The developers of the famous multiplayer game Lineage will develop MMORPG on Horizon universe
Sony's gaming executives have repeatedly voiced two key points of their new strategy:
- Big plans for the Horizon franchise.
- Betting on service games.
The news below demonstrates that the Japanese company has already begun to fulfill both points.
Here's What We Know
South Korean publication MTN has learned that Sony and Korean developer NCSoft - author of the famous multiplayer game Lineage - have signed a deal to create an MMORPG based on the Horizon universe.
NCSoft is already hiring employees to work on the project under the working title Project H. It is believed that this is the designation of the multiplayer game in the Horizon franchise.
Sony has long planned to add multiplayer elements to Horizon: Zero Dawn and Horizon: Forbidden West, but in the end these games remained single-player projects. Now, the experienced Korean team will create the MMORPG on Horizon universe with a wide audience.
Horizon universe is remarkable for its originality and authenticity. In it, humanity survived a global catastrophe and descended to the level of ancient civilizations, and the Earth is inhabited by beast-like robots. So far, two parts of the game have been released, which are very popular among gamers.
Judging by the open-ended Forbidden West ending and the developers' hints, gamers can expect the third part of Horizon.
