Clarifying through additional tweets, Insomniac Games state that there are several reasons that are causing the servers to be shut down. All of which are determined from Sony leaving Insomniac Games with little control as to say. Some fans have noticed that Resistance Burning Skies was not on the list. Insomniac Games tweeted saying that they really didn’t know if Sony was pulling the plug on Burning Skies or not so only time will tell.
