Resistance 3 Delay is Good News for Insomniac Games

October 26, 2010Written by Paulmichael Contreras

In the past year Insomniac Games has been going through some major changes. Besides going multiplatform with their North Carolina studio, the company had decided to shift to a three-year development cycle instead of their usual two. The developer recently expressed their happiness in having made this decision regarding Resistance 3.

Speaking recently with GamesTM magazine, creative director Marcus Smith expressed his team’s satisfaction when they learned that the game would be given a full extra year’s worth of development time:

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

So while a game releasing later is a bit more painful to wait for, if it means the game is not just rushed to market and then patched later then the positives of delaying a game should outweigh the negatives of doing so. Resistance 3 is currently slated for a 2011 release.
