Actor Janina Gavankar all however confirmed the existence of Horizon: Zero Dawn 2 at Star Wars Celebration. One of the largest hits of 2017 was Horizon: Zero Dawn, a post-apocalyptic open-world survival recreation with awe-inspiring fight towards robotic dinosaurs. The recreation was a vital and industrial hit, resulting in an enlargement later that yr, The Frozen Wilds.
It’s been two years since Aloy’s debut journey, and hype for a sequel is excessive. While nothing has been formally introduced but, it is laborious to think about Sony refusing to maneuver ahead with a sequel to a recreation which offered over ten million copies; a formidable quantity, particularly for a console unique.
At Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, actor Janina Gavankar allegedly leaked the existence of Horizon: Zero Dawn 2. Best identified for her position because the lead character, Iden Versio, in Star Wars: Battlefront II, Gavankar additionally performed a key position in The Frozen Wilds. In a (now deleted) Twitch clip from Star Wars Celebration, Gavankar chats with a fan who praises her work on Horizon: Zero Dawn, to which Gavankar replies, “Wait till you see the sequel! You’re gonna die.”
Now, it is one factor for an actor to construct hype for any challenge by teasing a sequel, however Gavankar goes one step additional by teasing particulars. This definitely sounds much less like empty hype and extra like a real – if unintentional – reveal of a challenge at the moment in growth. Horizon: Zero Dawn made waves with its robo-dino motion and provocative “futuristic cave man” storytelling, to say nothing of Aloy herself being one in every of 2017’s breakout characters. Despite releasing the identical week as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Horizon: Zero Dawn nonetheless held its personal towards probably the most hotly-anticipated video games of the last decade, and each titles went on to be great successes.
What does the long run maintain for Horizon: Zero Dawn?

But when? In the previous, E3 would have been an apparent contender, however with Sony making the unprecedented transfer to skip E3 2019, maybe they’re saving it for one in every of their upcoming “State of Play” movies. It’s additionally doable that Sony is planning a giant PlayStation Experience for 2019 (after skipping it in 2018), which might be a becoming venue to disclose a recreation as necessary as Horizon 2.
Perhaps the largest query concerning Horizon: Zero Dawn 2 is whether or not the title is being deliberate for PlayStation 4 or the as-yet-unannounced PlayStation 5. If Janina Gavankar’s feedback are something to go by, we’ll discover out for certain quickly sufficient.
