Killing Floor 2 released back in 2015, a fact which Tripwire president John Gibson mentioned during the PC Gaming Show today in response to a question about what's ahead for the studio. "We're really thinking about what's next for the Killing Floor franchise," he said. "So stay tuned."

For the moment, Tripwire is getting ready for the launch of Chivalry 2 (opens in new tab) sometime later this year (we learned earlier this week that it'll have crossplay with consoles) and making plans for Maneater updates.

"We're taking the community feedback and looking at things we can add to [Maneater]," Gibson said.

Nothing too unexpected there, and Gibson's comment about Killing Floor is only a hint, but it would hardly be surprising if Tripwire started building a new game in the series. Along with Red Orchestra, Killing Floor is what made Tripwire what it is today, and there's no reason to expect it to end where it is now.

Regarding where Killing Floor 2 is today, Tripwire just recently released a new update, and it's free to play this weekend if you haven't tried it out. It was one of my favorite co-op games back when it released, and probably would be again if I coaxed a few buddies back in for some Zed Time.

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
