Posted on December 1, 2011, Ross Lincoln What Does Insomniac Have Planned For Resistance 3?
Well you know what this means, right? Time to put on our wild speculation hats and guess. Just off the top of my head, here are my absolutely unscientific guesses for what we might be looking forward to:
* New DLC. Likelihood: HIGH.
So far they haven’t released anything but the Survival Pack, which contained new maps, a new multiplayer mode and some new skins. Ho-hum. Perhaps now they’ll be releasing something to expand the already wonderful story. The question is, would it be inserted into the main story, or a post-game expansion, perhaps building off of something introduced, but not explored, in the main game. My money would be on a pack focusing on the former inmates of Gaterford Prison, or on the adventures of Doctor Malikov prior to reaching Haven, Oklahoma.
* PC version. Likelihood: Extremely LOW.
Though critically acclaimed (it is definitely in my top 5 for the year), Resistance 3 hasn’t flown off the shelves. It still hasn’t surpassed the 1 million sales mark, all but guaranteeing it will end the year as something of a huge flop. To illustrate how bad this is for the game, consider that the amazing Bulletstorm, which is not likely to get a sequel, still sold more than a million copies. Enlarging the potential buyer pool by porting to PC would be smart. Unfortunately, Insomniac has a pretty exclusive relationship with Sony, so don’t bet on it.
* Resistance 3 movie. Likelihood: LAME.
This would be the kind of thing a company might want to announce as a treat for fans. Considering Resistance 3′s disappointing sales, I doubt it. Plus, it would probably suck and be directed by Uwe Boll.
But enough about my unfounded theories, let us know in comments what you think this non announcement announcement is! And of course, count on us letting you know on Monday.
