Guerrilla Games is taking a break from Killzone, Lead Concept Artist Confirms

At the Horizon: Zero Dawn Preview Event in Shangri-La Makati, Sirus Gaming was able to sit down with Guerrilla Games’ Lead Concept Artist, Roland IJzermans. I asked if we are to expect another Killzone installment in the future, and IJzermans said:

“No comment on that… the team is not working on another Killzone.”

This confirms that we might not see another sequel of their main franchise soon.

Killzone: Shadow Fall did not exceed expectations as a launch title like Killzone 2. Since Guerrilla Games’ just finished Horizon: Zero Dawn’s development, he said that he can’t also comment if we are to expect a sequel and that we will have to ‘discover that after finishing the game’.

Do you want to have another Killzone title soon? Or should Guerrilla Games focus more on new IPs? Let us know in the comments!

    I like the fact that they’re taking time off that franchise. Too many developers(odds are it’s the publishers but w/e) milk franchises until they get stale and we lose all interest.

    “Killzone: Shadow Fall did not exceed expectations as a launch title like Killzone 2”

    Not critically, but game sold over 2 million copies. That’s enough for new sequel.

    Maybe like Naughty Dog, they can have two teams. Each Team works on their game and then switch, that way everyone is involved and the best possible can be done. But we don’t want to push anyone, so only if its possible. Just because Naughty Dog can, doesn’t mean everyone can.

    Umm No Shit. LOL They said this when they started working on Horizon. The marketplace is chock full of military style shooters.

    As a fan of the Killzone series I am excited about the potential of now where the studio can take Killzone, based on their amazing critic success with Horizon. Ultimately, inking the right narrative was always Killzone’s achillies, despite its amazing gameplay, however now with a talented team of writers and an open-world RPG to their credit, I am keeping the faith that Guerrilla will be introducing a new Killzone in the near future.
