Non-Insomniac Resistance 4 possible

A home console Resistance game with someone other than Insomniac at the helm is a distinct possibility, creative director Marcus Smith has stated.

With Resistance 3 almost out the door and — according to Smith — Insomniac “not currently slated to do a Resistance 4,” the series could well find a home at another studio.

“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,” says Smith.

“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.”

But, Resistance 3 comes first. It’s out early next month; September 6th in NA, 9th in Europe.
