Future Horizon Zero Dawn Games Could Star Someone Other Than Aloy

February 20, 2017Written by Jason Dunning


In an interview with MCV earlier this month, PlayStation UK’s Jon Edwards said Aloy is a “PlayStation icon of the future,” and he thinks that Horizon Zero Dawn has a lot of potential to be a new franchise. Speaking with Gamereactor about the possible future of Horizon recently, Guerrilla Senior Producer Angela Gillespie said she thinks Aloy will always be a part of the series, but it doesn’t mean we’ll see her as the protagonist in future installments:

I think Aloy will always be a part of Horizon Zero Dawn, but as you might have seen, there is a big number of characters and tribes in the game, and we have a rich history. We spent years developing these tribes, so there is a possibility for other characters in the future, but Aloy will always remain in Horizon Zero Dawn.

The review embargo for Horizon Zero Dawn lifted earlier today, and we gave it a 10/10. In response to the reviews, members of Sony and Guerrilla sent out these tweets:

We’ll have an interview with Guerrilla Lead Concept Artist Roland Ijzermans up very soon. When we asked him if there’s any nods to Killzone in Horizon, he said, “You should look very hard.”

Horizon Zero Dawn releases on February 28 in North America and March 1 in Europe for PlayStation 4.
