It seems as though Resistance 3 could be Insominac Games’ final Resistance game, with the fourth game potentially being passed to another developer. During an interview with Gaming Union, creative director Marcus Smith had the following to say:

“As far as Resistance being the flagship… I think Insomniac has always branched out. I loved the Spyro the Dragon series when [Insomniac] did that. I didn’t work there at the time, and I was bummed when they didn’t work on the fourth game, but ultimately, I think it was healthy for them to move on. I think that’s what we’re seeing here. We’ve done Resistance 3 and we’re really into it and proud of it, but we’re not currently slated to do a Resistance 4. So it would be hard to say it’s any kind of lynchpin within Insomniac. I think we’re thriving and branching out in a lot of different directions.”

When questioned about handing the series over to someone else, Smith responded with the following:

“I can definitely see that. Nihilistic is already doing a [Resistance] Vita game, which is going to be awesome. We really respect those guys as game developers. Sony Bend did Resistance Retribution on PSP. We’ve got a lot of different places for the universe to go, so I could certainly see the series going to another developer. I’m sure Sony would want to find a high caliber developer to do a good offering. I don’t think they’d hand the franchise over to somebody who is going to screw it up.”

So there you go. Resistance 3 could be Insominac’s final game in the FPS series that they created.
