Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price has publicly responded to yesterday's news that the studio won't be making any more Resistance games.
Addressing fans via a YouTube video, Price said the developer believes the series has reached its "logical conclusion", but that doesn't mean the franchise won't continue with Sony.
"We believe that Resistance has reached its logical conclusion in terms of the story that we wanted to tell," he said.
"However, that doesn't mean that the Resistance franchise isn't continuing - it's already in the capable hands of Nihilistic and with Sony's shepherding we know that it will continue to live on and expand.
"We're excited as fanboys to see where it goes."
The studio's clearly keen to move on then, even if Insomniac writer Jon Paquette believes there's more to come from the Resistance universe. "I think it's still fertile ground," he told us last September as Resistance 3 released, pointing towards upcoming Vita title Resistance: Burning Skies, which is being handled by Nihilistic Software.
