Guerrilla working on new IP

Sony-owned studio Guerrilla Games has confirmed that it's now working on a new IP.

Lead designer Eric Boltjes told Eurogamer that the studio is keen to use its experience to work on different types of games.

"I can be true about it, yes. That's definitely what's happening right now. I can't tell you what we're thinking of but yes," he said.

"As a studio we do want to branch out, and we have started work on a new IP, something completely different to Killzone. I don't want to say anything about it right now, but as a studio we do want to keep it fresh."

Boltjes went on to confirm how development works and why some of the team are working on a new IP when it's still a few months before Killzone Shadow Fall arrives.

"Usually what happens is at the end of a game people start to roll off," Boltjes explained.

"The artists and the coders work the longest, and then QA. But the designers, at some point their work is done. They're not allowed to touch the game because that changes everything for all other departments.

"So about three to four months before you ship, the designers sit down and think, what can we do for the next one.

"That happened then [with Killzone 3 to Shadow Fall] as well. So, about three years ago we went into that phase. The really tricky part about that phase is not trying to do too much. You have a room full of people and they all have a different idea of what they want to change about the game. They can't do everything, especially if you only have two-and-a-half years to build it.

"So it's streamlining that process of what we want to do to this is what we're actually going to do. That's the tricky part."

Boltjes wouldn't go into detail, but we'd imagine we'll find out what they are working on at some point in the future.
