Killzone developer Guerrilla Video games had a smash hit with 2017’s Horizon: Zero Daybreak, and the sequel Horizon: Forbidden West is about to launch later this yr. Nevertheless, it seems the Killzone franchise could have been a casualty of this success. The official Killzone web site is not obtainable, as an alternative directing gamers to go to the principle PlayStation web site as a replacement.
As spotted by VGC, the official Killzone site now solely reveals a discover web page letting guests comprehend it has been “retired” and that it’ll quickly ahead them to PlayStation.com as an alternative. You possibly can not create or handle clans within the PS4 launch recreation Killzone: Shadow Fall, both, although you possibly can nonetheless play on-line multiplayer within the recreation as regular.
“Thanks to Killzone.com’s many followers and guests all through the years for his or her enthusiasm and assist,” Guerrilla Video games stated on the positioning.
The discover doesn’t say the Killzone franchise has ended, although we have heard little on the franchise since Shadow Fall launched in 2013. That recreation ended on a cliffhanger with the ISA and Helghast armies seeing renewed battle after a interval of Chilly-Battle-like silence. A Vita recreation developed by the defunct Guerrilla Cambridge, Killzone Mercenary, was additionally well-received for its bite-sized marketing campaign missions and interesting on-line multiplayer.
Although it will actually make sense for Guerrilla to focus all its consideration on Horizon going ahead, it does go away the PS5 and not using a large unique first-person shooter. The Resistance sequence has additionally been on ice for the reason that early days of the Vita, with Insomniac Video games now targeted on Spider-Man and Ratchet & Clank.
