Waitrd along time for a new socom and didn't totally hate 4, but there are things in the online and single player missions I didn't like. I was wondering if anyone knows what will happen with the Socom franchise now that Zipper is gone. Will there be another Socom and will it be a little closer to preveious ps2 titles as far as online play speed, lobbies, and fredom of movment in campain mode?
They haven't officially retired the series, but I wouldn't count on seeing a new game for a while. As for the actual game itself, since there's no demo, no gameplay footage, not so much as a screen shot, and not even a development team at this point, it's impossible to say. If you were looking for a better answer, at this point the Magic 8 Ball knows as much as we all do.
Socom started going downhill after S2. the other socoms introduced some nice new features but over all they stunk. Give me S1 and S2 HD online and offline and im a happy camper. even if they didn't want to do a remake they certainly should use the devs for the first ones and come out with a new one. the maps, sounds, places, aiming, 1-3 shot deaths were all awesome. just seeing this thread makes me want to go plug in my ps2 and load those discs and play.
