While Sony PlayStation first-party studio Guerrilla Games has struck gold with Horizon Zero Dawn, the studio was previously known more for the Killzone first-person franchise more than anything else.
While Sony has kept quiet on the franchise’s future, we do have some new Killzone news to share today, though it’s not exactly something players would see as good news. The official killzone.com website has now been “retired,” and Guerrila has posted a message announcing it, which you can read below.
KILLZONE.COM HAS RETIRED
Dear Killzone.com visitor,
The official website for the KILLZONE franchise has retired. Going forward, visitors to Killzone.com will be directed to PlayStation.com.
While this change doesn’t affect the online multiplayer modes, player statistics or ranking data for KILLZONE MERCENARY and KILLZONE SHADOW FALL, it is now no longer possible to create or manage clans in KILLZONE SHADOW FALL. We apologize for this inconvenience.
Thank you to Killzone.com’s many fans and visitors throughout the years for their enthusiasm and support.
Does this mean Sony has no intention of releasing a Killzone game anytime soon? Maybe, maybe not. The company might just want to rope in its first-party games under the official PlayStation website to keep things all in one place. That said, it’s a little disheartening that the first Killzone news of 2021 is of its official website shutting down.
Would you want to see another entry in the Killzone franchise? We definitely do, as it’s even part of our list of franchises we want revived on the PS5.
