Guerrilla Games showcased a prettier, more colorful version of its popular first-person shooter franchise during Sony’s massive press event. Little was said about Killzone: Shadow Fall’s setting, but new information about the time line has arrived that pegs it a few decades after the conclusion of Killzone 3.
Both the developer and the official Killzone Twitter account have been getting buried beneath a sea of fan questions, and thankfully, many of them have been answered. One user asked Killzone.com about the placement of Shadow Fall in the franchise’s narrative blueprint and received a quick answer.
“It’s a sequel,” the account moderator said. “It takes place a couple of decades after the end of Killzone 3.”
The best part of that? No more Rico. Or, at least we all hope.
