It has been confirmed that a new entry in the popular Earth Defense Force series is in development for the PS4.

D3 is publishing the game, but the developer has yet to be confirmed. Japanese studio Sandlot has been synonymous with previous titles in the franchise, but the last instalment — 2011's Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon — was coded in the west by Vicious Cycle.

Earth Defense Force 2025 was developed by Sandlot, but hasn't been released in the west yet — it's expected to hit the PS3 and 360 in February next year.

Details are scant, but given the sheer amount of fun delivered by previous entries in the series, we're pretty excited about this news.
