There’s little doubt at this point that Sony intends on continuing the Killzone franchise in a major way. Here’s what we already know: Sony-owned developer Guerilla Games, the studio that created the Killzone franchise, is spearheading three Killzone titles with the help of fellow first-party studio Sony Cambridge.
Guerilla confirmed at GDC that Killzone titles are in the works for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Perhaps the third game is for the yet-unannounced PlayStation 4? It’s all conjecture at this point.
But according to Siliconera, Sony may be ready to show the next Killzone game very soon. “Sony Computer Entertainment is recording a teaser for a future Killzone game,” Siliconera reports with information from an unnamed source. “The upcoming title takes place after the events of Killzone 3.”
Siliconera has text purportedly from the voiceover from the trailer. The voiceover, according to Siliconera’s source, was written for a female “who has ties to the Helghan Autarch.”
The site notes their source can’t (or won’t) pinpoint whether the trailer is specifically for the PS Vita iteration of Killzone. However, referring to the game as taking place after the events of Killzone 3 points us in the direction of a possible Killzone 4 for PS3, per Guerilla Games admitting that it’s working on an unannounced Killzone title on PlayStation 3.
