May's tepidly received Resistance: Burning Skies for the PlayStation Vita may be the last entry in Sony's shooter series for some time. Speaking to Official PlayStation Magazine UK, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe online producer Daniel Brooke explained he enjoyed working on Burning Skies, but no firm plans are in motion for future games.
“The Resistance franchise has been exciting to work on, but as for the future, we have no definitive plans," he said.
In January, Resistance series creator Insomniac Games said it was finished building new entries in the franchise. Company CEO Ted Price bluntly stated, "We won't be making any more Resistances." The studio is now at work on the class-based shooter Overstrike and the Facebook game Outernauts.
The Resistance series was born in 2006 with Insomniac's Resistance: Fall of Man for the PlayStation 3. That game was followed by Resistance 2 in 2008 for the same platform, and 2009's Resistance: Retribution for the PSP, which was developed by Sony Bend. Insomniac returned as developer for 2011's Resistance 3, and Nihilistic Software created Resistance: Burning Skies.
