It’s been nearly nine months since we first got wind of Resistance 3 development and today, directly following the announcement of Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One, Insomniac made it official.
The officialÂ Resistance 3 teaser trailer is just that a tease, featuring live-action footage – but no gameplay.
Nonetheless, the announcement is certainly good news – considering both the critical and commercial success of its predecessor. Resistance 3 has been in development for two years and is eying a 2011 release date – meaning Insomniac will have put at least three full years into the game before it hits the shelves.
Marcus Smith, Creative Director at Insomniac Games, expressed the team’s appreciation:
“The team has been hard at work over the last two years developing Resistance 3, and weâ€™re excited to have extra time to ensure that this game lives up to the expectations weâ€™ve all got for it.”
Check out the Resistance 3 teaser trailer below:
While the trailer certainly showcases the potential for a Hollywood film adaptation, it doesn’t provide much tangible information regarding Resistance 3‘s plot, setting, or gameplay improvements.
However, it’s worth speculating that Resistance 3 will utilize New York as one potential backdrop. The finalized logo (shown in the trailer) does match the leaked billboard from October – which prominently featured the Empire State Building as well as the Statue of Liberty. In addition, the live-action train stalls in what appears to be an underground rail-system – potentially New York’s subway system.
No official information regarding the Resistance 3 release time-line has been announced but expect that Insomniac will be shooting for the second half of 2011 – in order to avoid the Killzone 3 juggernaut. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more.
What do you think of the Resistance 3 trailer? What are you hoping to see in the next Resistance installment?
