Insomniac: 2011 launch for Resistance 3 is “music to our ears”

Monday, 25th October 2010 13:18 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Resistance 3 creative director Marcus Smith has said the Insomniac shooter’s 2011 launch is “music to our ears.”

“Many of us now have children, and the reality of game development is that we need to maintain the quality, so something else had to change,” Smith told GamesTM.

“Extending the development cycle was the way to go. It was something we were discussing from the very beginning.”

Insomniac was previously on two year dev-cycles for games such as Ratchet and Clank or Resistance, but announced back at gamescom it was reverting to three year dev-cycles.

Had it stuck to its two year regime, we would be seeing R3 this year.

Instead, it’ll release next year on PS3.

Thanks, Beefjack.

    After reading that they got rid of the Story Driven 8 player MP Co-op, I became very disappointed. If it has a HUGE MEATY single player story then I will look at it again, but if it is just a 3-4 hour SP..yet another Pass at full Price..SIGH!! That is what happens when you turn producer reigns over to someone else.

    It was the ONLY MP game that I played regularly! Loved 8 Player Co-op!

    @4 And perhaps @2 should have some remedial maths while he’s at it. Since when is 82/100 a BAD score or a failure.. Jeez.

    I’m fed up with people quoting Metacritic averages and say anything less that 90 is a bad/failed game. 50/100 is the median/average people ;)

    That is all… ;)

    @4: ah come on. that´s the intercrap – without it it would be boring…i do not even have a ps3 anymore but i definitely prefer resistance. gears is the overhyped game imo. too much tough guy bullshit for my taste. insomniac are cool. very happy that they go multiplat finally…

    Excellent news, i loved how great Insomniac’s games were & the fact that they only had 2 years to get such great quality is admirable, let’s see how great their games look with an extra year in their hands.
    @2, you talk over hyped games then you mention Gears?-MASSIVE HYPOCRITE!
