Sony coy on Euro Killzone 2 date

Targeting "similar timeframe" to US.

Sony is reluctant to stamp a European date on Killzone 2 after a US bigwig confirmed the shooter for a 27th February across the pond.

"We are targeting a similar timeframe for the release of Killzone 2 in the PAL regions; specific launch dates will be communicated at a later date," a Sony Europe spokesperson whispered into the Eurogamer ear. Ear.

Kyle Schubel, managing director for Killzone 2, confirmed the US date in an episode of G4 (picked up by Kotaku).

The 27th February happens to be a Friday, which is quite an unusual date for an American release, since they usually happen on Tuesdays. Could it be a worldwide date? We can think of no other explanation. Mind you, we haven't tried very hard.

We've waited rather a long time for Killzone 2, the game spectacularly target-rendered all those E3 events ago. Fortunately, the end product appears to be looking good, as our hands-on Killzone 2 impressions should point out.
