Jan-Bart van Beek, the art director at Guerilla Games, has told IGN that there is more Killzone in development. Avid franchise fans will be aware of Sony Cambridge’s work on a Vita outing for the series. That continues, with the studio now being embedded within Guerilla.
There is also an unnamed new IP project in the works from the main Guerilla Games studio and van Beek says they’re still working on supporting Killzone on PlayStation 3. It’s unknown whether he means further DLC for Killzone 3 or an entirely new Killzone project. Perhaps we might even see an HD re-release of the first Killzone.
The news came during a talk about the pitching process for new IP at the studio, in which van Beek mentioned how they go about coming up with ideas for new games. During that talk he mentioned a game called Dark Science which was a kind of spin on a steampunk Sherlock Holmes that evolved into a ’70s styled futuristic action cop drama in the vein of the Dirty Harry movies.
Dark Science was specifically stated to not be Guerilla’s next project, it was eventually halted, but it still sounds like an interesting idea. Hopefully we’ll see more of what Guerilla Games is working on at E3 this year.
