Insomniac Rules Out Resistance Return
Insomniac - it's done with Resistance. That's it. Made up its mind. You couldn't get the studio to make another Resistance game if you offered it lots of sweeties and asked really nicely. No. Instead, it's looking towards the social gaming space.

VG247 caught the news from Insomniac CEO, Ted Price, during his stay at the Game::Business::Law Summit at the Southern Methodist University today. "We won?t be making any more Resistances," he said. And that, it seems, is all he said.

Speaking on the studio's social gaming venture, Insomniac Click, Price was a lot more positive. "Certainly over the next couple years, we?re going to see a huge evolution in visuals in social games. It?s thanks to improving technologies. It?s thanks to browsers that are getting better and more powerful. It?s thanks to development teams ? core traditional game teams who are moving into the space."

Those who are worrying if the studio is going to jump away from console gaming forever, fret not - the team is also hard at work on four-player co-op shooter Overstrike.
