Zipper Interactive Would've Delivered A Brand New FPS For PS4
For the record, we always thought MAG had a ton of fantastic potential.
It really was one of the most entertaining online games of the generation in our estimation, and those who played it for a while perfectly understand its appeal. That's why we were saddened to hear about developer Zipper Interactive's closing.
And unfortunately, it means we're missing out on a new PlayStation 4 title. According to VideoGamer citing former Zipper designers, the team was planning a next-gen FPS; a brand new IP, in fact. But that was "halted upon the dissolution of the studio." Zipper had also made SOCOM: US Navy SEALs, so they knew what they were doing in the first- and third-person shooter categories.
Their last title was the decent Unit 13 for the PlayStation Vita. It's too bad we'll never see that PS4 shooter but then again, we probably have enough FPSs scheduled for the new generation, don't we?
