Horizon Forbidden West followers can count on extra of the franchise sooner or later, as developer Guerrilla Video games nonchalantly confirms its follow-up.
Whereas Horizon Forbidden West‘s story made it fairly apparent a sequel will finally occur, it is uncommon to see a developer so casually acknowledge the very fact years forward of launch. That is been the case with the latest update on Guerrilla Games’ official website (opens in new tab).
The official replace particulars a change in administration as Guerrilla Studio Director and Govt Producer Angie Smets has taken a job as Head of Improvement Technique at PlayStation Studios.
“We’ve got full confidence in our new management as they steer Guerrilla in the direction of a brilliant future, increasing the world of Horizon with Aloy’s subsequent journey and our thrilling on-line undertaking,” the assertion concludes, each confirming protagonist Aloy’s third outing in addition to hinting on the Horizon MMORPG reportedly within the works.
Extra mechanical adventures
It is trying like Sony desires to place Horizon as considered one of its key mental properties, particularly now that we all know a sequel to the PS5 hit is within the works or, on the very least, within the very early levels of growth.
This’ll be reassuring information for Horizon followers, particularly because the franchise has had an unlucky launch schedule so far. In 2017, Horizon Zero Daybreak was considerably overshadowed by Nintendo Swap launch title Breath of the Wild. Once more, in 2022, Horizon Forbidden West needed to sq. off in opposition to Elden Ring.

Each Guerrilla and Kojima Productions’ Dying Stranding have executed a outstanding job of showcasing the highly effective engine, and that is solely going to enhance with time and initiatives like Dying Stranding 2 and future Horizon sequels.
