Perhaps trying to steal the show from one Mr. Duke Nukem, Sony has announced a release date for Guerilla’s Killzone 3. It’ll be on shelves February 22 in North America.
If the wait between Killzone and its sequel seemed a bit longer than you had to wait for Killzone 3, you’re not imagining things. Guerilla’s Herman Hulst admitted that the development cycle for Killzone 3 was much shorter than Killzone 2. He points to a more experienced development, having learned many lessons from bringing Killzone 2 to life. But he’s clear that doesn’t mean Killzone 3 is a copy-paste of Killzone 2.
“There’s nothing really in Killzone 3 that’s straight from Killzone 2,” he told me, “everything’s been improved.”
The game’s multiplayer is playable to the public for the first time at PAX this week. If you’re there, check it out, and stop reading stories on the Internet.
