Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Limited has filed a trademark application for “Resistance”, specifically related to video games. The last time we saw the Resistance series was Resistance: Burning Skies for the PS Vita, and the last time we saw it on the PS3 was Resistance 3 in 2011.
It’s possible that the trademark application indicates a return to the series with a new game entirely or perhaps just an HD remaster of the series for the PS4. However, the series’ original developer, Insomniac, would likely not be working on the project as they have already said they have moved on from the IP, so Sony would have to hand off the IP to another studio.
In all likelihood, this move is just to save the trademark in case Sony ever wants to return to the IP rather than confirmation that a new title is in the works so don’t get your hopes up too high.
