What we heard: Last week, the entirely off-the-radar site Surfer Girl Reviews Star Wars claimed to have landed the first exclusive details and screenshots of Ubisoft's next undertaking in the Prince of Persia franchise (see the preceding Rumor Control post). Though Ubisoft issued a stern "no comment" on the information, the albeit blurry screens and likely plot points made for a compelling argument.

Following up that rumor, Surfer Girl has again landed allegedly exclusive leaked info in the form of the "first-ever Resistance: Fall of Man 2 details." "Tentatively" slated for November 2008, "the game takes place entirely in the United States, where someone who may or may not be Sgt. Nathan Hale (who plays a role in the story) has to deal with the Chimeran invasion of the US in such places as San Francisco and Chicago," she claims. Surfer Girl also states that the game will have "a cliffhanger ending that sets up for a third title. Vehicles will be included in multiplayer this time around, [and] one will be able to take to the sky with three new vehicles or boogie it down on the ground with the three vehicles from the first game's campaign."

While the blog post didn't mention the information's source, Surfer Girl told GameSpot that the information came from a "source with a connection with Insomniac." However, she wouldn't elaborate on said source's identity or give any more details about Resistance 2. "I don't want to ruin a title a year before it comes out," she said. However, the leak has apparently attracted a torrent of interest from Resistance's developer. "In the course of an hour, Insomniac Games' network viewed the Resistance post 83 times," claimed Surfer Girl.

The official story: "We have not made any announcements in regards to the Resistance franchise. Anything you are reading is speculation and rumor." --A Sony representative.

Bogus or not bogus?: With nearly 700,000 copies sold in the US alone and a less-than-conclusive ending, Resistance will almost certainly get a sequel. A November release date also seems likely, considering the first game arrived during the same month--which is the center of the all-important holiday shopping season. Also, the approximately two-year development cycle seems about right, considering the original Resistance debuted at the 2005 Electronic Entertainment Expo.

I have no doubt that a sequel is in the works, which will likely come out next November but I highly doubt it will be called Resistance: Fall of Man 2.

Hmm....i dout that its gonna come out in '08 cause if they wanted to get it out by next Chirstmass, they would have at least showed us some Concept Art, but they are denying it that means they most likey have an idea but its still very early stages and they dont have a clear idea dont get me wrong, i would like to see a sequal but it aint gonna be for a while

"Romanticide I mean, the only reason it got any attention is because it was the only FPS on the Ps3...>_>" Hes totally right. It wasn't that good anyways.

resistance is awesome but defo needs a revamp if they bring 2nd out something special to come from a sequel (to keep you interested other wise it will just be like adding another map pack)

It's a great news, I love the first one. Both single player story or the muti-players are so much fun to play. I just hope this time they'll make co-op online not just splite screen. It'd be really nice to play with friends on co-op.
