While we’re unsure whether this rumor is true or if some details regarding the long rumored Starhawk in development by Lightbox Interactive for PS3 got mixed up a bit, it definitely has our interest piqued.

Still, take this for what it is at the moment, a rumor.

According to the Saudi site NC4A, via N4G, the editor was given a hands-on with WarHawk 2 at a secret SCEA event for “an unannounced game,” where players of the first WarHawk were selected to attend.

Here is what the site gleaned from the event:

  • The Game will feature a story mode.
  • It will support Co-op.
  • Initially the game will support 32 players on the network.
  • Multiplayer will feature 25 maps.
  • The game will feature a military vehicles such as tanks, motorcycles, air-crafts and other vehicles.
  • You can build bunkers but they are subject to destruction by enemies.
  • Improvements for the combat system and camera angles.
  • The Graphics [are] better than the previous Warhawk.

Not much there, especially pertaining to StarHawk since nothing pertaining to space was mentioned,  so it’s liley two different games.

As usual, we’ll send a mail to SCEA reagrding this, but we don’t expect them to give up the surprise early if it is indeed in the cards.
