A Warhawk 2 in the Near Future?

Earlier today, I sent to tweet Sony Santa Monica asking if they're considering a Warhawk 2. It could be that Sony Santa Monica meant to state this following phrase in a different way "We are not working on this game right now", but the "right now" part leads me to believe that they're possibly considering a Warhawk 2 sometime in the future, since they didn't say something along the lines of "We won't be making a Warhawk 2". Is there hope that a great game from the PS3 can have a sequel on the upcoming PS4 in the near future? (Next-Gen, PS3, PS4, Sony, Starhawk, Warhawk, Warhawk 2, Warhawk: Operation Broken Mirror, Warhawk: Operation Omega Dawn, Warhawk: Operation: Fallen Star)

Hard to tell

I really hope so,these games are some of the best multiplayer out there and have potential to become the best.It would be a shame to let them die out.

Only problem is that Dylan Jobe no longer works for sony after Starhawk.

I played warhawk for years vs literally days on starhawk.

They need to go back to warhawk style.
HammadTheBeast  +   375d ago
I agree, Starhawk was a very different game, and tried a bit too hard.

I played in the beta for a bit, and liked it, but the full release got very stale quickly.

The Build and Battle system just wasn't suited for the arcadey all out war battles of Warhawk.

Hopefully.Warhawk trumped Starhawk in every aspect.Warhawk was original, unique, epic and downright addictive.

Starhawk felt like a third person COD - in space.They need to go back to basics.
Linzoid  +   375d ago
Totally agree, I really couldn't get into Starhawk at all.

I really hope we see Warhawk 2 on PS4!
BitbyDeath  +   375d ago
Yes, i bought Starhawk but barely touched it after a week. Warhawk had me hooked for years.
Linzoid  +   375d ago
I still play Warhawk now, the community is amazing, loads of people still play
Knushwood Butt  +   375d ago
Yeah, played Warhawk for hundreds of hours.

Played the Starhawk beta a bit and I just never found it fun. End result being that I didn't buy it.
vickers500  +   375d ago
And get rid of the stupid build system. It was a neat idea, but it just doesn't really work too well.
KwietStorm  +   375d ago
-_- does Call of Duty have to be the scapegoat for everything that went wrong? Starhawk feels like COD in what way?
M-M  +   375d ago
A Warhawk 2 on the PS4 would be too epic, really hope it happens.

OH GOD YES! I was was just playing Warhawk the other day, and couldn't believe how well it aged and stood up against the test of time. And the 4 player split screen online vs others is/was awesome to, heck I shot down a hawk with a sniper rifle<<Epic Win
MysticStrummer  +   375d ago
Ohhh. Excuse me. I have to go change my shorts. Warhawk was so incredible. Several friends bought PS3s after they saw me playing it.
rajman  +   375d ago
Hope to god it happens! As much as I love Starhawk, it just didnt feel the same as Warhawk
BitbyDeath  +   375d ago
Title had me excited.
Warhawk 2 needs to happen, especially now we have video/image sharing.
punisher99  +   375d ago
Warhawk on the PS3 I consider to be one of the greatest online multiplayer 3rd person shooters of all time. Just down right addictive and chaotic battles are so much fun. Warhawk 2 on the PS4 would be downright amazing.

And you know what? We got 15 thousand Call Of Crap sequels in this generation. But yet we cant get one proper sequel to great games like Warhawk and Heavenly Sword. This generation of gaming is just so flawed and I hope next gen is better.

Ya warhawk is so unique not focused on realistic cinema bullshit but just a fun , fun game !!
Bathyj  +   375d ago
I want a REAL Warhawk sequel. And Im talking about to the PSOne game.

I know I'm in the minority because gamers now days need to deathmatch constantly, but I want a proper single player campaign, with huge aerial dog fights against a hundred ships and big motherships like they teased in the original PS3 Warhawk reveal trailer.

Theres no great games like this and since MS wont make a Crimson Skies sequel (whats up with that MS?) this game could fill a massive void in gaming.

Or, if you insist on just going the MP route again to appease the masses, then just reboot Colony Wars for me.
BitbyDeath  +   375d ago
Sorry i've gotta disagree. I'd rather a sequal to Warhawk (PS3). But hey if they could combine the single player of the PSOne version with the multiplayer of the PS3 version then i would not complain at all.
Godmars290  +   375d ago
And I want an open world Sky Gunner's title, a version of Front Mission which "borrows" from Xcom but uses a mobile base, and a Tenchu game set in a GTA-like environment.

...

God I need to learn how to make games. Then win millions of dollars to afford to make them the way I want.

@BitbyDeath:
Strafing floating battle ship. Causing to "sink" and crash to the ground in a fiery pyre.

Multiplayer games do not deliver that kind of gamer-orgasm.

You young folks don't even know what a gamer-orgasm is!

Godmars, you are a God and I bubble you as such.

For your obvious love of single player gaming, which youre right, offers experiences MP cant replicate, and your desire to see Tenchu resurface and return to former glory.

Seriously, why doesnt Sony just buy it and give it the AAA service its always deserved and never had. The first game was published by Sony Music after all.

In fact, now that I think about it, I'd prefer Naughty Dog with their best in the industry AI to do a Tenchu on PS4 than make another Uncharted for their next game.
joecanada  +   375d ago
Fine then the second game you make is wing commander 5 - deep space.
Godmars290  +   375d ago
"why doesnt Sony just buy it and give it the AAA service its always deserved and never had."

in no particular order:
- Current console cycle was rushed into. Starting tools just weren't at a proper level to support development.
- Over-focus on the FPS "experience".
- The failure of Japanese developers to adapt to the increased costs and demands of HD consoles. *flameshield* MS tossing money at them looking to exploit popularity while not really caring about results.
- Western PC devs taking the dev crown from the JP, but not wanting optimize for specific systems. Not being able to afford to, again, because excessive increased costs in efforts, resources and of course money.

Also, "AAA" gaming is seriously overrated. A PR term.
Bathyj  +   375d ago
To me AAA just means high production values, high overall quality. Thats all I want for Tenchu.

Its never had great graphics, great controls or camera. Good story or acting. I would love to see all these things brought up to speed.

Always had an awesome score though.
grassyknoll  +   375d ago
Warhawk is the one of the best multiplayer games ever. Starhawk had potential, but was far to unbalanced.
If they make a Warhawk 2 it won't be good. They wanted Starhawk to be the Warhawk 2 but it was terrible and the same thing will likely happen to Warhawk 2 which will end up making it looks more like a Starhawk 2.
BitbyDeath  +   375d ago
Starhawk was handled poorly. I doubt they'd make that mistake again.

KwietStorm  +   375d ago
Except Starhawk was very different, gameplay wise, so who told you they wanted it to be like Warhawk? Lol is there *ever* a time that you don't complain or give something a thumbs down? What's your deal?
Omar91  +   375d ago
I was super excited when I heard there would be another "hawk" game. Unfortunately star hawk felt to different from Warhawk. I never got into star hawk but Warhawk was my all time favorite ps3 game. Warhawk still stands as my most played game....Ever!

you can imagine how disappointed I was when star hawk did not live to my standards.

anyways I doubt Santa Monica is working on anything Warhawk related however I really hope they do in the future.
jukins  +   375d ago
yes please!!!! i still play warhawk till this day as for starhawk, while good, just didnt have that warhawk feeling.
telekeneticmantis  +   375d ago
DO NOT PLAY
WITH MY EMOTIONS LIKE THAT! I thought it was soe actual proof. Perhaps the best MP game on PS3 gettin a sequel? Please do it.

The question is who's gonna make it? No more Incognito...

WARHAWK, my favorite multiplayer game this gen. Arguably one of the BEST multiplayer games this gen! I was so let down by Starhawk... I'm glad that it didn't carry the Warhawk name, because it surely didn't carry its legacy. I appreciate Lightbox in their attempt to chart new territory. I truly do...But WARHAWK was magic. I think Warhawk deserves a PS4 outing. The blueprint is already there. Just build upon that. Sony please don't forget this marvelous IP. Please.

I was a ground player, usually taking guys down 3 at a time. My insignia was grenades because I was a beast with them!
I still remember the good o' days when my clan use to strategist hours before our clan match. My teammates would dominate in the sky and a few of us would dominate the ground. Best multiplayer game this gen hands down!

I hope warhawk 2 is being considered for the ps4. I loved warhawk for the ps3. When starhawk came out I was bummed because they changed the experiance. It is a great game.
MidnytRain  +   375d ago
I thought everyone liked Starhawk when it released? lol
BitbyDeath  +   375d ago
Nope.

-No medpacks (stupid regen health)
-Weapons required structures to be placed
-Vehicles required structures to be placed
-Maps were flat (no structures due to build and battle system)
-Knife became a cheap R3 jab rather than an actual weapon
-No small maps
-Animations holding up the action (destroy turrets/knife/etc)
-No 'true' Zones mode
-No flamethrower
-Weapons unbalanced
-Weapon switching didn't work properly
-Buildings generally making everything unbalanced
-Hawk didn't operate as well
-Hog was too big to dodge
-No jeep
-No 4 player splitscreen
-Graphics not as clean
-No stealth
-Rank listed as numbers instead of titles
-Customisation not as frequent/exciting
-Sniper rifle had a stupid laser scope which made it pointless to use
-Rifle was weak

Just to name a few

actually small maps are now active in the new free dlc. I find it just as nice to play than war hawk but with far better graphics and sound..
imsocool1234  +   375d ago
Well, why don't you fans make a suggestion to SCE Santa Monica Studio and give your input.

If you guys don't make your voices heard, it won't happen!
M-M  +   375d ago
That's what a lot of the Youtube community is trying to do. Dylan Jobe has acknowledged it, and I'm pretty sure Sony Santa Monica has as well.
punisher99  +   375d ago
And just how do you suggest we do that? :)
imsocool1234  +   375d ago
Make a petition, contact Sony and or post suggestions on SSM's forum?
Sarobi  +   375d ago
WarHawk was one of the fist few games I had gotten for PS3, it holds a special place in my gaming heart. I do hope a true WarHawk sequel happens on PS4

Warhawk 2 would be a great way to show off multiplayer for the ps4 :D

Warhawk and Battlefield BC2.

most fun I had this generation :D

if it comes out on PS4 and flying a warhawk is fluid like in Warhawk and not Starhawk...
I will die as a happy man haha...
Adolph Fitler  +   375d ago
Wow, a lot of hate for Starhawk... I thought Starhawk was a far better, waaaaay more fun game than Warhawk.
Either way, I would love a Warhawk 3 (as everyone seems to be forgetting that Warhawk was originally a PS1 title).

Yeah i prefer Starhawk anyday but thats just me. As a matter of fact after a brief hiatus i will be diving back into that this weekend.
DJ  +   375d ago
Starhawk had a boring low budget campaign that I easily cheated by stocking up on orbs and equipment before triggering the battles. Multiplayer was a baren wasteland where campers took advantage of static spawn points.

On the other hand, warhawk is still an incredible game to play. Fast paced, energetic, and great balance. Just needs 64 vs 64 players.
