging to a tightknit team of SEALS or terrorists, that awesome feeling of working together so well, that it pays off in the end & you defeat the other team.
There were just so many variables & things that made the gameplay feel deep & complex, whilst the game was also accessable enough for a newcomer to pick it up & be playing well within the hour.
Now, Zipper are gone & lost forever, & I never see the Socom series capturing that magic again, & we shall just be riddled with the big, dumb, instant pick up & play, COD-esque type shooters. It's sad, but, watch what happens with PS4, 720 & Wii-U, & after 7yrs of these machines, I bet, even though I will attest to having a great time on several online shooters on PS4, I will still have that void of Socom-itus, I will still be saying how I never got an online experience that compares in any way to Socom. That feeling of being in a game that makes you feel so much apart of a team, & yet, at the same time, allows so much individual brilliance & Rambo-esque moments, where 1 of your team mates is the only 1 on your team, still alive, & he is up against 4 or 5 guys on the other team, & your watching him taking these guys out, 1 by 1, feeling every bit of tension & accomplishment, as he takes out the entire opposition force with clinical precision & at the end of the game when this guy has virtually won the round on his own, you actually feel awesome & are internally cheering & clapping this guys individual piece of brilliance, as if it was your own.
I just haven't EVER experienced a game that offers the same online brilliance, depth, simple-ness, sense of teamwork, yet individuality, & many other elements that just make it THE GREATEST EVER console online shooter.

I was expecting more closure from resistance 3, the ending was a major disappointment for me! But the gameplay and more of a survival game than it predecessor were really great!

Resistance 4 for the PS4, please Sony, and give it to Insomniac.
