Ironstar: "Contrary to popular belief, Killzone 3's engine is not being worked on by Naughty Dog developers."
I thought Naughty Dog helped them with the snow effects? I guess Guerrilla Games have too much pride lol.
KZ3 will still be incredible, think about how much untapped potential is in their engine. They don't need Naughty Dog will all due respect.
Or even better. Look at Uncharted 1, although a great game, it didn't even have half the features of Uncharted 2. Not only that, Naughty Dog couldn't efficiently build their levels to coincide with the story progression as good as they did with Uncharted 2. Why? Because most of the development time was spent on building the engine from the ground up for Uncharted 1. With Uncharted 2, they had a LOT more time and resources to use on other aspects of the game. Killzone 3 will be the first Killzone game that Guerrilla Games doesn't have to dedicate a lot of time and resources on building their engine from the ground up for. Best wishes to them. ^_^
Its ICE team not naughty dog.
The 'Ice Team' are part of 'Naughty Dog', just responsible for the tech and tools stuff(Edge Tools). The point is that all tools that are made get shared within 'Sony World Wide Studio's'.
It doesn't matter cos all the Tech and stuff is Shared with all the First Party Studios, ND don't need to Work with GG, just Share their tech the same way Santa Monica with the God of War III Engine... KZ3 = E-FPS
no surprise here Guerrilla Games can do fine developing this masterpiece on their own
Did a damn fine job last round.
Where is proof in the article? They don't have any quotes or sources
That's the first thing I noticed, is this guy just posting something he believes?
oh well...let it go, they make killzone, not uncharted. both the greatest game developers in their own right.
A shame as it would have been a great combination however I'm sure Guerrilla are capable of producing a grat game alone.
i was never under the impression that they were literally working together.......i felt (and still do) that since they are both sony first-party studios that ND was sharing info on how GG can render that crazy, great-looking snow in UC2 (for KZ3).
Shame, Well I hope Guerrilla Games are at least being consulted by Naughty Dog on some things like storytelling. Naughty Dog could help them improve the storyline but other than that Guerrilla Games don't need Naughty Dog.
the ice team go where they want when they want.
Their tech has been used in just about every single PS3 exclusive one could name - Heavenly Sword, Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted 2 and now Killzone 3. Just because Naughty Dog used it and it's ICE Team made it does not mean ND are directly collaborting with whoever uses it.
but so too, are Guerrilla Games. No doubt, ND' 'help' would come mainly in the shape of tech input / ideas rather than a direct involvement with the Killzone game engine.
but he has an event for a point of reference, so for now, I can lean towards this as being possible.
Why would they? Naughty Dog better work on their own games.
Of course they're not, but tech sharing and discussions take place all the time.. if anyone from or affiliated with Naughty were working on the title it'd be in the credits.
By all the love for ND, don't we forget the it was actually Guerilla and KZ2 which set the bar before ND caught up with Uncharted ? I mean, Guerilla proved already they are fantastic developers. Collaboration and competition is what drives both studios. Both do things their own way and both set the bar with each title they release. It was KZ2 as well as UC1, and UC2 and now it will be KZ3 again.
yo why we have dumb articles correcting dumb people who didnt know mostly all devs do they own work. ps fanbois lol, like they making somebody else game plus theirs.
