It’s no secret that everyone in the industry is waiting for a Horizon Zero Dawn 2 announcement. The sequel is inevitable, and news is due around now. But there may be a different Aloy adventure planned in the interim, which may explain Guerrilla Games’ silence. One that will have you walking a mile in her shoes.
That’s because a PSVR version is possibly in production, under the guardianship of London Studio. But it’s hard to say if fans have deciphered a Tweet correctly, or are simply reading too much into the sentence.
I’ll let you decide.
The post in question was published by Callum Hurley – a VR industry veteran who should know his stuff. And included the word horizon with a capitalised h. This inevitably led to much speculation, especially as it can’t really be explained as a typo. But could it be too good to be true?
“Was recently made aware of a very exciting new PlayStation VR game coming out of London Studio. Not sure whether it’ll be for PS4, PS5 or both, but it’s really exciting, and an announcement could be on the Horizon…”
Now, you should see their logic. “Horizon” is surely a deliberate reference that can only mean one thing. But even if that’s true, we’re still in the dark as to whether it will be the original adventure – transposed – or a whole new game to enjoy.
As is the case with VR as a whole, games made from scratch tend to result in a better immersive experience. However, a number of classics have been converted to goggle view with good results. And so long as they sell, there’s little incentive to go above and beyond.
It’s better just to save those ideas and efforts for the sequel.
Would you be satisfied with Horizon Zero Dawn on PSVR – nothing more, nothing less? Or do you think a standalone story would be more suited? Draw your bow and fire a comment our way.
