Sony Gauging Interest For Third Resistance Title?
For a while now, most have just assumed that Insomniac would unveil the third entry in the critically acclaimed Resistance franchise.
And while that anticipation remains, we haven't seen an official announcement via press announcement and we keep wondering when Sony or the developer might finally lift the curtain. Well, based on a recent survey sent to PlayStation fans, we're wondering if Resistance 3 is indeed a reality or if the team is still testing the market waters. The question asks, "Do you think that there is a future version of Resistance, Resistance 3, being developed?" Now, Insomniac has alternated between the Ratchet and Clank and Resistance franchises for several years, typically releasing every new installment in each series during the holiday rush. Last year, for instance, we saw the excellent Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time and in 2010, we've been assuming that Resistance 3 has a good shot of landing in time for Christmas. Unfortunately, there's really no knowing what's going on based on this survey, although it could be interpreted as worrisome if it's viewed as a "gauging interest" question. Isn't a little late in the day to be asking that...?
We're still hoping the third Resistance drops soon; we may have to wait until E3 in June but it'll be worth that wait. This series remains a PSXE favorite and we still believe R2 never got the respect it deserved.
