Guerrilla: We Still Love Killzone But We're Focused On Horizon
When will we see Killzone again?
Well, developer Guerrilla Games isn't sure but they have no plans to abandon the IP.
During a recent Edge interview (as cited by GamesRadar), studio Managing Director Hermen Hulst said it's "too early" to talk about the next Killzone entry, but we shouldn't read anything into that vague update:
"My enthusiasm for Horizon by no means should suggest that I'm now uninterested in Killzone. We love that franchise, we really do. But it's too early for me to comment on future projects. It's going to be a very big challenge for us to get [Horizon] out the door. And as for what's going to happen after that? We'll talk about that later."
Killzone: Shadow Fall, a PlayStation 4 launch title, was the last series entry Guerrilla released. But now they're working on the hugely anticipated PS4 exclusive, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and Hulst says it's the most most challenging project the team has ever tackled.
"After we shipped Killzone: Shadow Fall, and we'd been through the hoopla of doing a launch title, I thought that was going to be the toughest thing we'd ever do. It pales in comparison to this [Horizon]."
We're happy Guerrilla is trying something completely new, and we can't wait for the new IP. After that, if they want to return to Killzone, that's just fine.
