At Sony's gamer day today it has been confirmed that Killzone 2 will be released in February 2009. 4:40 BST Killzone 2 will be released in February 2009.
We knew this was going to happen, even though some of us were holding on to the idea that it would make it out in late 2008. As long as it's polished and kicks ass... I can wait a few extra months.
Resistance 2>KillZone 2,I'd rather buy the former than the latter coming into late 2008! Early 2009?Killzone 2 will be mine
Woah that is a lot later than I expected. I exxpect this is partly due to dev problems and partly due to the fact that Hype is much greater around Resistance 2
I guess we won't be seeing the KZ2 vs. GeoW2 throwdown we were all expecting/hoping for. It's a minor loss to the PS3's 2008 line-up, but there are still enough potentially-great games coming out that it shouldn't really matter. Sort of like how I was almost happy GTA4 was delayed last October because I had enough upcoming 360 games to worry about the rest of the year.
o well, a lot of other good games coming out this year to keep me occupied
I think we all knew this is going to happen, i just wish they were more honest about it, we are not idiots.
The only one I got wrong was MGS4, which I doubt will be delayed now
Its probally for the best, i mean they have 2 major shooters coming out this year anyway (socom and resistance), so it would be stupid to release them close to each other.
I never knew they had a set date before this announcement. So therefore its not delayed as some might want to think. Samething happened with a few other games. The devs say "were aiming for fall or winter" doesnt mean its an exact date. So for those who are hating just play your box and be happy. No need to complain.
That's a LOOONNNGGG time from now haha... But I dont mind as long as the game rocks.
Resistance 2 is launching this year You wont be buying 2 games in the same year in the same year would you I am looking forward to R2 with 60 player online and 8 player co-op KZ2 is releasing in FEB 2009....so thats at the very beginning of next year No complains here
Im glad it got pushed to feb. Gives Guerilla time to polish the game and gives people more time to play other Triple As like Little big planet, Resistance 2, Motorstorm 2, WHITE KNIGHT CHRONICLES, Tekken 6 and more. Play beyond.
youre comment makes no sense. "You wont be buying 2 games in the same year in the same year" besides the point tht you repeated yourself, why wouldnt you buy two games in an entire year? ive already bought maybe 10 or so this year. explain?
I was hoping to have this game this year. Oh well, Resistance 2 & Gears of War 2 should keep me occupied until then. Maybe by next February, we'll only be 9 months away from HOME being released...in open beta form, lulz. J/K
Very smart and strategic move from Sony Computer Entertainment and Guerilla Games. This gives them more than sufficient time to ensure that the final product is polished and will undoubtedly surpass the standards that have been set since E3 05. With the stellar lineup of games for 2008, Killzone 2 falls under the long term security Sony has placed which gives the PLAYSTATION® 3 the proper model of consistency. Sony is thinking long term and this is why they are still the industry leaders today with over 100 million Playstation units sold. $niper
Killzone 2 has a lot to live up to, Sony wants this done right...Everyone will be looking at this one
They never announced a release date so why are people already saying "Delaystation"? Killzone 2 was never delayed you moron. They NOW have an official release date and it would've been stupid to release so close to Resistance 2.
however i still wanted it to play it this year but I understand to release it a month or so near Resistance, they would eat into each other. we still have resistance, haze and SOCOM for shooters this year.
I think there calling it a delay because Sony tried to give the impression it was coming this year to steal 360 thunder as usual and Sony fans like yourself kept bragging about a list that won't even make it until maybe next year or 2010! From the look of it most of the PS3 games that are hyped won't even be out for a year or two and 360 might have more games out this year lol! MS has played it smart by not over promising the world and making false hype! It's so funny to watch PS3 fans get what they deserve this year and thats maybe 3 exclusives for all the bad mouthing they put on 360 fans this year! MS show is coming soon and I bet it generates more buzz because people are tired of hearing about delays and the same games over and over again! RFOM2 should be an ok game but to be honest I don't think it's going to live up to the hype kind of like MGS4 won't graphically! PS3 has been a mess this entire year and I don't see how any of you keep falling for the same hype and power crap!
Sony has been hyping this game for over 3 years. Remember the CGI video at E3? How can it take that long? We will have 2 Gears of War games on the xbox in less time. I liked Resistance but come on. I love shooters but where are the good exclusive PS3 shooters? This better be some kind of good because it has been labeled the "XBOX Killer". That may be because when it comes out, there will already be another xbox.
it got delayed because they dont wanna watse a game by releasing r2 and kz2 in the same time frame, think about everybody not going to buy both, plus kz2 can use more optimization due to the great in-game graphics its using EDIT-yo dark sniper i think i seen you online playing gta4 do you remember seeing begxforxmercy
was hopin' to see it this year, but oh well. Will be burnin' up Resistance 2.
thats part of the reason, so you can enjoy Resistance 2, you cant just put 2 AAA shooters in the same Holiday, it just wont sell.
@ 9.1 I beg to differ.... If all three are coming out around x-mas time, I WILL BUY!!! LOL It'll sell, just like I'll end up buying Gears II and R:II. But I do agree that from a corporate decision point, that it's better to not "BLOW YOUR LOAD" all during x-mas. It's better to ride a continuous high all the way through 2010 as Kill Zone 2 and FFXIII will both be scheduled for next year..... not to mention God of War III. Man, it's good to be a PS3 owner.
Resistance2 will hold me over
Next year is fine with me, I wonder what news games will be announced at E3 and TGS for the NGC.
HAHAHA february sounds like a perfect date for more delays. It happens all the time; if a game is scheduled to release before christmas, they will usually try their hardest to release it, no matter how unfinished it is. If a game is put to Q1 it often slips past because there's not really much loss in releasing it a couple of months late. Maybe killzone can make it out before home though LOL
Let RFoM2 shine for a while.
well i gotta say the game better kick some serious A$$. That will be 3 games insomniac churns out to the one GG will be churning out. the game better be good.
Wow that's a long wait.
there is nothing on that GARBAGE BOX 360 for 2008 and beyond MGS4/MOTORSTORM/LBP/SOCOM/RES ISTANCE2/WKS are all launching this year Unlike 0 games on GARBAGE BOX 3 FIX ME ---not to mention that 3 FIX ME has crappy games like TOO CRAP/FEEBLE/UNREAL TARDY GAYERS2 and all other garbage games
I'm surprised this clown has 6 bubbles too, let's gang up Sony Soldiers! hahahahaha
Dude, why are you guys getting so offended over nothing? All he said was "Wow, that's a long wait." It IS a long wait! I own a 360 but I wanted to see Killzone too because I liked the first one on PS2. Having to wait till next year IS a long wait.
Sony still has the better line-up, just not by as much now 360's 09 line-up will be a joke compared to PS3's
SONY still has the better line-up MGS4 alone is bigger than all XFIX ME games combined MGS4/MOTORSTORM/LBP/SOCOM/RES ISTANCE2/WKS are all launching this year
Sony still has a better 08 line up and it doesnt even have killzone 2. The best looking game on consoles. That says alot
Five months into 2008 and all I see is an amazing line up for gamers that don`t shut themselves up to one console only....This news from sony only helps this fact, even if we have to wait for KZ 2 a little longer. The beauty of choice, the beauty of financial freedom, working and not living of of an allowance.
Pretty much Kz2 + FFXIII where the main bullet points for the "Year of the Ps3" so much for that lmao. Now all they have is resistance 2 which will be destroyed by Gears 2, Little Kid Planet, and a GT:Demo. You know Sony's Line-up is trash when they say their top 5 games and they include a Demo and Haze lol.
Arie, man, just shut up. Please shut up.
What happened to Arie using rationale and sensibility, he's become retarded faster than PP.
Resistance 2 shall dominate the FLOPbox 360's 2008 line-up, while Killzone 2 shall dominate the FLOPbox 360's 2009 line-up! 37 days until Judgment Day, Nazisoft! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
By February 2009 I'll have moved to Australia and will no longer have my PS3 :(
It's iight, I'll enjoy Haze,Socom,and RS2!
I guess they really mean May-July 2009. Don't kid yourselves, you know this will probably get delayed again. Sony and all other gaming companies need to say TBA until they are absolutely sure about the date.
"delayed again" again huh? I still dont understand where exactly anyone got the previous release date from, Sony have never stated a solid release date other than "hopefully 08". All the release dates come from 3rd party speculation. Feb 09 is the FIRST official release date.
Actually, it's strange, last year some of the big exclusives for PS3 in 2008 were GT5 FF XIII KZ2 and now there's Resistance 2 Motorstorm 2 LittleBigPlanet as well so it's sill a GREAT lineup, but a lot of games that have been anticipated since BEFORE the console's launch are _still_ not released, and some are getting sequels?! I can see that if Killzone 2 is _not_ THE most graphically impressive game we've ever seen when it comes out, it is going to be ridiculed. Hence the delays I guess ;)
How things that never even have an official release date get called "delayed" the moment an OFFICIAL date is announced.
but one thing bothers me is how the hell SONY will sell this game in non-busy month? any idea thanx
I knew KZ2 would be delayed as soon as SOCOM got a 9/16 release date and Insomniac suprised us with a late '08 date for Resistance2. With HAZE in May and MGO in June, I think I'll manage. Can't wait to play as a Chimera in R2 though!
This debunks that rumor about killzone 2, despite being ready or not have a release date in '08. I really want to see that brief killzone 2 footage though.
personally, i don't mind it one bit. my shooter needs are good for 2008.
Finally, a release date. Feb aint to bad for me, its a little longer than I wanted to wait, but still there are already plenty of games in Q4 to keep me going. Dropping KZ2 and FF in the first quarter would be the perfect way to kick off 2009.
you forgot god of war 3
I agree February is a great time to release KZ2...RFOM2 will just fill that gap perfectly. but I just dont think we will be seeing FF13 in Q1 of 09 I think it will be like KZ2 and GOW3..and FF13 will be in the fall of 09..and GT5 will probably get an April release date.
Danja, PD have stated that the full GT5 is over a year away :( Spartan, Dindt forget it bro, just cant see it making Q1, but thats another title like KZ2 that I'm happy to wait for.
Oh I see....well my bad... But GOW3 should see a march release ..im just basing this off the fact that ...the last two in the series has been released in March....but if not then im guessing a fall 09 release date along with FF13... btw what about 8days , The Getaway 3 , Heavy Rain and LA Noire ? plus we haven't heard ne thing from Naughty Dog....so 09 is looking bright also..
good move from sony. the line up for 08 is already excellent with Resistance 2 and socom at the end of the year and LBP too. now they better come up with something huge!!! seriously, something really big including online play and single campain
That's fine with me, among Metal Gear Solid 4, SOCCOM: Confrontation and Resistance 2 I'll be content till KillZone 2 comes out.
I doubt that Resistance 2 will be far better than Gears of War 2.
maybe not, but then there's plenty more games like LBP, Socom, MGS4 (yeah baby!!), Motorstorm 2, White Knight Story, Haze, Tekken 6, Valkyria Chronicles and on and on and on
Feb 2009 will be perfect.
That a pretty ridiculous dev time like we saw the first trailer in 2005 and I'm assuming there was creative development before that so I'd imagine KZ2 has been in development for 5 years now. So the question is who will reign supreme KZ2, R2 or GeOW2. Considering the latter two have only been in development max 2 years KZ2 better freaking blow me away.
I agree, 5.5 years of development time better blow me away.
GG are making more than just a game, they're creating a "future proof" engine that will be exclusive to Sony. To sony this is much much more than just one game.
Just so you know. Fishy fingers is also correct. Some of t he technology that we are experiencing in games like Uncharted's Streaming Technology was developed by GG. GG is no longer just GG but pretty much an umbrella of Sony Development.
it was a smart move, i mean with the last quarter packed with promising titles, it would have been foolish of them to jam the fall 2008 and have nothing big after x-mas
My guess is KZ2 -> Sep 2009 Motorstorm 2 -> Feb 2009 FF XIII -> 2010 GT5 -> Dec 2009 Eight Days -> Nov 2009 The Getaway will be released along with Duke Nukem Forever
some harsh guesses there son
... hopefully it's worth the excruciatingly long wait eh? By the time all those poster-boy titles come out (killzone2, LBP, Home) everyone might be able to
