SCE Cambridge Handling Creation Of Killzone For NGP
Naughty Dog is only assisting in the Uncharted production for Sony's Next Generation Portable; Sony Bend (Resistance: Retribution) is handling the actual development.
In that same vein, Guerrilla Games isn't developing the NGP iteration of Killzone, either; according to GamerZines, Guerrilla senior producer Steven Ter Heide confirmed that SCE Cambridge Studios is actually handling development for the next-gen handheld Killzone. But also like Naughty Dog and Sony Bend, Guerrilla will lend a hand. Said Ter Heide:
"Our sister studio in Cambridge is doing that. We've been working with them very closely for a couple of years now. They've been helping us develop actual Killzone content for all the games.
We feel like the game is in good hands. We'll still oversee it because the universe is something we've built up, we know the war and the rules that have been established, but they're driving the development."
It's interesting to learn that Sony Cambridge helped Guerrilla in the past; it's also quite encouraging, wouldn't you say? The sister studio created the PSP version of LittleBigPlanet, and let's not forget about the PS1 classic, Medieval. It's probably a good idea; Guerrilla will want to start development on Killzone 4, right? Or maybe a whole new IP of some kind...
