The Horizon Forbidden West expansion and VR spinoff will not be the last we see of Guerrilla Games’ Horizon universe. At least two more games for the PlayStation franchise are in the works, including a multiplayer title.
Guerrilla announced the news in a recruitment tweet. Along with more “epic solo adventures for Aloy,” the protagonist of the first two games, the studio has formed a separate team to work on a “online project set in Horizon’s universe.”
It went on to say that the latter will have new characters and a “unique stylized look,” as well as the ability for friends to play together, implying a focus on co-op.

Guerrilla had been rumored to be working on a multiplayer Horizon game since last year, and the studio has now confirmed this. Sony is putting more emphasis on live service games.
It intends to release ten of them by March 2026, including a multiplayer sequel to The Last of Us. However, it is currently unclear how the online Horizon game fits into that strategy.
There’s even more to come from the series, in addition to the three upcoming games and the Forbidden West DLC.
Netflix is working on a Horizon TV show. According to rumors, a mobile game and a Zero Dawn remaster for the PS5 are also in the works.
