PSU.com contacted SCEA's Alex Armour to get an update on the multiplayer beta for Killzone 2.
"We are hoping to do a beta but I don't think we'll have anything ready before this year is over... it is something we are working on for next year," he wrote.
One already known fact is that gamers will get their paws on an online beta before Killzone 2's official release. Guerilla Games' lead tester, Seb Downie, confirmed that fact earlier this year on Killzone 2's official forums:
"Of course there is going to be a public beta. I have always said that any game that has an online mode needs to go through a public beta to ensure it works as intended," asserted Downie.
His statement spawned news articles across the internet that the Killzone 2 Public Beta might be available in 2007. However, that turns out not to be the case.
This quashes earlier rumors which suggested that it would indeed be available in time for the holidays.
