Speaking with MCV UK, Sony Interactive Entertainment UK product supervisor Jon Edwards has expressed a want for Aloy, the sport’s protagonist, to change into one among Sony’s flagship characters, alongside the likes of Nathan Drake and Sackboy. “She’s a PlayStation icon of the future”, he stated.

Later within the interview, he clarifies his place additional: “nothing has been announced to date but I think there’s a lot of potential for this to be an exciting new franchise for us – we’ll just have to wait and see.”

What this implies, after all, is that if the sport sells properly we’ll see a sequel, and that Aloy in all probability isn’t going wherever. This would possibly appear to be a no brainer, but it surely reveals that Sony is fairly invested within the recreation’s success.

Horizon: Zero Dawn launches solely for PS4 on February 28.
