The Dutch Sony-exclusive developer Guerrilla Games are well-known for their Killzone first-person shooter games. So the following Killzone 4 hint shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans of the multi-million-selling series.
At a Game Developers Conference 2012 panel about their art process, Guerrilla Games’s Studio Art Director Jan-Bart van Beek confirmed they are currently working on three different projects at the same time. Two out of three are Killzone projects, one for PS Vita and one for PS3!
Guerrilla’s projects are:
#1. Killzone Vita, in development together with Sony Cambridge Studios.
#2. Killzone 4 or more Killzone 3 DLC, as they said to be “continuing the Killzone franchise on the PlayStation 3.” At this point, a sequel seems like a shoe-in.
#3. A new game IP, one that’s not in the Killzone franchise. It was suggested it’s 1 of these 3 genres: zombies, werewolves, or Ghost in the Shell.
Here’s the exciting Killzone 3 launch trailer to the tune of “The Vines – Get Free”.
May 2012 Update: Sony’s recording a teaser for a future Killzone game, most likely Killzone 4, which is said to take place after the events of Killzone 3. The teaser’s lines are rumored to be written for the Helghan Aurarch Visari’s daughter. The description reads:
“My sons and my daughters, today we take the first step toward our imperial future.
For years, this once-great nation has stagnated in the shadow of its enemies. Governed by scoundrels who flaunted the ideals established by my father, these traitors… these enemies of our race have diluted and exploited the triad of Duty, Obedience, and Loyalty.
This regime, this corrupt regime, has been dissolved. In its place does rise an era of stability and strength. A time of opportunity born from a promise that we shall return our people to their proper sphere of dominance.”
