Resistance 3 Invasion Prepared for Announcement this August?

Only days ago it was revealed that Insomniac Games’ current game in development would not only be announced at Penny Arcade Expo this year, but would also be playable. However, Insomniac has now clarified when the team will be announcing their long-awaited title.

Insomniac’s August 2010 newsletter has confirmed that the studio will be announcing the next title the team has been working on within the next month. According to details this will be the last PlayStation 3 exclusive project from the studio, and is unrelated to the EA partnership for multiplatform development that was announced not long ago. The August newsletter states the following:

“…we’re happy to reveal that we’ll be announcing our newest game sometime between now and the Penny-Arcade Expo over Labor Day weekend. We’re really excited to finally reveal this project, and we couldn’t resist being the first to share the news with you.”

The newsletter goes on to add the following details:

“Even bigger news is that newsletter subscribers will be the first folks to see the trailer: the instant we announce the game – we’ll be blasting a newsletter with the trailer for you to view at home.”

One thing to note is that Insomniac’s development team announced that Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time would be their last Ratchet title. With that said, it’s safe to assume that the team are about to announce the long-rumored Resistance 3.

Since SOCOM 4’s release date was recently pushed to 2011, a 2010 release date for Resistance 3 would be a welcomed addition for this holiday season.

PAX 2010 begins on September 3rd, and the game will be playable on the show floor.
