Insomniac drops Resistance

Overstrike developer won't be making any more entries in Sony-exclusive first-person shooter series, according to CEO Ted Price.


Insomniac is done with Resistance. Speaking with VG247 at Southern Methodist University's Game::Business::Law Summit, CEO Ted Price said the developer was finished working on Sony's exclusive first-person shooter series.

Insomniac has new pastures, without Chimera, ahead of it.

"We won't be making any more Resistances," Price said.

Insomniac departing the sci-fi shooter series was first hinted at in August. At the time, studio creative director Marcus Smith said the company was ready to branch out from the franchise and was not slated to make a follow-up to Resistance 3.

The studio's latest project is Overstrike, which was officially announced at the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo in June. A squad-based stylized shooter, the game is the first multiplatform project at Insomniac Games.

Outside of Overstrike, Insomniac Games recently created a Facebook and mobile division dubbed Insomniac Click. This shop opened up last March, but there is no indication as to what the label is presently producing.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
