Due to many titles escaping out of this year to avoid butting heads with certain blockbusters, we already know that many great games are penciled in for Q1 2010. But what about the rest of the year?
Well, if the latest edition of PlayStation: The Official Magazine is to be believed, FPS fans everywhere should be excited. Although we haven't seen the magazine just yet, E4G tells us that on page 20, they talk about "The Secret Games of 2010." Among these three are top shooter projects, one of which may come as a surprise to those who easily recall the development time required for Killzone 2 …that's right; supposedly, the third installment is "reportedly deep in development" and will actually launch next year. Another major FPS would be Resistance 3 , which Insomniac hinted at in a recent Full Moon Show podcast, and lastly, a Treyarch employee hinted they'd be following in Modern Warfare 2 's footsteps and are working on a sequel to 2008's World at War . We're most excited – and most skeptical – about Killzone 3 but if that drops for the holidays or something, there's little doubt it will spur Sony and the PS3 forward. As for R3, we continually insist that Resistance doesn't get anywhere near enough credit in the gaming world (R2 is the second-best FPS of the generation next to KZ2, in our opinion), so we can't wait for the third title.
And let's not forget that many critics said Call of Duty: World at War could very well be the best WWII shooter ever, and sales were impressive. So why not go for a sequel? Heck, the world is already crazy over MW2, so it seems like a fairly safe strategy. Anyway, we'll be on the lookout for more info concerning these three gigantic titles; for now, it's all just filed under "rumors."
