Developing a brand new IP can be a pretty risky move, especially when your best known for one long standing game series. Guerrilla Games and Sony clearly struck a chord with Horizon Zero Dawn, however, selling 2.6 million copies of the game in its first two weeks on sale. It makes the game the best-selling new first party IP on the PS4 and Guerrilla’s biggest game launch.
It should really come as no surprise that Guerrilla’s Managing Director Herman Hulst said, “This is only the beginning of Aloy’s story and our exploration of the world of Horizon Zero Dawn, with the team already hard at work on an expansion to the story.”
In other words, we can expect to see a game called Horizon First Dawn, Horizon Second Dawn, Horizon Zero Dawn Part Two Two, Horizon Zero Dawn Thirty, Horizon Zero Dawn Part Two, or whatever it is they decide to call the sequel. Another interpretation might be that they’re now working on DLC for this game.
Either way, I’m looking forward to hunting some more Zoids.
