Zipper Interactive Developing SOCOM 4
by Jeff Gerstmann on
Original SOCOM team to take on the next true sequel in Sony's original online shooter franchise.
Wait, let me do that again.
It's SOCOM 4!!!! Here are three screenshots!!!!
There. Somewhere, Method Man--enough of a SOCOM fan to include references to it on an album--just dropped whatever smoking device he was using and grinned. He's not quite sure why, but he'll know soon enough.
The game is scheduled to be released this fall on the PlayStation 3 and will contain a full single-player component as well as 32-player multiplayer.
You may remember that Zipper was the original developers of the SOCOM series, which quickly became the main reason that the PS2's crazy online adapter thing was worth owning. While Zipper was focused on MAG, Slant Six released SOCOM: Confrontation as a downloadable PS3 release, and it... didn't really do anything for me. I don't think that's entirely Slant Six's fault, of course, but I'll definitely say that it's good to hear that the original studio is back on mission.
Geoff Keighley's GameTrailers TV will exclusively run the first video from SOCOM 4 tonight on Spike TV.
