IGN - Earlier today, Insomniac Games, the studio that developed the likes of Spyro the Dragon, Ratchet & Clank and most recently Resistance, revealed that it would not be doing another Resistance game.
As 1 of the biggest "Resistance" fan, this has been a very "Sad Day" for me. Well, Good Luck to "Insomniac" with their future titles.
Well, this probably has to do with them and their partnership with EA... Man... I wish Insomniac would have left Sony with a bigger bang than R3 and R&C A41 Anyways, best of luck to them with overstrike and whatever new ideas they come up with... Just expect it to have some gun that makes us scratch our heads and say epic win at the same time Remember these commercials ? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
They're still making more R&C games.
This was inevitable, Sales are way too important to them & not the satisfaction that they made a wonderful game. I saw the End of this series, the day they went Multiplatform. Don't be surprised if Ratchet & Clank is cancelled next.
Uh keep telling yourself that. If Ratchet is cancelled, it's only because Insomniac are making a new series for Sony. Although I did see Resistance's end.
You do realize that there could be 100 new Ratchet and Resistance games as Sony not Insomniac owns the rights to these. This was one of the primary reasons why Insomniac went multiplatform. They wanted to own their own IP, and they wanted to sell to the broadest audience. Personally I think they are making a huge mistake, and it could be one that costs them dearly.
I'm really going to miss the resistance series, it was so good. Lets just hope that what they do next is just as good, if not better than ever.
there is a new Resistance title coming to the vita and its not being developed by Insomniac , just saying you know
Sony still has plenty of studios to fall back on. Resistance ,regardless of what some would say, was a generic shooter. There are plenty of other world class shooters to choose from.
Insomniac was never owned by Sony. They didn't really lose anything. This gen, Insomniac was put out few quality games. All Sony "lost" is future exclusive games from Insomniac.
All I have to say is this If Overstrike fails you Insomniac, don't go crying back to Sony, look at NT theory with HS and then they're MP game Enslaved....sales aren't everything you know, it's not like you were going to go out of business, Resistance 3 was still a fantastic game.
You make it sound like Insomniac decision was some kind of a slight to Sony and it's fans. At the end of the day it's a business decision. Bioware did it, Valve did it. It's business. Developing games has gotten a lot more expensive as everyone knows and when you know that there are other potential source of revenue you have to do what you have to do. Insomniac never left Sony. They just went multiplat. They can again decide to go exclusive with Sony.
I'm anticipating future hate from fake fans. If you(generally speaking) were truly a fan of Insomniac, you would wish them the best and continue to support them during high times as well as low times. As history have shown, not every Insomniac game is going to be golden. R2 was a good game, but in many peoples opinion, didn't live up to R1. Now imagine if Insomniac went multiplatform during that year, and R2 as we know it was their first multiplatform game. I'm sure the hate would spew out of control. If Overstrike turns out to be an average game, I wouldn't be surprise. In addition, I'm not going to blame it on their decision to go multiplatform. In my opinion, had Overstrike been a PS3 exclusive, it would have still remained the same game at it's core.
Has anyone really payed attention to Overstrike? It looks like a copy past job from Ratchet & Clank weapons. I'm sure some will disagree but check out the Overstrike videos then compare to all the R&C games, it is the same stuff with a new skin. I will surely be passing on Overstrike.
I can't find any gameplay vids. Got a link?
I say good luck to Insomniac. I for one are grateful for all the things they done for Sony and and sure Sony feels the same. I wonder what this all means for the Ratchet and Clank series?
I can't wait to see what they do next! I personally think Resistance 3 is the best game they've ever made. The campaign, at least. I didn't touch the multi-player, outside of the beta. I did absolutely love the beta though. :) It's just that I've never felt the narrative in Insomniac games matched the quality of the gameplay. In Resistance 3, they were both phenomenal. I'd love to see more of that. ;)
