Could Guerrilla's New IP Be A Blend Of Fantasy And Shooter?
It has been pseudo-confirmed that Killzone developer Guerrilla Games is secretly working on an all-new IP.
The obvious question is- "what?" Well, if you want to believe the insinuations and implications Next Gen News evidently located within the studio's job listings, the project could be awfully intriguing... Amongst descriptions for FX Artist, Concept Artist, Senior Game Designer and Senior Coder, we find descriptive words like "legend," "Dumbledore," "wizards," "god" and "Daedalus." Okay, so it might be a reach to assume they're working on a cross between a staff 'n sword RPG and a FPS, but there does appear to be a central theme. Then again, maybe the dude who writes these job descriptions has been playing Dragon Age a lot, or he's one of those Dungeon Masters who has had the time to pump out dozens of fantastical stories. It's really impossible to make assumptions right now, but we'd certainly like to believe Guerrilla is capable of delivering something fresh and perhaps even wholly original.
You know, somewhere in the depths of our selfish, sheltered little hearts, we want the best developers in the world to stick to what we love. In the same way that we want Naughty Dog to fixate on Uncharted, we also want Guerrilla to stick to Killzone. It's the safe, secure option; we know we'll be entertained. But the freer, risk-taking part of ourselves wants the designer to spread its wings and try something new.
