'Resistance 4' Reportedly Cancelled Because Of Another PlayStation Exclusive

Insomniac Games is celebrating yet another win, following the incredible critical response to Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. The iconic studio's latest effort has widely been regarded as a slam-dunk, and the best PlayStation 5 title yet.

Not that this is hugely surprising. Insomniac Games has long been one of the most-loved studios out there. From Spyro to Spider-Man, each one of its games is packed with action, adventure, and visuals that constantly push the envelope.

Take a look at our video review for the latest Ratchet & Clank adventure below!

While Insomniac is probably best known these days for its work on Spider-Man and Ratchet & Clank, there is one other franchise the studio is responsible for that fans would love to see come back. Resistance: Fall Of Man was a very different kind of game for Insomniac when it hit PlayStation 3 back in 2006. No colourful worlds or quipping heroes, just a bleak post-apocalyptic shooter.

That's not to say Resistance was bad - quite the opposite. The original game went on to spawn two more sequels on PS3, but the series has been on ice since 2011. Fans have long wondered exactly why such a popular series was quietly taken away, and now we know: The Last Of Us.

During a recent episode of the PlayStation podcast Sacred Symbols, Colin Moriarty revealed he'd heard from friends at Insomniac that a fourth Resistance game had been pitched. He claims this pitch was rejected for the simple reason that Sony had way too many other post-apocalyptic games in various stages of development. The Last Of Us was nearing completion for starters, but Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone were also just beginning to take shape.

While this doesn't mean we won't ever see a new Resistance game, I probably wouldn't hold my breath either. The Last Of Us and Horizon have established themselves as killer franchises, while Insomniac has its hands full with two incredibly popular series in the form of Spider-Man and Ratchet & Clank
