Just recently, Killzone: Shadow Fall’s director, Steven ter Heide, announced that he just left Guerrilla Games to start something new.
Best of luck, my friend.
Shadow Fall was really fun. Hopefully he does well in the future.
Pretty sure he's not your friend, but yeah best of luck to him.
You're right, my friend, but what does it matter?
We go way back, what are you talking about? Oh wait, nevermind, you're just criticizing someone's form of speech.
Apparently that one went over people's heads. Lmao
This N4G. The entire comment section is probably consists of 3 guys posting under 10 accounts so you're probably his friend too.
Honestly, not that worried, I never liked killzone, always was just a meh shooter, so much more impressed with horizon, so maybe it means GG will be going in a new direction. I would love another new IP or even a sequel to horizon would be great too. They are down to 1 studio (not to say only one game necessarily) so would be much happier to see killzone go away than another new IP or horizon sequel.
Kz 2 was one of the best mp fps of last gen, it pained to see 3 and shadow fall be so limited in size compared to 2. I did have fun in SF mp, need to play campaign one day... Killzone single player has always been ok, nothing great but not bad. I thought K12 was terrible, 2 was great, 3 was alright
That is the problem with gaming, people will just take their opinion and say something that solely benefits them while thinking of no one else. What about the million people who do like Killzone? I get it, you don't like it which is fine but wishing a developer stop making a game that loved by many is just ignorant. Killzone definitely needed a break and I happy they are even if Horizon did poorly. Shadowfall had a great MP but the SP was the first Killzone to lack in the SP part. It was the only one I just couldn't finish. I really should go back to it but I already sold it, so maybe when it comes to PS+.
I liked Killzone 2 best out of the four KZ games we got. Especially the MP. I enjoyed the campaigns of all four games but I couldn't really play the MP in Shadow Fall because for some weird reason it gave me headaches. I never gotten that from other games but after 20 minutes of Shadow Fall my head would start pounding.
@mad Geez, you are quite the hypocrite. You whine because I said I prefer they focus on new IPs or a horizon sequel rather than more killzone, an claim I have to change my opinion because you like killzone? No thanks, you clearly are living in some superiority complex or something.
Oh this is awful...I really really wanted a Shadow Fall sequel just like the first one. I'm tearing up inside /s
Good riddance was my thoughts as well.
He was also a design manager on H:ZD, producer on KZ2/Liberation (best 2 in the franchise). Good riddance? No need to be a d***. He's done plenty of good for GG over the years. A little appreciation wouldn't go amiss. So fickle.
Yeah...I agree. Why shit on the guy for one mediocre game?
My 3 favorite installments in the KZ franchise are 3, Mercenary, & 1; I hated 2 and really disliked Shadow Fall but I hope he does well elsewhere.
Yeah, I'm sure you've contributed so much more to the industry... /S
@Fox i dont get you sarcasm ...i didnt like any in particular KZ game ....but i consider KZ ShadowFall far better than the previous ones.....
Killzone 2 is still the best imo... Shadowfall was meh. It was a fine launch game, that's it.
I actually do and many other people want it as well, you don't need to be a prick about it or about him leaving, the man did his job and KZ:SF was a good game. Show some respect!
It's clearly not a popular opinion, but yeah I thought shadow fall was one of the worst killzone entries in the series Edit: didn't know he worked on horizon as well so clearly he had talent. I still stand by my statement about shadow fall being mediocre XD
I'm in a bad mood one of you disagrees tell me why and I will tell you why you are wrong
You are not wrong... I didn't enjoy it that much as I hoped.
The SP was very lacking but the MP was really fun, you need to understand what each class did and make sure you used it the right way. If you didn't you will get spawn camped which happened often but that was because people would camp and not PTFO. One of the most important classes was the class that can deploy a respawn for your teammates. If your team didn't do that than you probably would be getting spawn camped. Killzone 2 is the pinnacle of the series easily.
Right? Thank you Mr-dude, and madforaday.
Hey, stop with that insulting joke. He was with GG for 12 years. The guy have been worked on HZD and KZ2/Liberation.
I don't know if I've ever seen you post a comment where you weren't complaining or just being negative.
I didn't like Shadow fall. I only liked Killzone 2
Killzone 2 was a masterpiece that will be incredibly hard to surpass. Killzone 3 was ruined by COD fanboys that wouldn't even play Killzone in the first place.
I remember them wanting KZ2 to play like CoD as well. To the point that sadly, KZ3 lost its identity.
Killzone 3 campaign was really good I thought. I didn't care for its mp, killzone 2 was a great campaign and mp.
Yep I was addicted to KZ2 multi-player, until Bad Company 2 released.
Killzone 2 MP was damn good. 3 had its MP butchered by COD fanbase demands.
He was a Producer on that too, the headline only mentions one thing he worked on looking for hits. C'mon guys
KZ2 was and still is the best KZ. Waiting for it to return to it's glory.
All the best for the future. I've played every single Killzone game, and loved every single one of them, and Horizon Zero Dawn was absolutely amazing. Thank you for all your hard work, it is much appreciated.
Agreed. Don't understand why people demonize an entire franchise because they didn't care for the MP. It's only one component of the entire KZ universe. Loved all the campaigns.
Awe I was hoping he would stick around for the next killzone game.
I really loved kz1. I hope they find someone worthy to take the helm.
What the fucks a shakespeare?
A masterpiece you Albert Einstein.
Even a monkey can write Shakespeare, given enough time.
DId you guys that are trashing him actually click the link, I promise it isn't that long of a read. All departures aren't some negative experience sometimes people have reasons for leaving and can leave on friendly terms. Read the tweets they're still on good terms sometimes you can overthink things this seems simple he wants to venture out but is still on good terms with his former studio/colleagues
Good luck man, you gave us some great games but people change paths in video game industry often so this isn't surprising
Couldn't take all the Horizon love lol
All the best of luck to him, I really enjoyed Killzone: SF.
And I just bought Killzone: Shadow Fall
Hmm interesting was he working on a project that wasn't Horizon? Or was he just delegated to support status on the it after Shadow Fall.
Shadow Fall was one of those games so boring and repetitive I couldn't force myself to complete it. Killzone 2 was the only good game in the entire series.
Kz3 was Good imo but 2 was amazing
3 was actually my favorite of the series.
Thank you for the hard work & best of luck for what's to come!
I'am living in the Netherlands and i love that Guerrila has a status in the developersworld. They are one of the best out there. I wish Steven van der Heide, the best an hope that he still be developing games. Jij en Guerrila hebben Nederland toch op de kaart gezet. En daar heb ik veel respect voor. Het heeft jongeren in Nederland ook gestimuleerd om gamedeveloper te worden. Veel succes, Steven het gaat je goed.
I'm moving to the Netherlands from America (my girlfriend lives in Arnhem). When I visited in April we did a canal tour in Amsterdam and passed by Guerilla Games office :3
This was the only Killzone I couldn't finish because of the difficulty. I had no trouble with the trilogy. It's a shame because I was really enjoying the story.
That series wasn't good anyway
This is just sad, he should work for microsoft for a brighter future
Best of luck to him.
Out of all fps I've played I preferred KZ's physics the most. I'm currently stuck on RB6 Siege lately though. Can't wait for the next installment to both franchises.
It was launch title, Jesu Christ. Give the guy a break.
Didn't like SF campaign much looked great though. Killzone 2 was amazing all around but playing 3s campaign actually got me hooked on the series!!
