“As for open, specifically, you’ll have to wait for the next game’s announcement to see what it does.”
Its been rumored for a while that Guerrilla Games are working on an open world sci-fi role playing game. In an AMA conducted by Guerrilla Games at Reddit, they were asked when players will see an open world game from them.
Sam, Senior Online Producer explained that developing open world games are challenging. “Open games are a very different beast, and an unprepared team can spend loads of people and money making content for an open game (I used to work for Ubisoft, so I know the pitfalls to avoid). Thankfully, we have an ever curious technical team that is not resting on its laurels and investigating new frontiers that help us push our content in new an interesting directions. As for open, specifically, you’ll have to wait for the next game’s announcement to see what it does.”
If you read the above paragraph closely, the developer confirmed that the next IP will indeed be an open world game. He also stated that they are very excited about the new IP.
On another note, Killzone Shadow Fall is getting a co-op mode and it is apparently turning out to be great. “This time we are designing it for the MP players who would have been playing for some time, so something different than the previous expansion, but still enough to sink your teeth into.”
