NGP Killzone in Sony Cambridge's sights - Report

Little Big Planet PSP studio handling development duties for upcoming Next Generation Portable series installment.

15 Comments

In the weeks following the official announcement of Sony's Next Generation Portable, the developers for the Uncharted and Resistance NGP titles have surfaced. Now, the team responsible for development of the NGP Killzone title is known…and it's not series developer Guerrilla Games.

From the makers of Little Big Planet for the PSP comes Killzone for the NGP.

In an interview with Gamerzines, Guerrilla Games senior producer Steven Ter Heide said that unlike with the franchise's most recent portable outing Killzone: Liberation, development of the NGP Killzone title will be handled outside of the Dutch developer's offices.

Ter Heide said Sony Cambridge--the studio that brought Little Big Planet PSP to market--will handle development of the unnamed NGP Killzone title.

"We've been working with [Sony Cambridge] very closely for a couple of years now. They've been helping us develop actual Killzone content for all the games," he said.

"We feel like the game is in good hands. We'll still oversee it because the universe is something we've built up. We know the war and the rules that have been established, but they're driving the development."

I have seen every video available of NGP footage and it still looks amazing seeing PS3 graphics on a handheld. Killzone on NGP will no doubt be the best FPS on a handheld to date. Not just because of the visuals but with so many different ways to control a game. Brilliant.

I still can't believe there is a potable capable of bringing the full killzone experience. I can't wait to get my hands on this powerful machine.

I can dig it. It seemed like the psp titles, for awhile, were only games used as a filler between the actual sequels.

Hopefully this new Killzone game will end up as a launch title.

I have complete faith in Sony's ability to pick the right developer for their portable games. Little Big Planet PSP, the two PSP Syphon Filter games, the two God of War PSP games, Resistance Retribution, etc, etc, etc. Sony knows how to release quality PSP games.
