Guerrilla Say It's "Too Early" To Talk About The Future Of Killzone

Will we ever say hello to the Helghast again?

Horizon Zero Dawn has been a huge success, an instant classic with a new PlayStation mascot in the shape of Aloy, but what does that mean for Killzone? The last game, Killzone Mercenary for PS Vita, was well received but Sony shut down developers Guerrilla Cambridge last January leaving only the main studio in Germany who are working on Horizon. Have we seen the last of the Helghast?

“It’s really heartwarming to hear that there’s such a strong appetite from the loyal Killzone fanbase”, comments  Guerrilla Games’ managing director, Hermen Hulst. “It’s a franchise and universe that we still love with a passion at Guerrilla. It hasn’t been easy doing something so completely different. Whether or not we’ve put a permanent period behind the series, it’s too early to make announcements on that. All I can say is that we’ve always loved the Killzone universe and the Killzone series, and we still do. We share that passion for the game with a lot of our fans.”

Killzone, along with Resistance, were key titles for Sony in the huge FPS market, but they do seem to be quite happy for third parties to fill that particular gap in their release schedule. The Killzone universe has plenty more stories to be told, not least a resolution to the cliffhanger found at the end of Killzone, so perhaps another studio could take over.

There are many F2P shooters on PS4, none of which seem to have a big install base so maybe tagging on the Killzone license could be winning idea. Or, even better, how about Resistance Vs. Killzone?

    Exclusive shooters and racing games seem to be in short supply on PlayStation period, part of the reason I don’t play on it much.

    I’d love Resistance and Killzone to return. KZ Mercenary was hands down one of the best multiplayer shooters I’ve played on any console. It’d be sad to lose them.

    Oddly I was only tweeting the other day that I miss Killzone. There was always something about it that I go on particularly well with. Ah well, I’m sure Destiny 2 will fill the void for me!

    Wasnt the last edition Shadow Fall for ps4? That was decent but I wish they’d made a killzone mercenary style game for ps4, that multi player was great!

    Shadowfall seemed to get a lukewarm reception, but after playing it myself (very late I have to admit) it was actually pretty good. The story goes a bit off towards the end and the mysterious cold war-esque vibe dies out a bit, but I put that down to a deadline crunch for the ps4 launch.

    Mercenary was excellent too. Would love to see more killzone.
