The Rumor: Guerrilla Games, makers of the iconic PlayStation FPS series Killzone, is developing a new IP that could have a heavy emphasis on online multiplayer and micro transactions. At least, that's what a recent job ad for the studio hints at. The position asks for candidates to have shipped a game with a "significant online focus", and with "online, multiplayer or coop experience." The listing also mentions "micro-transactions and/or nontraditional recurring revenue models."
Our Take: Guerrilla’s new IP remains shrouded in mystery after two-and-a-half years of development, with the studio only willing to say that it’ll be "completely different" to the Killzone series--which the dev had dedicated its resources to for the past decade. With games like Destiny, The Division and Watch Dogs (to name a few), the new console generation has marked the rise of online-focused games that blur the lines between single and multiplayer gameplay. Perhaps Guerrilla is cooking up something along those lines for PS4.
