Guerrilla Games clarifies the status of the Killzone franchise.
I'm sure Killzone 5 is being worked on partially as they finish Horizon and Rigs
Personally, I'd love another one for the Vita. I dunno why, but I just find playing some titles on a handheld to be more involving, or intimate - not sure what word I'm looking for, but yeah, you get it.
ughhh I really don't care for killzone...the whole franchise is mediocre to me and the only one that seemed to catch my eye was Killzone 2... Stuff like Horizon looks way cooler and I would rather see more orginal Ip's or even a sequel to Horizon because what I saw in that 3 minute demo had already a more interesting universe,more interesting looking characters, and better atmosphere than the past killzone's COMBINED......seriously so many sony fanboys over hype this generic FPS since killzone 3.....killzone shadow-fall felt like a glorified sc-fi COD to me....other than the little drone you had it was still a hardly used gameplay element that had so much potential. Please prove me wrong in saying Killzone shadowfall was not a great game,cause if that game is good I'm just gonna go out and say every COD game is a master piece too.......the only reason it's still around is because Sony executives want a fps to compete with Halo and they think Americas love anything that's fps...which I guess might be true with the way I see people praising killzone shadowfall it might be true!
Killzone shadowfall was mediocre, I liked the gameplay (especially use of the OWL) , story not so good but actually followable unlike say Destiny, COD, Battlefield games, also Halo 4(the story bored me to death) Fact is that the Killzone franchise is a success in multi-millions and as Hermen Hulst (one of Killzones head of devs) said, People who they newly employed actually wanted to work on Killzone shadowfall while the rest of the team worked on Horizon Also the Killzone franchise is different from other FPS especially Halo in my opinion. Its more dark humour with added comic effect (I mean listen to the dialogue of enemies in shadowfall) the game doesnt try to take itself seriously I also disagree Sony made Killzone to go against Halo if they did then why also make Resistance IP? They just needed FPS titles in their catalogue And I for one love Killzone's gameplay and atmosphere, the story of the Killzone universe does need a lot of work Plus the next Killzone is likely to be from Cambridge who did a great job with Killzone mercnary so I do want more Killzone
I'll prove your wrong. I loved shadow fall. From the graphics to the amazing soundtrack later in the game. Story was good. It's was a great ride. There you go proved you wrong.
I have a lot of respect for Killzone 2...it was easily one of the most unique shooters of last gen, and imo one of the very best...It stood on its own, didn't borrow from anything else (other than 'playing as a gun')...and the devs weren't afraid to make it feel completely different to other multiplayer games... which sadly is probably why it never took off to that unavoidable degree that CoD, BF, and Halo have/had... Killzone 3 was a huge let down for me...people whining about color, which i still will never understand...KZ2 is still one of the best looking games of all time to me)...and the whole thing going from a cinematic'ly appropriate filter emphasizing a lighting engine that is still more complex than some recent systems...to brown?...just bugged me, it was a sign of them giving in to people that really didn't care, just wanted their voices to be heard...Multiplayer suffered a similar fate, points flying around, speeding things up, and quickly getting way out of hand balance wise... Never played Shadow Fall...but from what i kept hearing it was the weakest of the 3, and if true i'll never bother...as i barely could find a reason to finish kz3...
@GameDev1 I don't think there is much wrong with the stories in the KZ games, the problem is in the story telling. As I've said before, a mediocre story told brilliantly, is better than a good story told badly.
Hopefully they learn alot more from this and K4 is even better than before.
Killzone is a meh game imo I rather they focus on different genre like they're doing with Horizon
i have enjoyed all killzones but i want to see what else such a talented team can make and i love the look of rigs and cannot wait for horizon.
They should reboot the killzone franchise.. nd keep it gritty please
Hopefully. Story-wise they could reboot it. MP-wise, keep it awesome!
I'd rather see their main team work on new things. Killzone needs a reboot or something I wouldn't mind a third person one, that might be pretty good.
IMO killzone 2 was the only one that was above mediocre for me....
Thanks for wasting both bubbles complaining.
I would say both k2 and k3 were above mediocre although k2 was pretty perfect as far as fps go (minus the story). The first was pretty subpar and shadowfall while mediocre still lead the industry in terms of graphics. Some of the new gameplay elements felt gimmicky but it was still fun.
Well they are working on something new now obviously but they should be allowed to delve back into the Killzone franchise that actually made them popular with fresh ideas I actually want a third person Killzone, the game would actually be better that way
I would like the third person aswell because it feels like they always try and get into the story side of things. Every Killzone game I hear something about the story which in the end the whole thing falls flat on it's face. For me I think it's because it's a FPS and you can't really connect with a character you can't see. The guy in Shadow Fall was boring as hell and so generic...I honestly can't even remember his name. Least with third person it allows them to do something a little bit like Uncharted, especially with other characters who are walking with you. I would like it if it was rebooted and focused on the start of the war like a retelling but instead of a soldier you play a woman who despite coming from a military background didn't want to fight...until now when she gets herself roped into the war and must survive. Throw in some heavy stealth gameplay at the start when she's less experience and close the game off with her putting her new skills she's learnt to use.
wonder if guerilla decides to end the series with killzone 4 with an endless high note like naughty dog is doing with uncharted. and bring tlou games out after that or new ip , obviously. and guerilla can continue with horizon 2, 3 man... this, U4 and TLG will be the big 3 this gen. okay until tlou2 comes out.
Nah, I think Guerrilla Cambridge will takeover the franchise and reboot it by 2017/2018.
Still have unmeasureable levels of hype for Persona 5 and Kingdom Hearts 3.
Sweet can't wait for more KZ.I have a feeling GC is making the next KZ title ;).
I've said this numerous times, guerrilla picked the wrong side to focus its story on, focus on the helgan uprising from an emphatic point of view someone who's torn apart about turning against the ISA but has to help his helgan blood..you can't create an iconic villain and create half ass stories for them... The ISA always reminded me of marcous fenix from gears so douchy and all they need to be taken down
I think they should reboot Killzone with a different writer. I liked Killzone especially Shadow Fall but I felt like the story could've been stronger with a better writer.
I really liked Shadow Fall too.
What would really draw people in, is playing as a helgast for once and seeing the story from their prospective. Don't make 90% evil to the core drones because they're struggle is commendable, they just want freedom. The ISA has been shown to be somewhat curropt so play that up a tad. The best villians are ones that even if you don't agree with them, you can understand them.
I read that cambridge are working on a new ( killzone?) as indicted from job postings. Rigs is not a multi million dollar franchise, and they are working on one. Rigs must be a 2nd team project, although im not sure.
Make is like Killzone 2 or don't bother...seriously.
yea - I loved the KZ2 style combat - they need to get back to "total war" with the helghast!!
Agreed. I need some epic battlefields. Plus the rail and electricity guns were amazing. Going through that sniper desert and crushing fools in a mech? Awesome.
Cool more Helghast is never bad, i hope they return to KZ2 style.
Glad to hear they're still keeping Killzone in mind! Love that series!
Giving Killzone a break is just what was needed, perhaps after Horizon, they may take a spin off Killzone title to new directions, to see just how it plays out, if not, make a Horizion sequel!
Seems to be the case with most forms of entertainment. I love The Venture Bros and I think one of the reasons all the season have been great, is because they step back every year. Instead of just putting out rehashes every year......wink wink.....I think studios need to flip flop to a new IP every so often Like Shu explained.
Yes!!! Thank you!!!! I Love Killzone and for one would love to see a Killzone 5 - like it to be a sequel to Shadowfall. Thank you Guerilla!I hope Guerilla Cambridge will be doing it as mentioned above by oneof the other posts. Either way I am stoked!
Sony's devs shouldn't be obligated to making only one franchise. This isn't Microsoft.
Great news , I played killzone sf for a year pretty much non stop , as back then(seems so long ago now! Lol) not many titles , thankfully the game was IMO excellent , as was the multi player , I still have it on disc , and I won't sell it.
Yeh, I stop playing around 6 months ago , only this last week getting back into it..... Wow, really great fun and so many updates ... Personally , by far my favourite MP experience this gen.
OT, but anyone here want to add me to an Aussie Clan ? Seems I'm always playing through servers in Japan and the US.... PSN is Rhythmattic
Day 1 - I loves me some Killzone! *bleep* < Headshot
New killzone and you play as helgan for a change
Not a bad idea considering the way Shadow Fall ended. I loved Stahl's speech at the end, so well done!
Killzone can wait. Horizon is the bees knees. Gimme dinosaurs.
Lol the bees knees you deserve an upvote.
Killzone 2 Remaster! They cant seem to top that one with all its sequels
I'm probably the only one but I thought shadow fall was better. Probably not topping three. 2 was the least favourite. Shadow falls gameplay was better with more open environments, and the zip you could make anywhere. The only down side is it was rushed and the story could have been better
I've never felt this franchise reached its full potential but enjoyed the last two entries quite a bit. I hope they keep trying new things with the series and maybe we will see what happens.
Give up on Killzone.... ShadowFall was pretty bad overall in my opinion. I enjoyed 2/3 but Shadowfall let me down a bit. The story was pretty decent, I liked playing stealth and admiring the amazing visuals. The multiplayer seemed like a step down from 2, I never played 3s multiplayer. Horizon looks phenomenal. Guerrilla Games is a talented studio and Horizon shows they can make other games that will be great. They should do other games instead. Atleast give Killzone a rest
What about a Killzone TPS? X3
Good because this is the only PS4 game I really want! I'm an Xbox fanboy.. I can't lie
please no more killzone, have cambridge make a new resistance instead
Killzone sf mp is great. I go with killzone for my fps fix. only fps that feels “adult”. Very war like, imho.
Killzone is unfortunately a series that, IMO has never really reached its peak/ potential. Whiles its good, it could be so much better. Hopefully when Guerilla returns to it, it'll make as a big an impact as Horizon did. For now, spread that creativity.
Pls stop the killzone franchise it is a horrible game.
Sony please stop Brisco, he has a horrible opinion.
There will be always room for another Killzone game in my heart.. There is not PlayStation without new Killzone game every now and then.. Sure many will agree with me..
I loved the story mode in Killzone 2 and 3. The graphics and gameplay were amazing. Killzone 3 was like playing in a movie. Multiplayer was best on Killzone 2 with those massive maps, sand flying all over, tarps moving in the wind etc. Killzone 3 multiplayer didn't like how linear and cod it played. Still, this and Resistance are still some of my favorite Sony Fps. I never liked halo, always thought that game was way overrated. Never got into gears multiplayer, but liked their story mode. I havent played call of duty since cod4. So yeah, I would love another killzone.
Killzone 2 remastered for ps4 it would be just epic
I like kilzone.I agree it should be like k3.I think they should continue the story from how three ended. I'd love to see another kilzone on the vita cut from the same cloth as three.a super long campaign as well.merCenaries was great. A 10.
I personally enjoyed the whole KZ series since they've come out. I hope they work on both.
Killzone gunplay is awesome. I have put more than 400 h on Shadow Fall. And it wasn't even as good as Killzone 2. Slower movement Weightness felling No aim assist One headshot -> dead! Lots of abilities and equipments Weapons unlocked from the beginning
Good news. My favorite shooter series is not dead!
Killzone is awesome, 3 of the last 4 Killzone's were fantastic and everyone wants the series dropped? Gtfo. Killzone 2, 3, and Mercenary were excellent and i personally enjoyed Shadowfall's sp, the Owl is Amazing and i liked the huge environments that allowed for multiple different tactical approaches. The mp is kick azz as usual. Shadowfall is also a beautiful game esthetically. I love the of wwII and Coldwar/Soviet aspects of the Helghast and the war, the Helghast are the best antagonists ever and Killzone 3 and Mercenary were highly underrated, Colonel Mael Radec and Scholar Visari were outstanding, the power struggle between Johan Stahl and Admiral Orlock was terrific. Mercenary was the most impressive technical achievement seen on VITA and the mp was FUN! Killzone is always beautiful, the guns are weighty and powerful, the Helghast kick azz, and the combat is excellent. The series doesn't necessarily need a reboot but a remake of the first Killzone would be perfect. A game with an entirely different perspective, from the Helghast point of view would be interesting, or playing as a Helghast mole dismantling the empire and turning on your former allies would be a nice. I love Killzone.
