    Zipper Interactive's Jeremy Dunham has revealed the existence of the studio's first post-MAG project, and it's SOCOM 4.

    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.

    I have never enjoyed the SOCOM games, but i'm glad to see that fans of the series will finally get a good and proper version of the game again.

    Nothing against Socom but when Sony said that there was a secret game I was really hoping for something else. Happy for Socom fans though.

    If they optimised the game like God of War III, and thought of some really intense military situations then i could see this game being awesome-sauce

    Don't we already have MAG? I'd rather we wait a year or two for another SOCOM and Sony devote resources to something else while we see how MAG does.

    I quite liked the new PSP game (Fireteam Bravo 3) so I have some interest in this. It's just a little too hardcore for me.

    Also, for those disappointed with the announcement -- Syphon Filter PS3, Starhawk and MotorStorm 3 are all totally still in development. Just be patient.

    Comes out this fall... and Zipper had been working on MAG.  Hmmm, seems to me like they hired some more guys at Zipper to make this while the true Zipper guys were making MAG.  So they could say Zipper is making this, but who really knows if the guys who made the first Socom actually touched this.

    Confrontation is fine now, after all the patches.  Either way that game (and MAG) will simply be a wasteland the second this comes out.  I cannot wait.

    A modern military shooter?  How innovative!  Just like everything else these days it comes down to same shit different day.  Motion controls might be goofy, but at least they'll force games to change.

    Nice to see Zipper back making SOCOM. I think out of any game I've ever owned, S2 got the most playtime. Hopefully they can make something as good as 2.

    I'v played all the socom's on ps2 but never touched Confrontation. This fall, that's soon and Cod 7 will come out then too. I hope both will be great because Mw2 mulltiplayer was a huge fail.

    They didn't say big, they said surprise, and I don't think anyone expect SOCOM 4 as the announcement. 
     
    I'm really surpised that Zipper is moving on to another project so quickly (well I guess they've had this going for a while). I wonder why they would get something ready for the same year rather than support MAG for a while

    I think the time for SOCOM has kind of come and gone. But I guess if anyone is going to revive it, then it would Zipper.

    I recommend you read PSblog post before you go of on a rant like this. Zipper is big studio, 150 ppl and still hiring that's two teams just  like Insomniac, that is two teams. MAG will get support for long long times, those are their words, they say they have team devoted to MAG and it's not like they began working on Socom 4 yesterday, games seems to be far into debelopment, hell it is coming this year. Calm down and read.
