Guerrilla: We Need To "Reflect On What Is Actually Out There"

It's Thursday, the now-traditional update day for the PlayStation Network, and the third DLC pack for Killzone 2 - Napalm & Cordite - is now available for download.

But this will mark the end of DLC for a little while, as it appears that Guerrilla plans to "step back" and take a breather. According to what Producer Seb Downie said over at the European PlayStation Blog, the team wants to sit back and take a gander at the industry landscape. Said Downie:

"Right now we’re going to take a step back from Killzone 2. We’ve been working non-stop since the disc version was released on patches, DLC and http://www.killzone.com updates, so need some time to reflect on what is actually out there."

Now, this may mark the end of all DLC for KZ2, or it just might be Guerrilla trying to snag some much-deserved downtime. These days, we all have to remember that the process of game development doesn't end with the launch of the title; the advent of downloadable content has expanded the work week, so-to-speak. But what is more interesting about Downie's comment is that when he says they want to see "what is actually out there," that may indicate a shift in the team's direction... We're all anticipating Killzone 3, but might Guerrilla try something new?

Anyway, talk on that if you wish, and remember that if you haven't snagged any of the three DLC packs for KZ2 yet, Sony will soon release a Map Pack Bundle that will feature all of 'em. We'll let you know when there's a date and price attached to the package.

I already bought the first two, so no use getting the bundle now.. haha
Guess I'll finish it off, and get the third DLC.

I don't see why people complain that $6 is expensive. It's the price of a burger and a drink... not like it's gonna make you broke anytime soon. I get more entertainment value from any DLC maps than a $12 movie, so I don't see what the problem is...

Agreed, though a $12 movie is a total rip-off. You can freaking BUY it on DVD for that price.

Killzone 3? Nah jk. I feel as if Killzone 2 could last 7 years. I haven't played the game, but I've seen people and friends play it. All I can see on their face is intensity and just how much they are connected with the game (at that moment).

It's amazing.

Anyway, pretty awesome stuff for Guerilla.

Guerilla needs a break they have done nothing but get new patches and dlc for this game released and they have given almost everything the community has asked for. Its kinda sad really since a lot of people still complain about a game that is so good and I think that Guerrilla's work is a little underappreciated.
I will definately be getting the third dlc today when the store updates. See you guys in warzone!

I thought for sure they were trying to be the game with those most available trophies..Burnout still beats them. After getting platinum over the weekend, I'm looking forward to trying out these new maps.

But they have the glowing red eyes! Why would they want to try something new? When you have light sabers you make Star Wars. When you have glowing red eyes you make Killzone!
