Guerrilla Games is working on a multiplayer title that is set in the expanding world of Horizon, according to a new advertisement shared by the company today that is calling on talented people to join its existing Horizon teams in Amsterdam, which comprise the Horizon Single-Player (SP), Online Project (OP), and External Project (EP) teams.

“We are continuing to create epic solo adventures for Aloy. But there is more,” reads the image that the Life at Guerrilla account tweeted on December 16, 2022. “A new internal team is developing a separate Online Project set in Horizon’s universe.”

Guerrilla goes on to suggest that the game will look different from the current Horizon games (i.e., Horizon Zero Dawn, Horizon Forbidden West), teasing a new experience that is sure to include multiplayer.

“Featuring a new cast of characters and a unique stylized look, friends will be able to explore the majestic wilds of Horizon together.”

The existence of a multiplayer Horizon game surfaced earlier this year, with publications such as MP1ST alluding to a new Horizon online multiplayer title being in development for both PlayStation 5 and PC.

A remake or remaster of Horizon Zero Dawn is also in the works for the PlayStation 5, according to the publication.

Guerrilla Games announced Burning Shores on December 8, 2022, an expansion for Horizon Forbidden West that will see Aloy pursuing a sinister threat in the untamed wilds of Los Angeles, now a treacherous volcanic archipelago.

According to a trailer for Burning Shores, players will be able to visit key landmarks, including the Hollywood sign.

Horizon Call of the Mountain, a brand-new Horizon adventure currently in development at Guerrilla Games and Firesprite for PlayStation VR2, is set for release alongside the next-generation VR headset on February 22, 2023.

The PS VR2 will cost $549.99 when it launches next year.
