Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Limited has filed a trademark application for “Resistance”, specifically related to video games and electronic games services provided by means of the Internet.
The Resistance franchise was assumed dead after 2012’s Resistance: Burning Skies for PS Vita, could this trademark be for a rebooted PlayStation 4 game? The series has many fans and the Chimera have made appearances in PlayStation adverts so Sony are obviously keen on the games.
However, Insomniac have jumped ship and now create multi-platform titles so they are unlikely to return to the series, in fact Insomniac CEO Ted Price has stated that they”won’t be making any more Resistance games. That said, Creative director Marcus Smith has also said he “can definitely see” Insomniac handing off the PlayStation exclusive shooter series to another developer.
Alternatively, Resistance may be a new keep fit title for PS4 which uses resistance bands.
Who knows? We don’t, but it’s fun guessing, would you like a Resistance reboot?
