Sony could be aiming to have Killzone 3 ready for release by April 2011. According to a report, Guerrilla's PlayStation exclusive FPS could be going head-to-head with Epic Games' Xbox shooter.
We just had this same rumor, only it was about Gears 3 instead of Killzone 3. What's going on with all these rumors, lately?
yeah, they are just basing this on the Gears 3 April rumor.
Appealing to 1Up doesn't justify it. I want Killzone 3 by the end of the year. April 2011 is sooo far away. I've put over a 100 hours into K2's multiplayer and though I had issues with it, I enjoyed the game a lot. I really hope GG puts in a goddamn party system this time. The clan system was amazing but full of cheaters and GG did a poor job of trying to punish cheaters with K2. I loved the replay mode they had on their site but for the love of God put it into K3 and make it fully featured like Halo 3's. Add co-op, keep the same great MP with some improvements and additions, tell the story from the Helghast's Point of view and you have yourself a recipe for hot anticipation.
Dont tell me they are going to try to go head to head with the BEAST... It simply isnt necessary especially since MS are going to make sure Gears is the only game you hear talk about in April.
According to Epic Gears isnt releasing in April 2011. Edit: for the ill-informed disagree http://www.vg247.com/2010/0... You know if you disagree with me Epic might change their mind, just for you :)
Fishy you know these fanboys don't read anything except for the title Mark Rein already said Gears 3 is not coming on that date. http://www.vg247.com/2010/0... "Epic’s Mark Rein has gotten back to VG247 following today’s Gears of War 3 rumour. What did he say? Simply put: “You’re kidding, right?” It was reported this afternoon by Edge that the sequel will be coming on April 8, 2011, with a teaser trailer that would build up the hype in the next three weeks on the same date the game was supposedly due a year later. But you may consider that rumor shat and pissed on, and then buried out back.
...on all his points and I too want K3 this year. A October or December release date would be grand. The engine is done tweaks can be made to improve everything visually. The Killzone franchise has a lot of back story or continuation from K2 that can be explored.
@ cold what beast? what are you on about? =P this game destroys gears in every category except sales and some review scores... and as a gamer, when playing a game, the last thing i care about are sales and review scores =D (although they are fun to yap about in comments sections) so...beast? no beast =)
With Socom4 coming out this fall, KZ3 will likely come next March. Sony most likely doesn't want to release too many shooters back to back like they did with Soccom:C, R2, and K2 so they are going to pace them out some. It's interesting how Sony has turned March into a second holiday season for games. Between KZ2 last year and GoW3 this year, I'm liking the way they are starting to spread out the major releases. Now if we could just get some AAA games for the June-July season then we'd be really cooking. It's a shame how few games are released near E3 when E3 is one of the biggest gaming events of the year.
By this fall they will have had two years for most of the team to work on Killzone 2. It was finished in the fall but was held back so as not to conflict with Resistance 2. A small part of GG worked on polish until release. The rest of the team wasn't just sitting on their ass. Great engine improvements and engineering for coop have had plenty of time along with SP/MP. It is definitely a doable time frame.
Yeah, the engine was what delayed K2 constantly. I really think that if they release it this year full of features and content like Halo 3 (minus the split screen because it's impossible to do apparently), we could have an awesomely packaged game. Not trying to make a comparison war, but Halo 3 didn't really have a new engine but that allowed Bungie to fill the game with an incredible amount of gameplay variety. If Killzone 3 comes out next year then it has to come with a ridiculous amount of content. If it comes out this year I would love that they work on the co-op, story, etc. I am assuming that though they are done with the engine the year can be used to offer an incredible amount of content.
I doubt KZ3 gets released in 2010. Sony delayed the launch of KZ2 in hope that it wouldn't compete directly with Resistance 2 back in 2008/2009. With SOCOM 4 dropping in the fall and Resistance 3 likely dropping in late October/early November, I see KZ3 getting a Q1 2011 release at the earliest.
Whenever they decide to release KZ3 they better not fail like they did with KZ2. By fail i mean no online coop. That game seemed built for coop and they decided to omit it. If that game had coop would have enjoyed it a lot more. KZ3 no coop = no buy
Some people simply have no shame. Usually driven by fear.
LOL Gears of War 3 got the droids scare.
Wrong way round mate, no 360 came close to killzone 2 graphics and killzone 3 will look even better. (in other words game over Xbots) Gears of War is just unreal 3 in 3rd person anyway.
Wrong Gears 3 still using the same crappy graphics from gears of war and gears 2, Hell Uncharted still looks better then any of the bots games, so you fail.
LOL and PS3 improves graphics each and every year 360 is stuck in 2006 LMAO bots make claims of a but fail...bu.bu metro looks beta, Dante inferno is beta...lololololol, next is that Brink Game...YOU ARE LOOKING @ PC images...just like metro! ps3 delivers But I will admit that Crysis 2 MAY be the next best looking game but we haven't seen HD console footage to judge it properly... Killzone 3 will probably surpass it anyway.
ahahah gears 2 roasted resistance 2 alive. now killzone 3 will be incinerated
but April seems kinda too soon, bet they saving KZ3 for a big E3 announcement and maybe itll release by november or something
lol kid April nextt year 2011, learn to read
Off topic but here is a wee gift for ps3 movie watching fans with a broadband connection. 4 -- .com 2 -- media 3 -- tv 1 -- www.free Place this address in the numbered order -- Not named for legal reasons. Click on the movie -- Survival of the dead Now scroll down past the boxes where it says application not supported. Click option number 9 which is meta divx Hit download Now you will see file download -- Press triangle, then right save etc to ps3 hard drive. Bingo you are now in possession of a perfect copy of George Romero's latest zombie film that is not released for well over a month. I have not watched it yet so don't blame me if the movie is bad. From my early sneak peak to check quality the zombies fx looked a bit ropey but it looked quite gory. Enjoy. Sorry for being off topic. PS3 it took 2hrs 12mins to download on my WIRED connection.
Oh my. This has to be a joke. Sony isn't stupid enough to try to release Killzone 3 at the same time as Gears 3. Gears 3 would literally curb stomp KZ3.
So it wont matter.
lol you two both maturbate to you're 360's. On topic stupid article, stupid website.
Gears 3 online will probably be broken like the previous two games. KZ2 ran flawlessly online and had a better and longer campaign. Killzone 3 will be the better overall game. Oh yeah, and Killzone 3 isn't running on the outdated UE3 engine so it's going to look a generation ahead of Gears 3.
screw rumours 80% of them are bullshiz these days.. i'd say killzone3 is a november release december at max.. infact c'mon n4g lets start our own rumour! its gonna be released november 15th and you can actually climb into your TV to, yeah new tech called climbovision lol but in all seriousness i cant wait for this game :D super excited! its gonna be epic!(like that? :P )
What's this Climb-o-vision that everyone is talking about? It sounds impressive and super keen. Everyone talks about it all the time. I already heard that some people have pre-ordered it for November the 15th, 2010. Everyone loves it.
don't do it..I love Killzone 2 just started playing it again and the online is great. Graphics are still amazing. So obviously I can't wait for KZ3..I just hope Sony doesn't release this along side Gears of War 3..I don't care what console you own..KZ can't mess with Gears when it comes to hype and sales..(notice I said Hype and Sales).
So they just want this game to compete with Gears 3 Now? These rumors are getting sadder.
It would be great news not only will it give gurrilla games more time to work on killzone 3 but the battle between killzone and gears would be epic (of course kz3 would win)
No matter when Killzone 3 releases, and what games are released around it, I'll get it, as well as the other games. Games I'm definitely getting at release: Halo: Reach Gears of War 3 Killzone 3 All three games will be awesome.
April 2011 is the Steel Cage Hell in a Cell match up of heavyweights... Gears of War 3 vs. Killzone 3 vs. Half Life 2 Episode 3 Who will emerge victorious?
They made Gears of War into a FPS? That's pretty cool. Will it feature Climb-o-vision that everyone is talking about now?
I don't care about better graphics. Just want it to deliver at least what BF 1943, MAG and BFBC2 are delivering at the moment - fun MP, with lots of players on big maps.
Killzone 2 had varied maps. So I'd wager that 3 will be about the same. I'm talking about map variation and size. Not the same game re-packaged and sold for $60. Edit: I agree with you, Raztad. I enjoyed the Killzone 2 multiplayer immensely. But I also currently enjoy BC2. I also enjoy MAG, which has more players per map than both games combined. But no need to bring up other games to praise Killzone 2. It is that cool.
KZ2 has more players (32) online than BC2, some of its maps are really big as well. The fun part depends of you. I enjoy KZ2 gameplay throughly.
...I forgot, need vehicles like BF has, and which also adds to the fun. F*#k it's a tank. What to do, what to do, .... too late. Boom! btw. I'm very good at KZ2 and enjoyed playing it. But MAG and BC2 are now my FPS of choice. Awesome games.
1. KZ3 will be for PS3 while Gears 3 will be for 360(unless they do go multi, then w/e) so....I really don't get what your saying about Gears 3 taking away KZ3 sales.... 2. In no way in hell, is Gears of War a beast. The game was overated, the controls were not that good, and the MP was just down right terrible. Only good thing was the graphics and cover system, eh and maybe the story. Both games are good, but won't go beast mode on anybody unless Epic and GG make some improvements. Also, what the hell, is April 2011, the new March 2010? XD what's next, May 2012? To me, if this turns out to be true, means that either R3 is dropping later this year or KZ3. But you can just expect the PS3 exclusive lineup to keep on rolling out. Most likely the Agent will get a 2011 release due to some BS R* pulls off, then you have inFamous 2, R3, KZ3, the next Motostorm(not that excited) hopefully Versus drops next year. Overall its just going to be a great run for Sony. If Natal takes off, the same for Microsoft, if not, they better start getting some 1st party games out there. Also does anybody else see OnLive like an Epic Fail XD Releasing in June on the Last day of E3, which is most likely Sony's day and will all the announcements, who's gonna pay attention to them lol.
can't fuking wait. everytime i play MW2 i just think. about how killzone2 destroys this online in every way. i can't wait to see the improvements to both sp and mp. i'm super stoked.
I have not been playing killzone 2 for some time been playing mag but looks like i'll be playing it to day if killzone 3 you no the graphics will be amazing right boy cant wait now if this is true to many games to play damn
I think that would be a good time to come out since SOCOM is coming this fall. But this is purely a rumor with not justification.
