Insomniac doesn't rule out more Resistance games

Universe "is still fertile ground," says writer

The Resistance saga is completed in Resistance 3 but there's much more to come from the franchise as far as Insomniac writer Jon Paquette is concerned.


Talking to CVG in a recent interview, the FPS scribe implied that the story of series leads Nathan Hale and Joe Capelli was well and truly over - but that's not necessarily the end of the Resistance universe in games.

"At the end of this game it feels like a satisfying ending," he said. "I wanted to make sure that when you finished this game there were no cliff-hangers to make you wonder what's going to happen next.

"It was really important to me to make it feel like the end of the saga. At the same time it was also important to make sure it felt like part of the saga. The story of Nathan Hale and Joe Capelli spans three games, but at the end of this it feels like that's one complete story."

But Paquette went on to suggest that Resistance universe is much bigger than Hale and Capelli. When we questioned whether the writer was burned out and looking to move on to new things, he responded enthusiastically:

"Not at all. The franchise is really strong and I think the universe is great to play in.

"You saw the reveal of Burning Skies [for PS Vita] over at Gamescom and that's just one example of another game that could be made on a different piece of hardware, with a different main character but in the same universe.

"I think it's still fertile ground."
