Guerrilla Games can develop another game in the Horizon world. The creators are looking for specialists in network production and, according to current information, the team can implement a cooperative adventure project.
Guerrilla Games is officially working on the second story Aloy and Horizon Forbidden West next year will debut on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. However, as it turns out – developers can work on another title, including IP.
The studio has posted new job advertisements seeking candidates ” with a passion for the gaming community and community features” who can “explore the creative ways in which players can connect with others in production . ” According to the announcement, the developer will be working with a core team that includes many developers focused on “social systems and player engagement” and will be tasked with providing high-quality features.
In a different position, the Horizon Forbidden West authors are looking for an experienced writer who has “extensive knowledge of the story and narrative design of open world RPG, online games, and MMORPGs . ” His job will be to create “missions, write quests and design narratives . “
There is no mention of Horizon Zero Dawn or Horizon Forbidden West anywhere in the announcement itself, but VGC’s Andy Robinson has previously reported that he has received details of working on a co-op for the series.
Sony studio wanted to provide this element in the first installment, but at some point gave up the idea. There is even a graphic that has been verified by the editors on the web – this is conceptual material from the initial plans of Guerrilla Games, which wanted to take care of multiplayer gameplay. The game at that time was supposed to resemble Monster Hunter from Capcom.
VGC even received a message that Sony wanted cooperation in Horizon Forbidden West, but the developers gave up on this idea. The creators prefer to prepare a standalone network spin-off or throw the mode into Horizon 3.
It is very possible that the work on Horizon Forbidden West is nearing completion, so some of the team is already busy with the sequel, or at the same time the development of the second game has started – after all, the brand enjoys a lot of interest, so there will probably be people willing to see “Monster Hunter in the Aloy world”.
