Insomniac: Another Developer May Get Resistance 4
Insomniac is one hell of a developer. Can you imagine if another team picked up the Resistance franchise...?
First, the studio's creative director, Marcus Smith, said another developer could potentially handle the creation of Resistance 4. But in speaking to VideoGamer, Insomniac writer Jon Paquette said he'd rather keep Resistance in-house although ultimately, it'd be Sony's decision. Said Paquette:
"There are a lot of great developers out there. There are a lot of great shooter developers, and I'm sure there are a lot of people who would love to get their hands on Resistance because it's such a fun universe to create. I think Resistance is a fun place to play, with all the weapons, all the Chimera - it's a really great universe for games, because there are so many options."
Sony owns the IP so if they want to give Resistance to someone else, they could. But if they do, Paquette added that he'd like "have a lot of meetings" with the chosen developer, because as a writer, he knows a lot of the back story that shouldn't go ignored.
Resistance 3 will be on store shelves in less than two weeks, and it'll be interesting to see the critical and gamer reception. But if the series ended up going elsewhere, what studio would you like to see at the helm? Resistance has such a singular flair when it comes to shooters; we're worried that only Insomniac can maintain that style...
