We always assumed that Guerrilla Games’ in-development fantasy title would debut alongside the PlayStation 4, but it looks like the company could be readying Killzone 4 instead. VideoGamer.com reports that the Dutch developer is currently applying the finishing touches to the next-generation first-person shooter, which could debut during the platform holder’s PlayStation Meeting on 20th February.
As the publication rightly points out, Sony has a habit of announcing Killzone titles alongside new consoles. The second game’s target trailer was the subject of much discussion in 2005, while the manufacturer also confirmed Killzone: Mercenary was in development back when it first revealed the PlayStation Vita.
The handheld spin-off’s finally due out on 17th September, which makes us doubt the website’s assertion that Killzone 4 will release this year. We can’t imagine that the publisher would launch two entries in the franchise in such a short span of time. Still, we’ll find out more in less than two weeks.
