Insomniac Games is notorious for creating some of the best video games. Creators of Spyro the Dragon, Ratchet and Clank, and more the studio has amassed a large fanbase. With Spider-Man PS4 on the horizon, some fans are looking to the future about maybe a new Resistance game. While the studio concluded the franchise in Resistance 3 and CEO Ted Price confirmed the studio’s departure from the franchise many are hoping for Insomniac to return to it. Unfortunately, there are no plans to do so.

In a conversation with Finder, Community Director James Steveson asked about the possibility of Insomanic making a return to the series.

“Oh wow, if I was a betting man? It feels like it’s a longshot to me. But I have learned over the years to never say never. I think there are a lot of people out there that have fond memories of a Resistance game from the PS3 era, but yeah, never say never, it’s just that we have no plans to make another Resistance game in the future.”

Stevenson was then asked whether or not he thought there was a chance for another developer to take over the Resistance franchise.

“I’m not sure. Obviously other developers made the portable versions for the PSP [2009’s Resistance: Retribution by Bend Studio] and Vita [2012’s Resistance: Burning Skies by nStigate Games] back in the day. It’s actually Sony that owns the IP and owns that universe. So I guess if they were really passionate about making Resistance 4 and we couldn’t or didn’t want to do it, Sony could totally engage another developer. But that would be up to Sony, not us.”

Currently, Sony has made no intention to remaster the franchise for the PS4 although a trilogy collection was released for the PS3. As a long time fan of the series it would be nice to see Resistance return as the final installment didn’t answer a lot of questions.
