Horizon Zero Dawn has been confirmed during the Star Wars Celebration event in Chicago.
The game was seemingly confirmed by voice actor Janina Gavankar, who played Tatai in the game’s Frozen Wilds DLC.
Speaking to a fan at the Star Wars Celebration, Gavankar – who also voiced Iden Versio in Star Wars Battlefront 2 – said that she knew some secrets about the upcoming release.
“It’s incredible, wait ’til you see the sequel,” Gavankar said (via Reddit). “You’re gonna die – I know some secrets! – you’re gonna die.”
Unfortunately, however, if another leak is to be believed, fans may face a disappointingly long wait for Horizon Zero Dawn 2 to be released.
According to a PS5 leak posted to Pastebin, Horizon Zero Dawn is being held back for Sony’s next-gen console.
Worst still, the PS4 sequel is said to have a 2021 release date.
It’s worth taking the reports with a pinch of salt, especially as Sony is yet to make any official announcements about the PS5.
According to the Pastebin leak, the PlayStation 5 will either be released in March 2020 or November 2020, and will cost $499 (£380). Express Online has heard similar reports of a March 2020 launch from industry insiders.
With Sony skipping E3 this year, the report suggests that the PS5 will be unveiled at a smaller event in Q2 of 2019.
The report also alleges that the PS5 will cost $499 and be backwards compatible with the PS4.
Another interesting claim is that the PS5 will launch with regular PS Plus and PS Plus Premium.
The Premium subscription will give members the chance to play early access game betas and create private servers.
The next PlayStation is said to be powered by a 7nm Ryzen 8 Core CPU, 7nm Navi architecture 14TF GPU, 24GB of GDDR6 RAM and will come with a NAND flash 2TB hard drive. Fans can also expect 8K upscaling.
The new controller, meanwhile, will reportedly have improved analogue functionality and a built-in camera for VR.
