Killzone developer Guerilla Games has contacted Eurogamer to denouce an email posted on the GameSpot forums, supposedly from the studio's development director, as a hoax.
The poster claimed he had emailed Guerilla with an enquiry about the Killzone PS3 demo shown at E3, rumoured to be sped up CGI rather than real time footage.
Guerilla's "reply" confirmed the rumour, adding that the game was "looking just as impressive as the demo."
But according to Guerilla's Alastair Burns, the email is "unfortunately a hoax. No such communication originated from our offices.
"To date we have made no official statements regarding our current crop of games, nor our intentions," he went on.
"We have no plans to do so in the near future either."
