Next-Gen HORIZON: ZERO DAWN 2 Is Said to Be Gigantic in Scope and Include Cooperative Mode

The fact that Guerrilla Games is developing a sequel to 2017's Horizon: Zero Dawn has never been a well-kept secret, as the Amsterdam-based developer's first sandbox game is one of the most successful PS4–exclusive titles to date. Now, thanks to VGC, we've learned a whole lot more about Aloy's next adventures.

According to VGC's Andy Robinson, the development team at Guerrilla is planning a trilogy of games for the brave heroin, with its middle chapter releasing exclusively for the PlayStation 5 at some point in the future.

The next-gen entry in the Horizon: Zero Dawn series is reportedly "gigantic in scope" and much bigger than the first instalment, with more opportunities to freely explore its ruined (and also robot-infested) world.

Quite surprisingly, the sequel may even include a cooperative mode, although the studio is still debating whether to introduce it as a main story feature or a completely separate online competent. Apparently, Guerrilla was even planning to release a "standalone co-op game preview, with progress carrying over to the later, full version of Zero Dawn 2" at one point, but it's not clear if they are still chasing that idea.

As a friendly reminder, the PC version of the original Horizon will be published by Sony this summer.
