A free to play shooter on the cards from the Killzone: Shadow Fall developer?

Though it’s been busy with Killzone: Shadow Fall, Guerrilla Games is working on a new IP for the PlayStation 4. Nothing has been indicated about the game so far but a recent listing by the studio for regular/senior online designers provide some scant new details.

Some of the optional requirements include “Developed micro-transactions and/or nontraditional recurring revenue models” and “Have developed or supported online gaming communities or titles with a large ‘social’ focus”. This could indicate that Guerrilla is going the free to play route with its next title and looking to emulate the current trend of online games like in terms of social interactivity between players.

That last point could easily apply to games like Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 as well as Destiny, so it’s still wishful thinking as to whether Guerrilla will opt for a completely online experience. The micro-transactions do lend credence to an online free to play component though – stay tuned for E3 as we learn more about what Guerrilla has in store.

What are your thoughts on Guerrilla supporting micro-transactions, seeing as how it was the downfall of Sony titles like Gran Turismo 6? Let us know in the comments.
