Rumor: Killzone 4, Killzone Vita Title, New IP In Development

We can't wait to see what Guerrilla Games does next. And it appears we could be looking forward to multiple announcements.

According to an "inside source" cited at TheBitBag, Guerrilla is working on the next Killzone entry, although we don't know if it's for the PS3 or PS4. It also seems that an installment for the PlayStation Vita is in the works, as well as a mystery new IP.

Guerrilla has gone on record saying they wanted to tackle something new, so it's not exactly surprising. They're not trying to hide the fact, either, as evidenced by the front page of their website. The big question is: what's this new project like? It's not another Killzone entry, right? Is it another FPS, though? Well, guess we'll just have to wait and see; maybe they'll reveal something at this year's E3 in June.  ...too much to hope for a slick RPG?

What do you want to see Guerrilla try?

i wouldn't want them to leave the FPS genre seeing thats what they do best, but then again GG did make amazing online play in Killzone, so if somehow they incorporate the online play into any other game i will be pleased.

I predict the Vita title will be out first and KZ4 a PS4 launch title. This new IP may be a PS3 title, coming out after KZVita but before KZ4.

I hope its like that, but usually the new IP is something that they try on a new console

Well, we already knew that a Vita title is in development, but it's primarily being done at Sony Cambridge, while GG oversees it. I'll want it when I finally get a Vita, but not before Resistance. KZ4... I'm not sure if it interests me, I have all of the other games to date but haven't gotten around to playing any but the second, so I'm definitely on the fence.

As for the new IP, I'll say it's a pure TPS to rival Gears. I mean, Sony doesn't really have anything like that, so it makes some sense and does give GG freedom. Anyway, it'll probably release before the PS4 to give the IP time to establish itself then GG will split, as ND have done, to continue both series on the PS4 in the future.

pretty much a no brainier!
they already announced after KZ3 they were doing a new IP, and yes it is for the ps3.
and the vita version has already been announced as co developers.
KZ4, well no sh*t sherlock especially after the ending of KZ3!
id love to see a KZ4, hopefully it follows the tradition of 3 and starts of right where 3 ended, and is the same structure of 3 just with boss battles added back.
its funny 3 added everything i wanted over 2, but it also removed the best part of 2, the boss battles!
something all ps3 games did last year, look at R3 and uncharted 3 too.
ask anyone out there what was the best part of R2 and they will say the massive boss battles!
so insomniac removed them for R3!
ask anyone out there what was the best part of uncharted 2 and they will tell you the boss battles, my personal favourite was the chopper.
so ND remove them for the sequel.
sigh.......
what is it with developers latley and taking the best parts of games and removing them for the sequels?
i thought the whole point of a sequel was to transfer what people like and improve on it, fix what fans did not like, and remove what you cant fix.
not remove what they liked, fix nothing, and keep in things they hated!

What are you smoking! A lot of reviewers wanted the boss fights removed from U2 because they weren't any "good" so ND took it to heart an streamlined their game. You seriously need to be so god damn negative on every post!

Killzone 3 is an absolutely stunning looking game. Everything is so sharp and crisp...a lot of polish and detail to the game. I'm a big fan of the multiplayer. The single player campign was not so great. It was really short and practicaly on rails. A lot of sprinting down narrow paths until the next set of glowing eyes. I've read that the reason it had an on rails quality was to accomadate Move support. Kind of ironic when you think about it.

Anyways, GG is almost at the very top of my list of great developers based on their technical prowess alone. They just need to figure out how to tell a decent story and open up the levels more in the SP campign.

It doesn't really matter much to me when the next Killzone comes out or what platform it's for as long as we finally get some Helghast protagonists. I've never really cared all that much for the ISA, and now especially not after the ending of Killzone 3.

I also like to think that that live action video that was released not too long ago is indicative of just that situation.

I love new IPs!

I hope its a great launch title for the ps4!


I don't see them making anything thats not a FPS. Its not that they couldn't make a great non FPS game, its just that i can't see them trying something like that

I'd like to see them do a third person shooter like Gears. I think that fits their style totally. Of course i don't want to see them do Gears but some similar, or something like vanquish kind of. As far as KZ4. I honestly think that'll be their last big Ps3 Game. In any case. They are and elite studio and i expect nothing but top quality from them.

What I hope and want to happen:

Give Killzone Vita to another studio to work on.

Split up the team (a la Naughty Dog) so that half works on Killzone 4 for PS4, and half works on the new IP for PS3 to be released within the next year or so.

I'm excited for all three. I know KZ will be a great addition to the Vita library. For KZ4 and the new IP, as long as one of them is on PS3 I will be happy.
