Killzone's future might be bleak, as Sony has killed the series' website

They don't need Killzone anymore as long as Horizon series is selling

We haven't heard from this series since 2013-ish


It's been a while since we've heard from Killzone. Now, thanks to a slight change on Sony's end, it seems like it's going to be a bit longer.

Folks who tried to visit Killzone's official site this past week were greeted with a new message straight from developer Guerilla Games, which noted that the site is now dead; and will instead direct visitors to PlayStation.com.

Here's the full statement:
"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 doesnít 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.comís many fans and visitors throughout the years for their enthusiasm and support.

Sincerely,

Guerrilla."
It looks like Guerrilla Games, which is owned by SIE Worldwide Studios, has moved on, or has been ordered to move on. The developer is now hard at work with the smash-hit Horizon series, and is still working on the sequel: slated this year for PS4 and PS5.

Naturally, just as 343 picked up the mantle of Halo from Bungie, Sony could stick any studio it wants with a Killzone revival. They still own the IP after all.

I think you're series failed to take off well. I never played any of them myself.

I don't think it ever was as popular as they wanted, and with Horizon outselling it, i think there's no justifiable reason to carry on.

Nothing important is lost tbh. I'd much rather see new projects from guerrila.

I played a couple of them I think. Absolutely nothing memorable about them.
