We heard the sad news mere hours ago but thankfully, fans don't have to erect the RIP tombstone just yet.

Insomniac boss Ted Price decided to issue a public statement in regards to his studio dropping the Resistance series; you can view the candid comments below.

First and perhaps foremost, Price said he believes the franchise reached its "logical conclusion" in regards to the studio's goals. He doesn't mention anything about disappointing Resistance 3 sales so perhaps that didn't factor into the decision. Secondly, he also revealed that Resistance isn't technically dead…it has merely shifted. You're aware of the Vita incarnation, right…?
