It Has Been A Generation, It's Time, No?
Outside of a reboot, I wouldnt mind a console version of the two portable games.
That'd be great if they brought the portable games to console. I also wouldn't even mind if it was a remake, upscale or just them putting them on PS Now. I would love to replay through every game.
Any/all of the above are welcome!
Those poor employees at Bluepoint will get a burnout at this rate.
I'd be happy with a remaster of the original trilogy, or even just the first one, since it's my personal favorite.
Completely agree. Remaster the original games then I would follow up with a Resistance 4. One of my favourite games from the PS3 era. Would be well suited to an open world shooter.
Hell yes! Resistance series is one of my favourites on PS.
KZ2 warzone Resistance 2-Eight player co-op Best memories of online MP on ps3. To this day I don't understand the reasoning behind removing 8 player co-op from Resistance 3(that was the most played mode in resistance 2 if I am not mistaken) Sony really needs to create its own FPS that aren't chasing the battle royal or COD trends and instead be original like they were on ps3. Mag should be built from ground up for ps5 because that game was also ahead of its time along with warhawk and especially my favorite starhawk(starhawk and Resistance 3 were the worst funded games when it came to PR before and after launch and we're truly treated as after thoughts) Part of me wants to believe in the old sony but most of those legends have left. Uncle jack, shu demoted, Andrew house, kaz retired and even shawn left. Now I feel like we have corporate executives running playstation truly as a for profit business (I understand all business try to make a profit but shu yoshida himself once said not all exclusives are meant to turn profit but they have grow the brand and diversity) now it's all about the bottom line and it wouldn't surprise me if there are far less new IP's this generation
MAG... that was a blast to play. If ever there was a game primed for a resurgence it should be that one.
I wish they would revisit this IP. Resistance 2 kind of lost its way, but three was amazing and too many people slept on that entry.
They should make the trilogy remaster. The R2 mutliplayer co-op with teams of 6 was great. R1 campaign and R3 campaigh was great. The game got a cool universe, weapons and Insmoniac should bring it back. Still remember how impressed i was when i bought Resistance 1 for the Playstation 3. It looked and sounded really next gen.
If Uncharted ND collection can get a remaster before the 4th game... why cant Resistance trilogy? And they could release it as a way to gauge interest in a 4th entry.
Insomniac’s been teasing something of the like on their Twitter every now and then for a while now
I had Resistance Fall of Man on the PS3 launch day. It was a great concept and good storyline. I know there were issues with where the story went in the sequel games so yeah a reboot would be good. I've had both a Playstation and Xbox console each generation since Xbox 360 / PS3. My main console has always been Xbox a lot of that being down to having a more comfortable controller. However nobody can deny Sony has always been in a stronger posisiton when it came to first party IPs. Given the development time of games and the amount of new developers Microsoft have created as well as purchasing developers I hope that Xbox will be able to not only continue with the strong IPs from the studios they've aquired but also given the resoruces the developers have available to them as part of being apart of Microsoft I hope they're able to produce some new interesting IPs. Obsidion and not Bethesda are the two that really interest me going forward as both have been able to produce some fantastic games. Given that they annoucned Avowed before they announced they were in talks to purchase Zenimax and so would then own Elder Scrolls I hope Obsidion are allowed to continue with the new IP and show Microsoft isn't just checking off boxes when it comes to just havin one game in each genre and no more. Also if there was an IP I would like Sony revive it's The Getaway.
Unfortunately I feel like Resistance is too associated with the PS3/very early PS4 era of IP that Sony has moved on from. When you look at IP active in that era that are still alive today, it's largely either IP that were established before PS3 (Gran Turismo, God of War) or Naughty Dog games (Uncharted, Last of Us). I don't think we are going to see Killzone, Motorstorm, Infamous, or Resistance again, as much as I hate to say it. It's a shame too, because I think Resistance 3 specifically was ahead of the curve on the single player focused fps that Bethesda-owned devs focused on a lot this past gen with games like Doom and Wolfenstein. With those games out of the PS ecosystem in the future, it would be good to have a first-party game in that vein again.
I totally get what you are saying because they managed to release all three games within the same platform generation, but other big franchises did the same and transcended into next gen just fine. Gears had 4 games on the 360 and managed to keep the series going into the next. Resistance can do the same if IG and Sony decide that the time is right. and right now they got their hands full on the new R&C so maybe after that they will consider bringing it back. If anything they can at least remaster the trilogy like Uncharted did and then make a 4th game if they see there is interest (which there is, they know there is).
It's not about the fact that all 3 games happened to be on PS3. It's the fact that, for various reasons including poor advertising and bad consumer decision making, the new Sony IP from that era just didn't sell like they deserved to sell. Uncharted was an exception of course, which is why it got a fourth game. Also, Gears of War didn't have this problem. MS advertised it very well, and although it has fallen far from that perception today, there was a time when it was one of the premiere multiplayer titles alongside the likes of Halo and COD. Honestly, I think the most likely option, and probably the best case scenario, would be a sort of Semi-reboot like God of War. Something that ties into the old games so that old fans are happy, but that doesn't alienate PS5 owners who have never heard of Resistance. I'd love to be wrong though, because I would love a remaster/remake of the trilogy, especially if it included some retooling of 2 to make it feel more like 1 and 3.
Resistance 2 multiplayer was wild back in the day!
Would love to revisit this series!
A reboot by Insomniac would be a dream. It would also be awesome if ND or Guerilla games handled the reboot.
Insomniac should take what they learned from stormland tie it into resistance and make a full fledged vr game with single and multiplayer.
I think it’s time for a Sony FPS for sure. I want weirder than resistance or killzone though. They are alright but I want something new. Xbox has become home to id and other FPS centric games. Sony just needs one good one, one that stands out. Resistance ain’t it imo.
Agreed. I'm a massive ps fan but they need something other than resistance. I'd still take a res4 if they made it. But rather KILLZONE or something completely new.. Funny thing is I remember reading ages ago, guerilla games moved to a new location in Amsterdam. Split team into 3. So must be working on something other than horizon. Can't wait to see what it is.
I've never tried a resistance game, but I'd probably check it out if a reboot or remaster came out.
it's perfect now that they own insomniac
I'd rather have a Resistance 4 then a straight up reboot throw together a hd remaster collection pack to help build up the hype of Resistance 4.
i'll pass. Didn't like the trilogy
I didn’t like Resistance. I’d rather they revived Killzone!
I think that was already discussed in the Shadowfall article the other day. Lots of people would like to see a proper 4th entry in the series so it all stems from what these devs have on their plate in terms of new vs existing ideas.
Why though ? Playstation got a long list of great exclusives.But the Resistance games don't belong on that list. Shouldn't revive just because we haven't seen Resistance in x amount of years. There's a reason for that, they weren't that popular to begin with.
“ Shouldn't revive just because we haven't seen Resistance in x amount of years. There's a reason for that, they weren't that popular to begin with.” By that logic neither was Bloodborne or Metroid. Meanwhile Leisure Suit Larry is a goat simply because he gets sequels? Nah. Don’t know anyone that’s ever admitted to buying ‘wet dreams don’t dry ‘.
Bloodborne is one standalone title. And it's a title I'd say was popular and critically acclaimed. And Metroid ? Really ? That's a huge title from Nintendo that has been around for ages and delivered many good games. Very poor examples you gave here and you manage to drag in the dumpster fire Leisure Suit Larry games that hasn't been relevant since the 80's-early 90's. Resistance series probably had its fanbase for sure, but it's not anywhere near the likes Bloodborne, Metroid or any of the other good exclusives that we've seen on Playstation. And Sony knows this, that's why a generic alien fps game isn't something they will focus on
Can’t dismiss the Larrys that spawned in the 2000s just because they weren’t from the 90s. Box office bust, Magna cum Laude, Reloaded etc. It’s been ages since the last Metroid. That’s the point. Resistance was a much newer IP that still managed to hit five games before its hiatus. Sony didn’t own Insomniac and had no say in some of the IP they created such as Fuse and Sunset. Now they do. Time wasted on those dead games can now be put to better use. Look at Ratchet. First non-remake, new entry since PS3. Who knows.
What a crap series. I personally would rather see sony focus on socom.
This is a classic example of a game being overhyped simply because it was exclusive. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad - but it also wasn't great. Funnily enough I actually rate the second (unlike most here) as being one of the most ambitious titles of that era. My view is that if Sony were to continue it, they should move it to a different developer. Insomniac are great at making fun games.. they have an almost exemplary record. But gritty first person shooters with a serious story is not their thing and it showed. They should focus on doing what they do best.
I adored the Resistance series and would love a new game.
Love Resistance. Especially the first one. It was really good the mystery. Who exactly where these Chimera and what exactly are they up to?, why Nathan?. I loved how desperate the fight was. I love the real dread I had in some of the solo missions. I loved the 60 plus solder assault missions. Then there are the weapons.
I would settle for a remake or remaster of the games for the PS5.
Any kind of new game in the series would be lit.
