A listing on Amazon France suggests that Sony will release the Killzone games as a boxed trilogy this October.
The posting, which you can see below, claims that all three of Sony’s shooters will be released on October 24 for €59.99, which works out as roughly £47 or $75.
While nothing has been confirmed, and the price and release date for other territories could change even if the posting is correct, Amazon France has previous form in accurately leaking the existence of titles. It was the website that first listed Call of Duty: Black Ops II, outing the identity of this year’s Call of Duty shooter, and it did the same for the Ratchet & Clank Trilogy (or Collection, if you’re American).
It’s this second title that’s most interesting to consider in relation to the Killzone Trilogy, as all three games in that collection were originally released on PS2 just like the first Killzone. As they all received HD remastering before coming to PS3, could this mean that the same is in store for the shooter that started the series off? We heard rumours earlier this year that Killzone 1 would be released on PSN as an emulated and updated version, but this was later "delayed indefinitely".
If the game is about to come to PS3 at long last, it’d make sense that they’d want it to compare favourably in terms of visuals with others in the series, especially if updating the graphics has been mentioned before.
We’ve reached out to Sony for comment and will update the story with any comment we received.
The original Killzone title released on PS2 in 2004. This was followed up by Killzone 2 in 2009 and Killzone 3 in 2011, both on PS3. The next Killzone title currently confirmed as in development is Killzone: Mercenary, which is planned for a 2013 release on Vita.
