Online Support For Resistance Franchise Ends On April 8
Say goodbye to several of the most entertaining online experiences of the previous generation.
Sony is ending online support for the entire Resistance series on April 8. This means that within the next few days, you will no longer be able to enjoy online multiplayer fun with Resistance: Fall of Man, Resistance 2, or Resistance 3.
Insomniac said on Twitter that it wasn't their decision; Sony controls the servers:
"There are a large variety of reasons why they have to shut down. Sony makes that call though, not us. They maintain online."
As for whether or not online support for the Vita title, Resistance: Burning Skies, will end, the developer says they don't know. That one might stick around for a little longer. I just wish Insomniac would make another Resistance title because really, that was my favorite FPS franchise of the PS3 generation. Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 were great, but I just found the Resistance games to be...I don't know, more fun, I guess.
Also, don't forget that Resistance 2 was one of the very first console titles to offer 64-player action online. That was nuts.
