Sh!t so many games for the PS3 I have to choose from AAA titles.
I'm looking forward to this one too. Have to se it. Warhawk is great.

I JUST JIZZED IN MY PANTS!!

lol Just kidding but that is a great name and I'm glad Incog is continuing their work with one of the most frentic online multiplayer games I've ever played. But I was also looking forward to a nextgen debut of War Of The Monsters. Oh well.

i guess im the only one
who want people to stop doing this. it would have been better to find out when sony announced it.

if these guys dont stop doing this there going to make a law
Stubacca  +   1954d ago
Nah man
I'm glad to hear about this now! It's great news for the Warhawk Community.

I'd love a space shooter in the vein of Star Wars Starfighter/Battlefront!
Chubear  +   1954d ago
This may just have a Single player campaign too. WoW! Not a big WH fan but if this has SP, I'm all over it for sure.
ThanatosDMC  +   1954d ago
Hmmm... flight in space might end up being that other mode of flight... I like flying my warhawk on the default mode. I cant wait to find out more about this game! Give us lots of people, lots of vehicles, lots of weapons, lots of bigger ships! Fighters (warhawks/starhawks), Frigates (dropships or whatever), cruisers, mechs, tanks, turrets, etc!

Warhawk 2 needed not Starhawk
As a diehard Warhawk fan, Warhawk 2 is needed rather than Starhawk. Space gameplay will be significantly different to Warhawk.

Warhawk is now a brand name synonymous with awesome online experience - for those who know the game well.

It's not a perfect game but it's one of the best MP online out there. But it can also definitely be improved with a sequel - not taken into space.

I'd like to see Warhawk 2 remain land based but now a FPS with sprint, roll, climb function, more weapons and vehicles(make the look more awesome), epic maps AND bots, bots, bots. And even make it 64 players online.

If Starhawk is Warhawk in space then SONY will be starting a new franchise. Think of it as being so.

Watch...
People will come here trying to say Starhawk is just a ripoff of Starfox... -_-"
rockleex  +   1954d ago
Will there be...
Zero gravity maps?

That would be awesome! It would be kind of like the battle rooms from the book Ender's Game. >:D

@QuackPot
no man no need FPS. if you played Star Wars Battlefront 2 it's saome way very similar with Warhawk. (personally i want online only SW:BF3 like Warhawk) i'm now Major on Warhawk and very excited hearing this StarHawk i hope it's goes way of the Warhawk not freaking fps.

Only Buck Rogers is a NPC and you control his buddy Hawk with the funny helmet.

It will be great for this game to see the light of day only on the PS3 as Sony never fails to deliver. 2009 is shaping up to be a good year for the PS3 with a dose of Uncharted 2, Tales Of Vesperia, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, M.A.G, Infamous, God Of War 3 and superior multi-platforms. Microsoft can do nothing but constantly buy mediocre third-party games and exclusive DLC. I feel sorry for the mind controlled butthurt Xbots.

It is clear that PS3 is the choice for true gamers who wish to have best gaming experience with free online that will soon make Xbox Live bend down.

Keep suffering Xbots, Microsoft will do nothing but make you suffer even more. Me and my fellow droids will enjoy the sight.

Yep.... we got another EXCLUSIVE PS3 GAME!!!!!!
Karum  +   1954d ago
Oh snap!
Sequel to Warhawk set in space!

I'm hoping for a single player campaign with this one too, assuming ofc it is a Warhawk sequel.
QuackPot  +   1954d ago
SP not needed
Warhawk is well known now as a MP only game.

Time should be spent on perfecting MP/Coop online rather than SP.

Plus if a sequel gets clever bots then SP not needed at all - just awesome weapons, vehicles and epic maps.
Jampy151  +   1954d ago
sniping while using a jet pack in space will be cool
Max Power  +   1954d ago
yeah...
it makes you wonder how they are going to alter the weapons, lasers?
Microsoft Xbox 360  +   1954d ago
This only means another exclusive for the PS3. DAMN Sony!
Microsoft Xbox 360  +   1954d ago
It gets worse for the 360 Xbot camp everyday. For every time they say wait, the PS3 gets another exclusive game. HAHA.

Keep waiting for E3 you retarded Xbots.
Dmack79  +   1954d ago
STARHAWK
I can see it already. I hope we get a glimps of it at E3. All the good games seem to only be on the PS3.

I almost feel bad for the blind 360 fanboys. But then I remember that they are perfectly content with their pathetic DLC. Too bad that's all they are getting this year...unless microsoft can pull out another generic futuristic space shooter.

Please Sony go easy, the xbots are still crying out for decent exclusive announcement from M$... :D
games4fun  +   1954d ago
what i want
add a cover system that would be awesome, as well as a star wars battlefront sort of homebase for online play with 40-60 players and a single player campaign
SlyGuy  +   1954d ago
Honestly
I do not want a cover system. I have a feeling it may slow down the frantic pace of the game.
QuackPot  +   1954d ago
If a warhawk sequel...
...cover system doesn't work as the gameplay is too fast and you usually get wasted by grenades, binoculars or warhawks and vehicles.
games4fun  +   1954d ago
dont worry at E3
they will announce another game is going multiplatform and it will be the talk of the show completely ignoring all the exclusives the other two companies announced and acting like a multiplat is better
Microsoft Xbox 360  +   1954d ago
So true. They don't have exclusive games to call their own anymore so they resort to back a multiplatform game instead. LOL. Man it sucks to be an Xbot.

the only game i could think of losing exclusivity would be MGS because Sony doesn't publish that one. But I dont know if Kojima would go back to DVD9 just to please the xbots.

Other than that game, every single AAA game slated for 2009/2010 is Published by Sony.

God Of War III - Santa Monica / Sony
Infamous - Sucker Punch / Sony
Heavy Rain - Quantic Dream / Sony
Gran Turismo 5 - Polyphony Digital / Sony

Warhawk in space!!! WOOT!
Says you  +   1954d ago
Did I read that correctly that part of incognito is
Going to break up and form up a new studio wouldn't that mean Sony has 21 studios?.
heyheyhey  +   1954d ago
part of Incognito DID break up, they formed a new studio called Lightbox Interactive... they are not owned by Sony, but are contracted to make PS3 exclusive games i.e second party

their debut title is heavily rumored to be a follow up to Warhawk set in space... this trademark is undoubtedly that game and will be shown at E3 most likely
bob saget remix  +   1954d ago
yep
it sure does
OmarJA  +   1954d ago

Dmack79  +   1954d ago
WOOT!
Warhawk in space is going to be absolutely EPIC!!!!!! Sony has been announcing so many games this year and we haven't even reached E3 yet.

I hope they still have enough surprise announcements for E3. But either way, Sony is sure having another awesome year!
RareNimbus  +   1954d ago
Warhawk in space is going to be hella cool. cant wait for that to happen.

Warhawk is probably the greatest MP game I've ever played
Blitzed  +   1954d ago
I agree...
I have to agree with you Meus, no matter what game is released I always come back to Warhawk.

I just dont undertsand what happened to the Falling Star CTF servers!

Yep.
This game wasted a year of my life. I can't believe I spent 450 hours playing it (and might actually come back). GTA San Andreas is the second, with 80+ hours.
RareNimbus  +   1954d ago
totally agree with ya, Warhawk is a fun game, I always go back to it when i'm tire of other games.
QuackPot  +   1954d ago
Agreed
It is the only game I regularly play and use it as a standard for most games.

That's why I am a major critic of the stupid spawn flare and no spawn zones in Killzone 2, because I'm comparing the gameplay to Warhawk. Near perfection.

All Ps3 developers should learn from Warhawk the fundamentals that any game should have for online MP.

Anything to further the best new online MP this gen is more than welcome to me!

The scope it would give the team for gameplay is immense and with the fantastically deep experience we already have this could be incredibly good.

The only things missing last time out were a slight graphical boost and a SP element-if we get that this time then Sony will have a very big hit on their mits. Still loving the Warhawk, who doesn't?
remanutd55  +   1954d ago
lol
warhawk 2??? im sold already lol
peeps  +   1954d ago
looking frwd 2 this even though i really didn't get on well with the first game, mainly didn't like the whole auto-aim system + graphical style wasn't really my thing e.g. tanks looked really odd.

a warhawk set in space could be really cool though with space stations and big ships that u can board while dogfights are going on all around. could be pretty epic.

Bu bu but teh cell.
Bu bu but teh blu-ray
Bu bu but i knew john bubba would save him.

Warhawk in space, flying from planet to planet, playing different maps depending on which planet you goto multiplayer, having battles in space.

I'd love that:)
I Win  +   1954d ago
That would mean that Sony has 21 studios since
Part of incognito is breaking calling it LightBox.
BlackIceJoe  +   1954d ago
I hope Starhawk has a story mode and Starkhawk sell well. So next Sony can give the green light for a next gen HD version of Colony Wars.

Both games could have an awesome story mode and multi-player.
Etseix  +   1954d ago
omg! salespersons calling at the door <_< lol jk
starhawk for me sounds like --star=galaxy, hawk= warhawk, if this is a warhawk game based on the space like starcraft, ill be shi*ng in my pants :l

"Dylan Jobe set up a new studio called Lightbox, to move away from Incognito and Warhawk."

So there is another first Party studio for Sony.
RareNimbus  +   1954d ago
more studios means good for SONY gaming.
Jaces  +   1954d ago
Oh god, my wallets growing thin....but I love it. :D
Figboy  +   1954d ago
i was hoping that
"Warhawk in Space" would translate to "Colony Wars PS3", but hey, if Starhawk is indeed "Warhawk in Space," then i'm all for it.

Warhawk was the game that got me into playing online more than i did before (i was a 99% single player 1% online player, now i'm a 85% single player gamer, 15% single player gamer, thanks to Warhawk, Resistance 2, and Killzone 2).

Maybe they'll up the battles to 40 instead of 32. if the space settings are as varied as what we've seen in the ship segments of Ratchet and Clank Future: TOD, then i'm really excited.

outer space is one of my favorite settings, and not many games have gone there in a way that i really like (excepting Ratchet and Clank and Mass Effect, which have two very different, equally fantastic takes on what's beyond our known solar system).
