Not that I want to spread rumors or get some bad vibes going, but…
I'm just wondering why we haven't heard much of anything about Insomniac's new multiplatform project, Overstrike . It was announced last year and showed up at E3, and we got a bunch of info and some early media at the time but since then, it has sort of dropped off the radar.
The Resistance developer is capable of doing something pretty amazing, and one would think more gamers would be interested in Overstrike . A four-player co-op adventure featuring both humor and a decent storyline (based on the aforementioned details), the game looks colorful and overall, quite promising. But when we go a while without hearing any updates at all, people start to get a little antsy and worse, a little suspicious. The placeholder release date for the title is December 31, 2012, which probably doesn't mean anything.
You can visit Insomniac's website to learn more about Overstrike if you've forgotten it. But it almost seems like the team is more focused on the upcoming downloadable title, Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault . Any chance Overstrike is being prepped for the new generation now…? The new Xbox may come around faster than the new PlayStation and this title is a multiplat. Plus, Insomniac helped launch the PS3 with the first Resistance effort (which was pretty amazing).
Just a theory that might explain away some of this silence. Not that it's entirely possible, though.
