The Resistance series looks to be on the back burner, six years after the debut of the first title in the series, Resistance: Fall of Man.
Sony has gone on the record to say there is currently no plans to continue the franchise beyond the last title released.
“The Resistance franchise has been exciting to work on but as for the future we have no definitive plans,” Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Online producer Daniel Brooke told OPM.
There have been five Resistance games in total, the last of which was Resistance: Burning Skies for PS Vita. None of the games have particularly set the gaming world on fire, however they did gather somewhat of a loyal following amongst a certain group of fans.
With series creators Insomniac now working on new franchises, it makes sense that the series is laid to rest while Sony concentrates on other franchises and its new IP’s.
Resistance may return one day, although that decision will come down to Sony.
