Guerrilla Games has become a key part of Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE’s) group of first-party videogame development studios over the past few years. The company is behind the popular Killzone franchise that has hit essentially every PlayStation platform since that PlayStation 2, and supported the launch of the PlayStation 4 with Killzone: Shadow Fall back in 2013. Since that launch two years ago Guerilla Games has kept quiet about what its next project might be. It appears that this will change tonight as the studio is said to be revealing a new title for the Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD).
That is according to a report from Wired that suggests that company will have a new videogame to share at SCE’s annual E3 press conference tonight. The developer will reportedly be part of a larger group of studios revealing new projects for the HMD. Little else has been shared, though, in the past, the company has been rumoured to be working on an open-world role-playing game (RPG) that features dinosaurs named Horizon. Could the team be working on something similar to the likes of ARK: Survival Evolved from Studio Wildcard? That title is also expected on Project Morpheus as well as Oculus Rift.
It wouldn’t be the first time the Guerrilla Games has supported new technology from SCE. Along with being one of the first titles on PlayStation 4, the studio’s Killzone 3 for PlayStation 3 integrated support for both the PlayStation Move motion controller and 3D display technology, which SCE was making a big push for at the time. Could whatever the studio has to reveal tonight also be supporting the PlayStation Move? One thing’s for sure: it’s certainly going to be an interesting show for VR fans.
VRFocus will continue to follow Project Morpheus and all other VR-related projects, reporting back with the latest updates on them.
