Well what to say... I simply love the Killzone universe. While I thought that Killzone's 2 campaign wasn't too good, I did enjoy a lot the atmosphere and how the helghast were represented. I was one of the few people that enjoyed the ending, because of the fresh posibilities it can bring to the series.
Analizing WW2 and Killzone, we can see that the helghast ( germans) invade but are beaten back ( USSR, US). However, at the end of the second game, Visari is dead alongside the Isa invaders, so now, there´s really no direct comparison to the development of WW2. What the developers do is completely up to them.
As such, I would like to hear your opinions of how you think the story will continue. Now that some info On KZ3 has been leaked, we have certain pieces that we can string together.
On my part, I think the game will still take place on Helghan, as the Gamepro scans show that the game takes in a place far away from home, that I consider to be Vekta. Also, it says that you will feel outnumbered, which can be explained by the fact that most of the ISA army was killed with the nuke. Maybe the game will specifically take place on another part of Helghan, and will see Sev and the rest of the ISa forces trying to survive until help arrives. For sure another strong Helghast leader will arise as a crossover between Radec and Visari. The commander of the fleet that flies over the palace will be the new leader.
Everything seems to be going nice at this point, however I am worried about the "helghast demonstrating they still have some humanity left in them". This sounds so much like they are going to surrender and regret about what they have done, and I think that that would be quite crappy. The helghast are cool because of the strong commitment they have towards their race and ideals. I would like to see them succeding in their struggle or fighting to the end, not surrendering agaisnt the ISA.
