Sony Interactive Entertainment might perform on a remastered version of Horizon Zero Dawn for the PlayStation 5.
Horizon Zero Dawn is set to become the latest game from the Sony library to get a remaster. An unnamed source within Sony mentioned by MP1ST and Video Games Chronicle pointed to a remastered version of the open-world PlayStation 4 title.
The remaster’s details are scarce but reportedly include new character models, lighting, and animations. It’s also likely to incorporate new accessibility features, quality of life improvements, and compatibility with the DualSense controller, mirroring some of the progress we saw with the remastered version of The Last of Us, which came out in earlier September.
Sony and Guerilla Games are also reportedly operating on a multiplayer label set in the Horizon universe. In 2018, Guerilla Games rehired Simon Larouche, game director, to run an unnamed project. Some of Larouche’s credits include performing on Rainbow Six Siege and the online ways for Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Killzone 2.
Guerrilla Games is the first-party Dutch video game developer based in Amsterdam and the region of PlayStation Studios. The company was established as Lost Boys Games in January 2000 by merging three smaller development studios as a multimedia partnership company Lost Boys associate.
Lost Boys Games became self-sustaining the following year and was developed by the Media Republic in 2003, renaming the studio Guerrilla Games before being bought by Sony Interactive Entertainment in 2005. As of June 2021, the company engages 360 people under the leadership of joint studio heads Jan-Bart van Beek, Angie Smets, and Michiel van der Leeuw. It is best known for the Horizon and Killzone game series.
A now-deleted tweet from voice performer Lance Reddick indicates that Horizon Forbidden West DLC may also be coming soon.
If the gossips are true, The Horizon Zero Dawn remaster will join several other Sony exclusives redone for the PlayStation 5, including Ghost of Tsushima, Spider-Man, and Uncharted 4. However, like The Last of Us remaster, the Horizon Zero Dawn remaster is anticipated to be rated at $69.99.
