A great many wanted Resistance 4 . Lower-than-anticipated sales of Resistance 3 may have impacted the decision to deliver another sequel, but that wasn't one of the reasons Insomniac boss Ted Price cited.
In speaking to GamesRadar , Price said his team "seriously considered" a fourth Resistance but they instead opted to create a new franchise (the co-op-driven Fuse ). Essentially, they wanted to do something new.
"One of the aspects of building franchises, and sticking with them for a long time is that even the team can get franchise fatigue. We had been pushing hard with Resistance from the beginning–which was a tough birth–to Resistance 3, which is a game we were all very proud of. With Resistance 3 it felt like we had capped off, or at least closed a major chapter in that franchise. So, a lot of the team was looking forward to doing something different."
Yeah, well, I still say they should make Resistance 4 for the PS4. I love that series. It's the only FPS that I really adored this past generation, and part of the reason was those awesome weapons… Resistance 3 had the single best arsenal of weapons in any game of the entire generation. Yeah, I said it. Not one was bad and they were all highly inventive and extremely effective. Diversity and imagination! So I wasn't fatigued, but whatever.
