Horizon Online Has Not Been Cancelled – Rumor

With The Last of Us Online cancelled, the rumored Twisted Metal game from Firesprite axed and SIE London Studio shuttered, Sony is seemingly re-evaluating its live service plans. However, despite layoffs for 900 employees, including studios like Guerrilla Games, Insomniac Games and Naughty Dog, it seems the Horizon online game is reportedly still alive.

This is according to Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, who replied “No” on Twitter when asked if the title was cancelled. Announced in December 2022, it’s set in the same universe with new characters to interact with and a “unique stylized look” as players team up and explore the “majestic wilds.” A new internal team is handling development, but thus far, there’s no release window or even an official name.

Guerrilla Games will continue to create further single-player titles starring Aloy, though it hasn’t officially revealed the follow-up to Horizon Forbidden West. The studio was hiring for its online, single-player and external project teams. With today’s layoffs, it remains to be seen how many new hires were affected. Stay tuned for more details on the project in the meantime.

It's reassuring for Horizon players to know that it wasn't cancelled I guess.


So many rumors and leaks anymore hard to go off of what's which or real or not.
