Could Sony's Surprise Exclusive Be A Warhawk Sequel?

Gary A Swaby of TheKoalition.com writes: The Internet is buzzing about Sony's new exclusive that is about to be revealed soon. Many people figured it must be Resistance 3, or something coming from Insomniac as they have announced that they are working on two new games. However Insomniac themselves have denied that Sony are going to reveal any of their titles. This leads me to believe that the game could possibly be a sequel to the 2007 online action title, Warhawk.

For weeks now there have been hints that a new Warhawk game is being worked on by Incognito entertainment, mainly from our good friend HipHopGamer. It is beginning to make more sense for a Warhawk sequel to be revealed at this point, as the first one was well received. It has now been nearly three years since the first game, so a new revamp of the franchise would be more than welcomed. From what I got from hearing people talk about the possibility of a Warhawk 2, it seems they want to push a single player campaign as well as the online multi-player portion.

With Insomniac shutting down any idea of a product form their shop getting revealed, and Killzone 3 likely to not be revealed for some time. Warhawk 2 for the Playstation 3 makes the most sense to me at this point. I could be wrong, but regardless I am sure I am right in saying that there is a new Warhawk on the way. Only time will tell, be sure to tune in to Gametrailers TV to find out what Sony's secret will be. (PS3, Warhawk, Warhawk 2)

This is what's wrong with the gaming news media.
It speculates far too much. Can't just sit back, wait for announcements while looking into what actual news has been release, and in general speculate.
Mr_Bun  +   1947d ago
I am part of that problem...I get sucked into the speculation articles all the time
knifefight  +   1947d ago
Seriously. Seems articles like "Is Company X Developing THIS Game?" or "Will B outsell A in December?" get more love than their real news equivalents oft times, heh.
vhero  +   1947d ago
come on people its a surprise would a warhawk sequel be a surprise?? or any of these other games touted lately like twisted metal etc?? No they wouldn't as there been rumours for months. The point of a surprise is you never saw it coming. So think out the box.. That's why I think they got a deal for Timesplitters 4 or something similar.
Godmars290  +   1947d ago
Yeah, and we've got nth+ articles about nothing. Its the same mentality that's keeping ApocalyPS3 in the news, gave it a name, 3 times longer than it lasted.
DaTruth  +   1947d ago
And when a really technical article, like DF's GOW3 AA gets posted, it gets no love and there are five dudes in the comments saying "screw all this technical mumbo jumbo!"

I actually had a good conversation about Alan Wake in a Gow3 thread, because it actually came up in conversation and wasn't brought up by some trolling fanboy!

Tech articles make for the best comments section!

Godmars290...I was thinking the exact same thing before I clicked the link. Nobody has any idea of what it's going to be or if it's something anyone is even going to get excited about, but that doesn't stop anyone from throwing out any idea that would hold water. Here's an idea, why don't we just wait and see what it is and then we can all talk about how great or disappointing it is.

Just imagine warhawk in space with 256 players. Even if this isn't the announced game, we still know starhawk is coming
The Lazy One  +   1947d ago
wat's stupid is that a warhawk sequel has been heavily rumored for a long time. That would hardly be a surprise.

Deeloc  +   1947d ago

like vhero said
a sequel to warhawk is supposed to come out called starhawk or something like that. If there is to be a surprise announcement it will be on a game that most likely hasnt seen the light for some time.

No joke but I am all for a new jumping flash or philosoma or maybe a new toshinden. Something from the PS1 days needing a rejuvenation. Like when warhawk was announced for ps3 having come from the ps1 days.
Mr_Bun  +   1947d ago
Warhawk was/is incredible...one of the first PS3 games where the sixaxis shines. I would love a sequel!
ThanatosDMC  +   1947d ago
I didnt like the sixaxis controls but im an ace in the c0ckpit. Hmmm... that kinda doesnt sound right...

Anyway, if it's Starhawk there had better be a ton of players. 100+ and i'll feel happy dodging a hailstorm of bullets and missiles.

I rarely used chaff in Warhawk only when i know im going to get hit.
Mr_Bun  +   1947d ago
I thought flying with the sixaxis was tight! Then again, I was going through chaff bursts like they were going outta style
DaTruth  +   1947d ago
I was a ground soldier! Warhawks were just a means of transportation for me! That tells you how awesome that game was, when you can play Warhawk, without actually utilizing Warhawks and still be incredibly important on the battlefield.

Used to take nodes and defend flags from five guys single handedly!

Could be.
cobraagent  +   1947d ago
I think its gonna be infamous 2 or even FF13 Versus. How about MGS5? I have no idea of what this suprise is gonna be but i am pretty sure SCE won't let us down
dkgshiz  +   1947d ago
Versus is already confirmed
Its been in development for quite some time. Its going to be Killzone 3 I think.
BeaArthur  +   1947d ago
It will most likely be an exclusive so that would rule out MG5 (Raiden) and Versus (which I can only assume will end up multi platform).
dkgshiz  +   1947d ago
I think its either....
StarHawk,Infamous 2, or Killzone 3. I personally think its going to be Killzone 3.
DaTruth  +   1947d ago
My first thought was Killzone3 too. But then I imagined Killzone3 popping up behind Jack Trentton on screen in a keynote speech at E3 and now I think it is either Warhawk sequel(whatever they call it) or Infamous 2!

It feels like they wouldn't be doing KZ3 justice if they announced it any other way! And it will also crush the hype of whatever MS shows of Reach when it looks ridiculously better!

Id be happy it was warhawk the first ps3 game that i really enjoyed im pc and 360 gamer mostly it had a similar fun factor to lost planet multi but with larger areas the flying is difficult if ur skills are low like me but id comeback for more if single player brings more gamers in sweet i think this is the neglected ps3 game by fans and deserves more credit and appreciation..
fOrlOnhOpe57  +   1947d ago
Killzone3 footage......
to put the dampers on the Halo Reach hype?

Go on Sony, I dare you....lol
SuperStrokey1123  +   1947d ago
Id love to have this happen. I love warhawk and would like a sequel super lots.
artgamer  +   1947d ago
It can't be WarHawk, that would take the shine away from MAG at this point.

Gotta be Syphon Filter.
gdguide  +   1947d ago
The Warhawk sequel (Star Hawk)is being developed outside of Sony first party studios, so it can't be this game if it's coming directly from Sony. My bet still is that it's either Sly Cooper or Syphon Filter on the PS3 for the first time.
PirateThom  +   1947d ago
If it's not Starhawk for that reason, it can't be Sly Cooper either, since Lightbox and Sucker Punch are both third party devs.
Das_Bastardion  +   1947d ago
mmm could be
but to keep the momentum it needs to be a bigger game

Warhak is cool, but not THAT cool
ELite_Ghost  +   1947d ago
its very cool, u prob just suck at it or bought it recently therefore making u ragequit the game...
washingmachine  +   1947d ago
come on now,it will prob be something not worth all the speculation lol. when can you remeber when something like this "surprise" actually be a surprise and not something totally lame.

a new franchise would be nice instead of all these part 3,4,5s or 15s lol
DaTruth  +   1947d ago
When they say "surprise", they don't mean to the N4G usuals whom are unlikely to be surprised at anything; Rather, they mean the general gaming public, that will be surprised about almost anything.

After 100,000 speculation articles, everything has been covered and nothing could surprise us anymore! The blogosphere throws just about anything and everything out there on a daily basis!("Killzone2 the day after; What's in store for Killzone3?)
prodg52  +   1947d ago
The new game is going to be...
a new Ninja Theory game. (Heavenly Sword 2?)
DaTruth  +   1947d ago
Ninja Theory went multiplat! Their next title is already confirmed to be multiplat!
keysy420  +   1947d ago
if its war hawk 2 im going crazy
there were tons of people who liked this game but got a ps3 too late so if the next one comes right now its on
PimpHandHappy  +   1947d ago
Warhawk is VERY cool
i still love getting a jet pack and jumping out of the warhawk... nothing like being your own paratrooper! The game is still a blast 3 years after it came out
PimpHandHappy  +   1947d ago
with a single player campaign and a co-op could just maybe be GOTY for me
Neo604  +   1947d ago
I'm down with warhawk.
Warhawk with 256 player will be epic.
Arkham  +   1947d ago
According to GK from G4TV (via neogaf), it's not: StarHawk, MS3, or KZ3.

Leading speculation right now says it's Syphon Filter.
cpt_kaos  +   1947d ago
I'll Laugh it Sony announce Halo and they just purchased Bungie.
Arkham  +   1947d ago
It's bloody SOCOM 4. Barf.
SuperStrokey1123  +   1947d ago
Its socom 4 woot!
Karum  +   1947d ago
I would seriously love a Warhawk sequel but would really like it to have a good single player campaign. I think that is all Warhawk was missing to take it to the next level.
BannedForNineYears  +   1947d ago
It better be inFamous 2! I need inFamous 2 0_0
BannedForNineYears  +   1947d ago
*Wasn't inFamous2
It was Socom 4 -_-
viking805fan  +   1947d ago
