Inan interview with GameTrailersrecorded during GDC, Sony Computer Entertainment of America President and CEO Jack Tretton confirmed the existence of %26ndash; or at least plans for %26ndash; a third Killzone.
%26ldquo;I don%26rsquo;t know whether you%26rsquo;ll see announcements about it,%26rdquo; said Tretton to host Geoff Keighley, %26ldquo;but I can promise you a Killzone 3.%26rdquo;
The quasi-announcement couldn%26rsquo;t have been timed better, as it coincides neatly with GamesRadar%26rsquo;s annualWeek of Hate. Like all other professional media outlets, GamesRadar is widely known among Killzone fans for completely hating the franchise, for no reason other than that it%26rsquo;s on the PS3 and isn%26rsquo;t Halo.
Our clear and unfair bias is evidenced not only by GamesRadar%26rsquo;sless-than-glowingpreview coverageof Killzone 2, but also by the fact that we gave it our lowest possiblereview score: a shameful 9 out of 10. Further establishing our baselesshatred of developer Guerrilla's shooter was an earlier article, titled %26ldquo;The world%26rsquo;s most generic game character,%26rdquo;which included the Helghast mask and signaled our failure to understand just how iconic and original its design is.
Oh wait, no, that%26rsquo;s one of those guys fromJin-Roh. Here, let%26rsquo;s try again:
No, wait, that%26rsquo;s not right either%26hellip;
Shit. Hang on, we%26rsquo;ll get this eventually%26hellip;
Above: Ugh, FINALLY
In all seriousness, nothing else was mentioned or announced about the game, other than that it's on its way %26ndash; something already-kind-of-confirmed by Killzone 2's cliffhanger ending.We %26ndash; along with every other so-called "journalist" with an inexplicable grudge against the game and its fans %26ndash;expect to see a lot more by the time E3 rolls around in June.
