Big news from SCEE’s PlayStation Day ’08 event in London today. Killzone 2, Guerrilla Games’ PS3 uber-FPS, has now been officially confirmed for a February 2009 launch (in Europe at least, no word yet if this is a global launch date), once and for all settling the dispute about whether or not it’d be coming out this year as hoped for. The new screenshot posted above was also released today, and there’s a sweet new trailer out as well that I’ll post up if I can. Here’s a snippet from SCEE’s PlayStation Day press release regarding Killzone 2.

The battle continues as Killzone 2 comes to PS3, with the ISA taking the war to the Helghast in an all-out assault on the hostile planet Helghan, where the Helghast will prove an even more formidable foe on their own turf. You’ll find yourself immersed in an all-encompassing theatre of war where no piece of the environment remains untouched by the carnage. Play as Sev, a battle-hardened veteran of Special Forces unit The Legion. Your mission: to secure Pyrrhus, Helghan’s capital city. February 2009 will see the arrival of this truly next-gen Killzone title and a conflict more destructive than you’ve ever witnessed before.
