PlayStation America CEO: "I think we’ll be in the Horizon business for a long time."
Shawn Layden talks about the future of Horizon: Zero Dawn.
Horizon: Zero Dawn was a massive success for PlayStation this year. Our review of the game reflects the massive sales as well. In the midst of this, Shawn Layden, President & CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment America spoke about the future of the franchise.
In an interview with The Telegraph, he said that there were plans to expand the series for years to come.
"That’s another studio I don’t tell them what to do. The Guerrilla team have spent 10 or 12 years on the Killzone franchise and Horizon Zero Dawn could not be more different from Killzone if it had tried. When they said they wanted to come up with an open world, heavily nature based kind of game using all the different colours they had never used in Killzone – like blue. And red, and yellow, and green – it was a big stretch goal for them but they nailed it.
The reception for the game has been fantastic. [Guerrilla Games head honcho] Hermen Hulst has got a very keen mind on where he wants to take Horizon and what the roadmap is – and that roadmap is expressed in multiple years. I think we’ll be in the Horizon business for a long time."
So then what's next for Horizon: Zero Dawn?At E3, we learned about its new DLC, The Frozen Wilds but it seems like Guerilla Games has more plans than just this.
The Frozen Wilds does take us to a new section of the world in Horizon. The price tag is $19.99 and it will be out later this year.
