The Sony subsidiary, Guerrilla Games, developer behind the popular Killzone series, has confirmed that they have begun to work on a brand new IP now that the upcoming PS4 launch title, Killzone: Shadow Fall, has been completed. In a recent interview, Eurogamer spoke with Guerrilla Games lead designer, Eric Boltjes.

“I can be true about it, yes. That’s definitely what’s happening right now. I can’t tell you what we’re thinking of but yes,” he said. “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.”

Boltjes went on to describe the usual process the company goes through after completing a game:

“Usually what happens is at the end of a game people start to roll off,” Boltjes explained. “The artists and the coders work the longest, and then QA. But the designers, at some point their work is done. They’re not allowed to touch the game because that changes everything for all other departments.

“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.

“So it’s streamlining that process of what we want to do to this is what we’re actually going to do. That’s the tricky part.”

Killzone: Shadow Fall will be out on November 15th in North America and November 29th in Europe when the PS4 launches.
