Confirmation has come today that the next iteration in the explosive Red Faction series is currently in development.

Red Faction: Armageddon moves beneath the surface of Mars as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As Darius Mason, you'll fight to save humanity from an even greater evil that threatens to extinguish all life on the planet. For this iteration we can expect Volition's Geo-Mod 2.0 technology, to once again offer a range of physics-based weaponry affording us with the freedom to destroy stuff on a massive scale. However, in a unique twist, by using Darius' Magnet Gun they'll also be the opportunity to use reconstruction technology to help save humanity. From lava tubes to ice caves, we're promised a new playground for battles in both the single-player campaign and multiplayer co-operative modes.

This is how the new story goes:

Half a century after the Red Faction resistance freed Mars, the red planet again becomes a battleground. Colonists struggle for survival in the underground mines after the surface is rendered uninhabitable. When Darius Mason, grandson of revolution heroes Alec Mason and Samanya, unknowingly releases a long-dormant evil, Armageddon is unleashed on Mars. As settlements are torn asunder, only Darius and the Red Faction can save mankind. The battle will take them to the core of the storm-blasted planet through ice caves and lava flows until they are face to face against the unspeakable threat. You are humanity's last hope for survival.

No word on a release date as yet.

I thought Guerilla was a massive disappointment… GeoMod was better in RF1 and 2 imo, and Guerilla's combat was woeful, not to mention the driving sections.

If they don't tighten up the core before adding all of the fancy building features, it'll be another sub-par release no matter how elaborate and well-thought out it is.
I thought Guerilla was not a bad game but it could of been a lot better :):)
I personally loved guerilla. It was great fun just driving straight through a building, or using the nano rifle to eat the legs of a tower away and watch it tumble. Would love a repeat but doesn't sound like we're getting one. Shame.
