Rebellion talks Shellshock sequel

Remember Shellshock: Nam ‘67? The first game from now-Sony owned Guerilla Games stirred up a little controversy back in the day, and was almost spectacular in its mediocrity. Well, in a discussion with Gamesindustry.biz, Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley revealed that his studio will be working on the sequel.

The tentatively titled Shellshock 2 will be the first title on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for Rebellion, who has been doing most of its recent work on the PSP, shipping some 12 titles to date including The Simpsons Game, Alien vs. Predator: Requiem and Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron.


Shellshock’s last appearance was less than stellar

When asked what Shellshock 2 will involve, Kingsley stated:

“It’s very much a mature product, it’s a bit like Jacob’s Ladder or Apocalypse Now in movie terms. It’s troubling – deliberately so – it’s meant to be challenging the nature of war, the horror and why people do these horrific things to each other. It’ll be our first next-gen title, which is slightly nervewracking, but it’s looking absolutely lovely.”

The rest of the interview goes on to discuss Rebellion’s experiences working with licensed IPs, and about owning IPs of their own, including Rogue Trooper and 2000AD.

So, will Rebellion be able to make a better game out of Shellshock than Guerilla? We’ll have to wait and see, but let’s hope that their recent dross on the PSP isn’t a sign of things to come.

Those rocks don’t look very next gen to me… More like something from the year 2000.

I am looking forward to this title… maybe something other than the simple desert motif that dusts our beloved console now.
