Guerrilla: "We Are Not Suspending Killzone 2 Servers"

Last week, we were alerted to the possibility that Guerrilla Games may have halted support for Killzone 2's online multiplayer.

Users around the Internet were suddenly complaining about frozen rankings and leaderboards that hadn't been updated, and some assumed that with Killzone 3 right around the corner, Guerrilla may have simply decided to ditch KZ2. This sort of annoyed a few people, especially because the developer never warned anyone that support for KZ2 online would suddenly disappear. Well, they didn't tell anyone because it isn't happening; Guerrilla producer Seb Downie contacted us with the following information-

"To be clear, we are not planning on suspending any servers for Killzone 2 and are actively looking into why users are experiencing this problem and will correct it as soon as possible.

We noticed the complaints regarding the Leaderboard issues being reported by the community late last week and have been trying to reproduce and correct this issue ever since.

I hope this answers your concerns and we will ensure that the community is aware that we will resolve this issue soon."

So there you go; just a technical problem of some kind. Guerrilla has no plans to discontinue support of KZ2 just because KZ3 drops next week, and that's good news for all the multiplayer aficionados out there. Remember, you'll see our review soon...

You know, people are so quick to assume the worst these days. A server glitch causes a problem with the KZ2 leader boards and suddenly it's a conspiracy to kill the servers? Oh there are so many other examples, but it's not really worth listing them, the point is clear enough. People are so quick to assume these days, perhaps cooler heads should be the order of the day?

Perhaps. I got several freaked-out e-mails, and I was thinking the same thing... I figured I'd see such a clarification from Guerrilla.

But, news is news. :)

Yeah, when I read the KZ2 news I thought everyone just needed to take a chill pill and calm down.

Sorry Ben, I think I should have been clearer in my comment. I know that news is news and once it becomes an issue because of all the blog posts and board comments, it's news, so it will be reported. I wasn't taking issue with PSX reporting on it. I was referring more to the super quick way that gamers today will automatically assume the worst motives possible when there is any kind of unexpected outage.

I think gamers often assume the worst because that is so often the order of the day this generation. This is often Murphy's Generation, whatever can go wrong does. Sony and its studios contribute to the least of it at least.

I guess it just proves we've got way too many Quick Draw McGraw's & Speedy Gonzale's out there now these days, especially that it's the generation of the full-blown enabling twitcher.

I feel sorry for all those young twitch turks, just because there's no "Jumping the shark" trophies awarded for that, not even a Bronze one.

And there never will be.

It really doesn't matter to me since KZ3 will replace KZ2.

But Highlander nailed it though, people are quick to assume the worse!!

Does the force say anything about Ar Tonelico? I'm pondering a preorder.

Way to go straight to the source and get the community the answer they deserve. That's the way it's done.

And thanks to Downie too. Maybe now I can work on those insane trophies you put in the game.

Well, that's good news, Kudos to them.
And I don't think we were specting the worst, it was just bad timing. If this glich had happened before I think we would have assumed there was a server problem, but no, it had to happend just days before the KZ3 launch. Just what speculation needed to run rampant.
And if yout think about it, it did look suspicious. What a coincidence.

I never had a doubt. But I don't do much of that new fangled onliney playtime so I have no vested interest either way.

I do think online trophies should have their own separate status so you can Platinum in single player and Chrome in MP.

I agree with World,

Just separate the SP & MP trophies, so us SP mode players have a chance to get some kind of a platinum trophy too.
