You may recall the big news this past weekend regarding GamePro's announcement of a Killzone 2 release date. According to an article in the recent magazine edition, Guerilla "confirmed" the game would arrive in September.
"Killzone has been confirmed for a September release. Considering what we saw, gameplay-wise, at GDC in March, I think pushing this incredibly hyped and anticipated FPS out too early is a mistake, but it will sell like chocolate-chip hotcakes even if it’s another partial turd like the first."
Obviously, this kicked off a firestorm of discussion and controversy, primarily because it would mean the game would be going head-to-head with Halo 3 that month. It makes little sense from a business perspective, so we were all wondering what Guerilla was thinking. Well, it appears they were never thinking about a September release date.
Seb "motherH" of Guerilla Games has promptly shot down the erroneous date:
"That is incorrect. I don’t know why they would think this. Killzone for PS3 is not being released at that time."
Ah, well, things make sense again. Unfortunately, we still don't have a release date for Killzone 2 , but considering the public beta is still a ways off (evidently), we doubt we'll see the final version this year. But at the very least, Guerilla hasn't completely lost their minds.
