Sony just announced that SOCOM 4, the latest installment in Zipper Interactive’s acclaimed tactical military shooter, is not only officially in the works, but it will be released this fall.
Details are understandably few at this point, but Zipper community manager Jeremy Dunham posted the following description over at the PlayStation Blog that should get SOCOM fans’ pulses racing:
"A militant revolutionary has unexpectedly seized control in an important South Asian country. As the Ops Com, your mission is to command an elite five-man squad charged with stopping his aggressive agenda before it’s too late. In only six days, you must lead your team through a hostile jungle and urban environments against an army of well-armed rebel insurgents that completely outnumber you."
Dunham goes on to assure fans of Zipper’s massive online shooter MAG that just because SOCOM 4 inlcudes a hefty 32-player multiplayer component doesn’t mean Zipper will be abandoning support for their first-person shooter.
"We’re still fully committed to supporting MAG for a long, long time, and the addition of another game in our lineup doesn’t change that."
So, SOCOM fans? What are your hopes for the next chapter in the franchise?
