With the studio now preparing to go multiplatform, creative director Marcus Smith told Gaming Union that he "can definitely see" the Resistance franchise being handed off to another developer.

"As far as Resistance being the flagship, I think Insomniac has always branched out," he said.

"I loved the Spyro the Dragon series when [Insomniac] did that. I didn't work there at the time, and I was bummed when they didn't work on the fourth game, but ultimately, I think it was healthy for them to move on. I think that's what we're seeing here. We've done Resistance 3 and we're really into it and proud of it, but we're not currently slated to do a Resistance 4. So it would be hard to say it's any kind of lynchpin within Insomniac. I think we're thriving and branching out in a lot of different directions."

Insomniac Games currently has three titles in development: Resistance 3, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One and Overstrike. The latter is set to be the developer's first multiplatform project after 15-years of PlayStation exclusivity.

Thus, Smith reckons the developer might be ready to pass the torch on.

"I can definitely see that. Nihilistic is already doing a [Resistance] Vita game, which is going to be awesome. We really respect those guys as game developers. Sony Bend did Resistance Retribution on PSP.

"We've got a lot of different places for the universe to go, so I could certainly see the series going to another developer. I'm sure Sony would want to find a high calibre developer to do a good offering. I don't think they'd hand the franchise over to somebody who is going to screw it up."
