What are the developers of Killzone: Mercenary working on?
Guerrilla Cambridge are a very talented bunch. That much was evident last year when they released the highly accomplished PlayStation Vita exclusive Killzone: Mercenary (arguably a much better game than the PS4’s flagship Killzone: Shadow Fall developed by Guerrilla proper). So obviously, there’s a fair bit of interest in what these guys are up to next- are they going to bring another high profile Sony IP successfully to the Vita?
No, actually- a job listing on their site seems to indicate that they have already started work on their next project, which is a high profile multi million PlayStation series.
By all indications, it seems Guerrilla Cambridge now has stewardship of the next big Killzone game. That fits with the description, and it also makes sense, since Guerrilla themselves have apparently moved on to making a new IP. Sony obviously doesn’t want to end Killzone, considering just how successful the IP has been for them, so it makes sense that they would hand it to a talented bunch like Guerrilla Cambridge, who already have experience with it.
Still, it’s a bit disappointing- they’re a very talented studio, and I think they deserve a far better framework to work with than Killzone. Ah well. Maybe they can elevate the quality of Killzone in the process.
