Killzone 3 is merely 10 days away. The public multiplayer beta is available to all those interested and a single-player demo will drop this week.
Obviously, it's full steam ahead for Guerrilla's hot new project. But what about those who have played and supported Killzone 2 over the past few years? While it makes sense that the developer is shifting its focus to the new title, it seems Guerrilla has unceremoniously kicked those fans to the curb: according to several forums and communities, it seems the KZ2 online leaderboards haven't been updated and player rankings have been frozen. Many like to play for the benefit of Trophies and weekly rankings but as of now, it seems nothing is happening…might KZ2 already be dismissed entirely? You can find evidence of the halt in support at the official Killzone forums , as well as at the PS3Trophies forums .
The biggest problem is that if support has indeed ended for KZ2, the fans never received any prior warning from Guerrilla. Furthermore, no Guerrilla staff members are answering any questions anywhere, which isn't going over well, either. Perhaps one could make the argument that it's to be expected with KZ3 right around the corner, but even so, it's never a good idea to have miffed fans in your stable. We'll have to see if Guerrilla makes an official KZ2-related announcement this week.
