PlayStation 4 exclusive Killzone: Shadow Fall may have deployed less than six months ago, but Dutch developer Guerrilla Games is already starting to look to the future. In addition to fleshing out the first-person shooter with fresh modes and maps, the first-party outfit is also busy beavering away on a new intellectual property, which is widely believed to be a role-playing game. And speaking as part of an interview with Eurogamer.net, producer Poria Torkan has hinted that gamers have a lot to look forward to.
“It’s really awesome,” he told the site. “It's exciting times. If I even say one word, people will kill me." The studio recently recruited Fallout: New Vegas’ writer in order to pen the new intellectual property, which will apparently be very different to the Killzone series. It’ll also benefit from the organisation’s existing work on Sony’s next-gen system, which was made difficult due to the console changing during development. “The best metaphor for making a launch title is that it's like driving a race car while the car is still being built around you,” Torkan sighed.
There’s no word on when we’ll see Guerrilla Games’ next effort for real, though speculation suggests that it won’t be announced at E3 next month. Instead, the studio’s biding its time – and given its technical chops, it appears prepared to blow people away. “We had two-and-a-half years to figure out what we wanted to do with our engine and one-and-a-half years to figure out what we wanted to do with the hardware,” the employee beamed. “Imagine when comparably technically advanced studios get four or five years under their belts with the [PS4]. We'll get our chance.”
