Killzone was perhaps the flagship playStation shooter from 2004 to 2013., Appearing on PlayStation 2 and holding up until his breakdown with the release of Killzone Shadow Fall on PlayStation 4. It was a brilliant series that was sold on consoles for many years and was developed by a team that later released a series of Horizon, but ten years ago it suffered a sad death.
On November 15, 2013, the game Killzone Shadow Fall, which was adopted very sparingly, was published on PlayStation 4. The game was not impressed, the multiplayer could not compete with Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4, and, in the end, the game bent – Guerrilla Games put it on the shelf and no longer looked around.
Will the new Killzone be? Most likely no.
In one of the leaks that leaked at the beginning of 2022, it was suggested that Guerrilla Games was working on a kind of shooter with "e -sports slope", in which the former developers of Rainbow Six take part. It was emphasized that "Killzone is dead", But since then they have no longer returned to this topic.
From time to time there are statements that the new Killzone game is in development, but they are never confirmed. At the beginning of this year, it was emphasized that as a result of the great success of Horizon, Guerrilla Games "no need" Return to Killzone, which many consider simply forgotten franchise. Once they called Killzone "Halo killer", And she could become them, but did not have time.
This is very disappointing, because the Killzone universe was created from scratch to become something grandiose. Guerrilla has created entire worlds and backstory, which have been melting many opportunities, and during the four main releases and two spin-offs, this universe has been studied thoroughly. It seems that we only scratched the surface of Killzone, and the factions and characters created almost twenty years ago were simply unforgettable.
Being one of the defining shooters for the PlayStation 2 and the flagship franchise for the PlayStation 3 from Sony, it was sad to observe how the series rolled off the cliff after the PlayStation 4 exit. With modern technologies, Killzone 5 or Shadow Fall II could look amazing and demonstrate excellent results, especially if the Guerrilla developers team worked on them.
