Horizon Zero Dawn Remaster

PS5 Remaster of Horizon: Zero Dawn Reportedly in the Works

Sony isn’t quite done with giving some of its recent releases a spruce-up for the PlayStation 5 era. Rumors reported in MP1st and corroborated by VGC and Gematsu suggest that Guerrilla Games is working on a remaster or remake of 2017’s Horizon: Zero Dawn. Originally a PS4 exclusive, the game launched on PC in August 2020.

Targeted for the PS5, the Horizon: Zero Dawn remaster (or remake) would upgrade the graphics yet further, to match Horizon: Forbidden West, which released in February 2022 for PS4 and PS5. Additionally, accessibility options and other improvements put in place for the sequel, as well as graphical and performance settings, would be part of the project.

A second rumor in MP1st‘s report also claims that Guerrilla Games is working on a multiplayer game based on Horizon, with customization or gameplay based on the various tribes of Horizon‘s world. Gematsu, meanwhile, verified that the Horizon: Zero Dawn remaster and multiplayer projects are on a leaked list purporting to reveal various Sony Interactive Entertainment projects.

If this sounds familiar, it lines up with what Sony and Naughty Dog did for The Last of Us, wherein it remade 2013’s The Last of Us as The Last of Us Part 1, bringing its graphics, features, and accessibility options up to par with (and beyond) its sequel, The Last of Us Part 2. Sony also remastered Marvel’s Spider-Man, rereleasing it as a PS5-native game just ahead of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales in November 2020.

Horizon: Zero Dawn is available on the PS4 and PC. Horizon: Forbidden West is available on PS4 and PS5.
