New Killzone PS4 games could still happen, says Guerrilla Games

Guerrilla Games has refused to rule out the possibility of developing new Killzone games following the release of the PlayStation 4-exclusive outing Killzone: Shadow Fall three years ago.

Speaking with Game Informer (via GameSpot), the studio’s Managing Director, Herman Hulst, described the science-fiction shooter franchise as very much ‘core’ to Guerilla’s DNA, although it’s clear the Amsterdam-based developer doesn’t have anything to announce just yet.

"Killzone is very key and very core to Guerrilla," he said. "We have a lot of love for the franchise. In a way it’s conclusive, but at the same time we’ll leave everything open for the future. Who am I to say we’ll never do anything? There’s too much in it to ever make any kind of definite statements on [the future of Killzone]."

For now of course, Guerrilla Games is very much focused on its upcoming PS4-exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn, a brand new IP that sees players surviving in a post-apocalyptic world populated with mechanical beasts and other hazards. The game is slated for release in February 2017.

Killzone launched back in 2004 on the PlayStation 2 and was followed by the PlayStation Portable outing Killzone: Liberation in 2006. Killzone 2 saw the franchise jump to PS3 back in 2009, with a sequel following two years later. 

Finally, Killzone: Mercenary for PlayStation Vita turned up in fall 2013, while Killzone Shadow Fall accompanied the PS4 at launch in November of the same year.
