Lightbox To Reveal New Title "Soon?"

We really loved Warhawk. If we weren't so bogged down with so many other games, we'd probably still be singing its praises, especially after all the enhancements and transformations.

It's available on the PSN and can also be found in stores, and it remains one of the best online multiplayer experiences available. Recently, though, we've been turning our attention to Lightbox Interactive's new project; Lightbox is comprised of members of the Incognito team that gave us Warhawk. Many have guessed that it'll be called "Starhawk" and feature an open-world galaxy of some kind, but perhaps we won't have to guess much longer. According to what SCE Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida told Joystiq, we should be hearing all about it some time soon.

"I was expecting that it's about time we should update the status of what the team is doing. The team has been working on something new for a while, and I wouldn't be surprised if are able to soon talk about it, but not at this time."

We're sorta hoping they include a single-player campaign with this one, but if we get a similar gameplay mechanic, that'll be enough. It should probably be mentioned that former Incognito boss Scott Campbell is now working with David Jaffe over at Eat Sleep Play...which is part of the reason we will get helicopters in the new Twisted Metal. Anyway, we'll keep an eye out for any Lightbox announcements.

10 planets ruled by 5 Factions

Choose your side and take over other planets!
Or something of the sort hehe

I just hope there are many BIG planets we can fight in.

Warhawk's damn fun, just hoping for more balance when the opposing team's dominating, at least give us the option to summon extra anti-air weapons and such. When one side dominates the air it's next to impossible to even recover the match.

Still, fun game.

I'm expecting a big game from Lightbox they've had 3+ years to work on this.

War hawk was the first game I played on the old PS3 I picked it up when I bought the 60gig for $600. I loved that game.

I thought warhawk was pretty good, but I'll never buy a console game that is MP shooter only.

Sounds interesting - this generation is really missing a good space shooter like Colony Wars. Hopefully we'll get a single player campaign, I'm one of those odd people who like to have missions to complete and objectives to accomplish. You know, variety.

I liked Warhawk but I have my doubts on starhawk. Kinda slipped outta my mind for a while because I hadn't heard much on it lately. Glad to know some more info should be coming soon

Agree with kraygen. I feel a little cheated with no single player.

I would love if they took up and made Star Wars Battlefront 3 =P would be great with their expertise. Sigh, I just wish there was a new battlefront, for me, it was the best star wars game on consoles.
