Guerrilla Games May Finally Be Developing Horizon Zero Dawn Sequel

Killzone series creators Guerrilla Games is actively seeking a writer for what may be the sequel to their 2017 hit game Horizon: Zero Dawn.

After their critically acclaimed Horizon: Zero Dawn released back in February 2017, it was only a matter of time until Guerrilla Games developed a follow up to the best selling title which sold 10 million copies.

According to a recently updated job listing, Guerrilla Games is actively searching for a writer to help “push the boundaries” of their storytelling aspect of the game that will truly captivate its players with the games narrative and the characters they will meet throughout the journey.

Video games have certainly changed a lot over the past couple of years. Games like Fortnite have changed the landscape of gaming with their “free to play” option and still raking in millions of dollars. Yet some gamers prefer to play a game with a compelling story and a world that they can lose themselves into like 2018’s Red Dead Redemption 2.

So it makes sense that Guerrilla Games would want to one-up their already impressive Horizon: Zero Dawn with a new storyline and even more immersive gameplay.

As of right now, no title for a Horizon sequel has been announced but Guerrilla Games, as they did with their Killzone titles, will probably change the second half of their Horizon title or just follow up with Horizon: Zero Dawn 2. Which actually doesn’t sound or look all that bad.

Even though there is no confirmed release date because there is no writer on board as of yet, it can be assumed that Guerrilla Games would like to release the sequel to Horizon: Zero Dawn with the next generation of consoles likely to release in 2020.

What are your thoughts on Guerrilla Games possibly looking for a writer for the sequel to Horizon: Zero Dawn? Did you play the original game? What elements did you like and what do you think can be improved? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!

Here’s the synopsis for 2017’s Horizon: Zero Dawn:

In a world where Machines dominate the earth and mankind lives on in primitive tribal societies, one woman sets out to find her destiny among the remnants of the ancient past. As Aloy, you must brave the Machine-infested wilderness and unearth secrets that lie buried deep within the earth. Will you embrace your calling… or pass into oblivion unsung?

Horizon: Zero Dawn is available exclusively on PlayStation 4.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
