A tweet about available job openings at developer Guerrilla Games confirmed the existence of a web-based game set in the identical universe as Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West.
“We’re continuing to create epic solo adventures for Aloy. But there’s more,” a tweet by LifeAtGuerrilla says. “A latest internal team is developing a separate Online Project set in Horizon’s universe. Featuring a latest solid of characters and a singular stylized look, friends will have the opportunity to explore the majestic wilds of Horizon together.”
Rumors about this Horizon Online Project first emerged in an MP1ST report in October 2022 that also claimed a remaster or remake of Horizon Zero Dawn for PS5 was within the works. Guerilla Games’ tweet doesn’t mention any potential Horizon Zero Dawn re-release.
Just like Blizzard’s survival game and Respawn’s Star Wars games’ reveals earlier this 12 months, this announcement is nearly solely related to job openings so details on the sport itself are scarce. Guerrilla Games continues to be within the means of hiring animators, artists, game designers, and writers for the sport, so it’s likely a way out from release. It’ll likely be a part of PlayStation’s upcoming live service push, which will even impact series like The Last of Us.
The Horizon Online Project doesn’t have a release date, but we now understand it is in energetic development at Guerrilla Games. Within the interim, PlayStation Studios announced at The Game Awards 2022 that the Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores expansion shall be released exclusively for PS5 on April 19, 2023. Guerrilla’s message also suggests that we will expect a follow-up to Horizon Forbidden West starring Aloy eventually.
