Insomniac Games are no longer the flagship developer of the Resistance series after they have decided that they were finished with the franchise. With confusion and speculation surrounding the decision, it was up to CEO Ted Price to clear some things up. Below is a video message, posted on Insomniac’s Youtube channel, explaining the decision to move on from the Resistance franchise. This video is meant to be an official confirmation of the decision to not continue developing for the franchise.

Mr. Price has revealed that they believed their Resistance tale has reached “it’s logical conclusion.” They are also excited to see the fruition of Resistance: Burning Skies by mentioning Nihilistic Software, the guys behind the game. He has also praised the fanbase for their support throughout the franchise. However, there is no mention of the Ratchet and Clank series in the video, another Sony owned franchise.

What does it mean for the Resistance franchise? More likely than not the console series will be passed onto another developer. Who will it be is anyone’s guess. Nonetheless, this shouldn’t been seen as a dire situation. Resistance is moving on, as are Insomniac is with their first multi-platform release, Overstrike.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
