Killzone 2 Release Date Emerging?

While we lie in wait to deliver our thoughts and impressions on our special Killzone 2 experience outside the beta, we continue to search for news regarding a finalized release date.

According to TheGameReviews.com, the current rumored date is February 17, which is backed up by both GameSpot and GameStop. The website's recent On the Spot episode tossed out the aforementioned date, and the retailer also pegs K2 at February 17. On the other hand, Amazon.com still lists a February 1 date, although one could consider that to be an out-of-date placeholder. Sony will only say they're "eyeing" a February launch for the hotly anticipated shooter, but we've known that for quite a while. As for the beta test, that ends this weekend, and the next step may consist of a playable demo for the PlayStation Store, although we have no concrete evidence of that just yet. We do know that, after having spent considerable time in the beta, Killzone 2 will undoubtedly live up to the hype, and considering the amount of hype, that's saying an awful lot. And with the feedback received from testers, Guerilla can make it even better. ...if that's even possible.

Anyway, if we can find a way to nail down that February 17 date, we'll tell you all about it. Until then, just be happy with the "February 2009" estimate; it's really not that far off.

Agreed. When a game is confirmed to be AAA title across the board, a demo will only serve to spoil the initial surprise...

You dont have to download the demo and can still be blown on away on the day it's released.

Or do you mean if there is a demo available you wont be able to stop yourself from downloading it and trying it out. I know I couldnt if I tried lol

Doesn't really matter. This game is all about the multiplayer...and it's AWESOME!!! I'm going to be going through some serious withdrawal when the beta ends.

Troy if this game is as good as you say on the multiplayer end you gotta hit me up on PSN and we will get the MP gaming on. Groovy341 on psn. I hope that doesn't go against the new Sony EULA of not disclosing who you are....

And what exactly are we beta testers supposed to do between now and February? How can they just give me this great game to play, and then take it away for 3 months? This sh** is just WRONG, man!

I remember reading on the beta forums that, straight from the devs, there will be no demo for this game. That was a few weeks ago. We'll see if that is still true as things seem to change very quickly.

If there is a demo I hope they put some quality into it. I'm in the beta I can tell you this will be a great game. There are many demos, MS Pacific Rift case in point, that don't do justice to the full version of the game. In some instances it can really hurt the sales if the demo leaves people with a bad impression.

I noticed that too. Demos turn me off sometimes cuz they tend to be a lil pixelated...
