Guerrilla Games has provided the strongest hint to a Horizon Zero Dawn 2 announcement with a job advertisement on the developer’s website.
Guerrilla’s post for a Technical Vegetation Artist does not mention the project the applicant would be working on, but the following description in the advert provides a strong hint:
“Within Guerrilla, we have four teams dedicated to creating the stunning environments of Horizon. One team focuses on the creation of lush and stunning vegetation. We build these 3D models from scratch, so our world dressing teams can deliver our immersive world with industry-benchmark graphics.”
A Horizon Zero Dawn sequel has been teased previously. Actress Janina Gavankar was filmed during Star Wars Celebration saying to a fan: “Just wait until you see the sequel.”
Furthermore, art director Jan-Bart van Beek also spoke about adding more machines soon after the first game was released.
