If you’re still knee deep in the multiplayer for Killzone 2 or 3 then Guerrilla Games latest updates might break your heart. According to Guerilla Games official website, on March 29th, 2018, the online servers will be decommissioned. So, you still have another three months of Killzone online action!
Taken directly from the official site:
On March 29th, 2018, after more than six years of operation and countless battles between the ISA and the Helghast, the online servers for Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 will be decommissioned. The single player campaign for both games will remain accessible, but online play and related functionality will no longer work.
As we near the end of the online lifecycle for Killzone 2 and Killzone 3, we’d like to express how grateful we are for all the support and feedback we’ve received from the community over the last eight years. Your enthusiasm is what drove us to hone our craft and grow as a studio. We hope you enjoyed playing Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 online as much as we did creating them.
With Killzone 2 having launched in 2009, followed by Killzone 3 in 2011, the games servers have assumingly taken up a great deal of equity, when considering that Killzone Mercenary and Shadowfall’s online offerings are still in the wild, as well as the resources allocated for Horizon Zero Dawn. More importantly, can we now begin to speculate about a new title that is next up from Guerrilla, needing some online resources to shine?
After the amazing Horizon Zero Dawn, I am all for seeing how ambitious Guerrilla could enhance the Killzone universe and overall experience. However, balancing both franchises does need to be properly handled in order to fully realize the best realization for both games.
