Earth Defense Force 2017 spawns sequel

D3 mobilizing Earth Defense Force Insect Armageddon; teaser site already up for new installment in xenophobic third-person action series.

It's been three years since the North American Xbox 360 launch of Earth Defense Force 2017. Given the complete lack of news on the franchise since then, one could be excused for thinking the human resistance had fallen prey to the invading robo-insectoid armada that it featured. However, there's now reason for hope, as a placeholder site has surfaced for a new project in the franchise apparently titled Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon.

Earth Defense Force 2017 (pictured) was a phobia combo platter of insects, aliens, and robots.

The site contains no information on platforms or release window and no content of any kind beyond a logo for the game and an Entertainment Software Rating Board "Rating Pending" emblem. The site is registered to D3Publisher of America. A representative with the company confirmed the game's development, saying, "Regarding Earth Defense Force, the rumor is true about a new game… However, we are not revealing any additional information until our formal announcement in the near future."

The Earth Defense Force series began life as Chikyuu Boueigun, part of D3Publisher's Japanese line of Simple 2000 budget PlayStation 2 games. While Earth Defense Force 2017 was the first installment in the series to see release in North America, the previous installments had made their way to Europe under the Global Defence Force and Monster Attack names.
