Today Zipper Interactive announced a new SOCOM game for the PlayStation 3, and surprisngly for a release later this year. The fact that the studio is releasing two games in 2010 has resulted in many gamers believing that the studio will move on from M.A.G. and concentrate solely on the newly announced sequel. The team has made it clear that this is not the case.
On the Official PlayStation Blog, Jeremy Dunham, Sr. Community Manager at Zipper Interactive, replied to naysayers:
“We’re still 100% committed to supporting MAG. There’s some crossover here at the studio, but we have dedicated teams to each,” adding, “(Plus, we didn’t just start this yesterday, we’ve been working on it for awhile). Dunham further commented, “We have some exciting things for MAG coming up and for a long time after.”
And who wouldn’t believe them when they’re team currently comprises of around 150 developers? You can check out the SOCOM 4 announcement and screenshots here.
