The job listing for a Narrative Director at Guerrilla Games states that the upcoming multiplayer Horizon game will feature “a diverse team of writers creating new characters and stories.” This suggests that the game will have its own separate storyline and cast of characters, independent of Aloy’s ongoing saga.
This is in line with what Guerrilla has said about the game in the past. In a December 2022 blog post, the studio said that the multiplayer game will be set in the Horizon universe but will feature “a new cast of characters and a unique stylized look.”
The job listing also mentions that the multiplayer game will be “a cooperative experience,” suggesting that it will be a team-based game where players work together to achieve common goals.
It’s still too early to say much more about the multiplayer Horizon game, but it’s clear that Guerrilla is taking a big swing with this project. The studio is known for its single-player games, so it will be interesting to see how it fares in the multiplayer space.
