With the upcoming release od Killzone Shadow Fall launching with the arrival of Sony’s PS4 next-generation gaming platform, Guerrilla Games lead multipayer designer Eric Boltjes in a recent interview with Eurogamer, has revealed that the first party Sony development studio has already began working on their next big thing, which will ‘not’ be based from the Killzone universe.
“As a studio we do want to branch out, and we have started work on a new IP, something completely different to Killzone. I don’t want to say anything about it right now, but as a studio we do want to keep it fresh.”
“So about three to four months before you ship, the designers sit down and think, what can we do for the next one.
“That happened then [with Killzone 3 to Shadow Fall] as well. So, about three years ago we went into that phase. The really tricky part about that phase is not trying to do too much. You have a room full of people and they all have a different idea of what they want to change about the game. They can’t do everything, especially if you only have two-and-a-half years to build it.”
What this new Sony IP from Guerrilla Games could be is anyone’s guess at the moment.
