Guerrilla: Naughty Dog not helping out with Killzone 3 engine


Guerrilla Games boss Hermen Hulst has confirmed at a press event for Killzone 3 in the US that Uncharted developer Naughty Dog is not helping out on the graphics engine for the shooter alongside the Holland-based studio.

It was reported last weekend that ND was helping GG out in some part, although that wasn't exactly specified at the time. But at the US event, the first time most US journalists have seen the game, Hulst killed the rumour dead in its tracks.

Oh well. Would have been quite an awesome partnership if we do say so ourselves. That said, Guerrilla is going all out on Naughty Dog and God of War developer Sony Santa Monica with KZ3.

"We need to, right?" Hulst told VG247 in an interview at the game's formal reveal in Amsterdam two weeks ago when asked if the shooter would need to try and beat God of War III and Uncharted 2 on a tech level.

"That’s what we do. We talk to those guys a lot, both the Santa Monica team and the guys at Naughty Dog, and that’s the little game between us as friends of the studios.

"Yes, we do that, but then again they’re working on their next games and they’re going to have to do better again. So absolutely: we need to do that."
