We don’t know a whole lot about Guerrilla Games’ unannounced PlayStation 4 project, aside from the fact that it’s in production now. However, a job listing on the Dutch developer’s official website hints that it may sport “innovative online gameplay”, as the studio is searching for both regular and senior designers with “multiplayer or co-op experience” to work on the upcoming next-gen game.
Rumours suggest that the impending release will be an open world role-playing affair akin to Fallout, so we’re not sure how the social aspects will slot in – we suppose that some kind of MMO format is not impossible. Indeed, the application does reference “end game design”, which is particularly common in the aforementioned genre.
Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida has hinted that Sony has many secret unveilings left to make in the wake of E3, so there’s a chance that we could see this at GamesCom. Alas, with the Amsterdam-based outfit still busy beavering away on post-release support for launch title Killzone: Shadow Fall, the German show may still come too soon for the studio.
I am really excited to find out about this new game. I am not a fan of Killzone what so ever, but the sounds of an RPG or mmorpg definitely peaks my interested.
They had no problems with online gameplay/functionality/modes. They are just refining their strengths.
We all know where their problems lie, single player story, compelling antagonist/protagonist. At somepoint they just lost it. Of course if this new IP doesn't have single player, well they still need to fix it along the way.
I think they were testing the waters with the new killzone dlc intercept. I believe their new game might have some of the mechanics from the dlc. Which would be fine by me cause I'm enjoying intercept alot.
I was at their studio 2 weeks ago for a preview of Intercept and thought I could sneak a peak in at some of the devs PC a bit. The part where they were working on the new IP was totally sealed of however! I tried wandering off as if I got lost, but the doors were sealed shut and only accessible by keycard. I couldn't care less bout intercept, so I figured I'd go round the back, pretend to go and eat something outside, to see if i could see something through the windows: all the windows were covered in black tape and plastic! Man... My curiosity luckily didn't get me kicked out or something, but now I really can't wait till the reveal no more. I actually know someone who's working on it, but he isn't telling me anything... Well he is, but it are different stories every time.
And microtransactions, apparently. If the other job listing is any indication.
I hope it's cool!!! I'm glad they stopped making Killzones!
