Sony-owned studio said to be working on a follow-up for its PlayStation-exclusive sci-fi shooter franchise.
Insomniac Games may be dropping Resistance after its third installment in that PlayStation 3-exclusive shooter franchise, but it appears as if Guerrilla Games will remain locked in to Killzone. Gamerzines reports today that the latest issue of Edge Magazine confirms Guerrilla Games has begun work on "a Killzone follow-up."
The latest issue of Edge has yet to hit newsstands--though it is reportedly available to subscribers--and the magazine's online arm has confirmed an impending Guerrilla Games feature. According to Gamerzines, that feature reveals that most of the studio's staff has begun work on a new installment in the sci-fi shooter franchise.
Killzone 2 and 3 senior producer Steven Ter Heide will reportedly serve as game director on the new title. Gamerzines' recap of Edge's story offered no other details on the new project, such as platforms or release date.
Guerrilla's latest installment in the franchise, Killzone 3, launched to a warm critical reception in February. A direct sequel to 2009's Killzone 2, the game saw a squad of Interplanetary Strategic Alliance troops aiming to survive an invasion of the Nazi-esque Helghan homeworld. The game added full 3D support to the franchise, as well as PlayStation Move integration.
