Is The Resistance Over? Sony Has No Definite Plans To Continue Series

Shooter Sony PSP PS Vita News Playstation 3 FPS

The Resistance series is being placed on the side after Resistance: Burning Skies producer Daniel Brooke revealed that Sony has decided not to continue the series in the near future in an interview with Official Playstation Magazine UK. This follows the decision from Insomniac Games to stop developing the main series, handing back the IP to Sony. The Resistance series contains three Playstation 3 games, which comprises the main trilogy and two portable spin-offs: Retribution for the PSP and Burning Skies for the Vita.

This is the quote from Brooke:

“The Resistance franchise has been exciting to work on but as for the future we have no definitive plans”

While the overall reaction of Burning Skies has been mixed and sale figures of Resistance 3 not reaching the heights Sony wanted it to reach, the series has reached a crossroad. The Resistance games have offered an excellent story with well-developed characters (with the exception of Burning Skies), fantastic and interesting gameplay and some beautiful visuals and soundtracks. However, it is also lost in the current over saturation of the first person shooter genre, most of which try not to be different that the current market leader. Hopefully Sony reinvests in the series with releases on both the Vita and the Playstation 4.

Capsule Computers have reviewed both Resistance 3 and Resistance: Burning Skies. Check them out to see our thoughts on the two games.

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!
