If we know the Guerrilla Games studio already busy following up on Aloy’s adventures with the highly anticipated Horizon Forbidden West, the future could well be written … in the plural.
As Sony still watches over the smoldering ashes of the tangled blaze surrounding the cross-generational release of Horizon Forbidden West, studio Guerrilla Games is once again beefing up its troops and recruiting for a new project that could open the door. field of possibilities.
In the port of Amsterdam, there are sailors who recruit
For a month now, job offers have been multiplying on the page dedicated to job offers on the side of Amsterdam: producer, host or screenwriters … the list is long, and already seems to indicate that Guerrilla Games is looking into the post-Horizon Forbidden West. Indeed, new vacancies just published come to put the chip in the ear, starting with that of Senior Social Systems Designer, which aims to link players together:
The Guerrilla team aims to captivate and reward players of all skill levels. To maintain a form of engagement on their part, we are developing a wide variety of content and systems: our designers work closely with other teams (narrative, artistic, technical, etc.) to create experiences that offer a chance to form rewarding social relationships.
The clues in favor of a new multiplayer oriented game accumulate as we go through the job description:
As a Social Systems Designer, you will design features and systems to promote a healthy and fun experience for our gaming community, in order toengage players in lasting relationships, in which compatible profiles can form guild-like groups to explore the game world together
An offer for a screenwriter position published yesterday also mentions an “evolving fictional world” which could very well be understood as the setting for this multiplayer approach. Therefore, the bets are open to try to know if Guerrilla Games hopes to offer a new online mode to its new flagship license, or if it is a completely different license, resolutely multiplayer.
Our colleagues from Video Game Chronicle believe that an online mode had already been considered for the release of Horizon Zero Dawn before being abandoned to meet the deadlines. So we’ll let you tell us about your desires and other anonymous hallway noises in the comments below!
