Horizon Zero Dawn Sequel Is Reportedly Part of a Planned Trilogy

More confirmation of Guerrilla's next-gen plans.

The next project for Guerrilla Games is still unannounced, but given recent rumblings, a Horizon Zero Dawn sequel is looking likely. Guerilla Games reportedly has some big plans in store for Horizon, including expanded online tie-ins and a next-gen target.

VideoGamesChronicle reports that Guerrilla Games is planning a trilogy of Horizon Zero Dawn games, which were greenlit by Sony after the first game's success. The sequel, Horizon Zero Dawn 2, allegedly entered development soon after the first's launch, and while it was initially planned for PlayStation 4, it's supposedly shifted to focus on PS5.

These big plans for Horizon Zero Dawn are interesting, especially given another feature the sequel could possibly include: co-op. According to VGC's report, a standalone co-op preview of the Zero Dawn sequel was planned, though it's not clear if that's still the case. Co-op and online functionality are reportedly both of interest to Sony and Guerrilla Games.

A deleted tweet earlier this week hinted at the possibility of a next-gen Horizon Zero Dawn sequel. It seems like a follow-up to the Sony exclusive robo-dino hunter is in the cards, though nothing's been announced yet.

The original Horizon Zero Dawn was confirmed to be making its way to PC last month, as more Sony exclusives look to the PC as a secondary platform. Hermen Hulst, a co-founder of Guerrilla Games, also took charge of PlayStation Worldwide Studios last fall. It's looking like the next generation of consoles will have big things in store for Guerrilla Games.
