Guild Wars Studio is reportedly working on a Horizon MMORPG

A new report suggests that South Korean studio NCSoft is working on a Horizon MMORPG.

An MMORPG Horizon is in preparation at the South Korean company NCSoft. A new entry in Guerrilla Games’ open-world action RPG series was released earlier this year, and it looks like the company is planning to expand the franchise in a completely different way in the future.

The above information comes from the news site MTN (Translated by VGC), which reports that NCSoft is currently recruiting for this supposed Horizon MMORPG.

The MMORPG Horizon is reportedly listed as “Project H” and, as mentioned, is headed by the studio known for Lineage and Guild War titles.

Interestingly, Guerrilla Games, the creators of Horizon Zero Dawn in 2017 and Horizon Forbidden West in 2022, were hiring for a multiplayer game earlier this year. At the time, many thought it was an online Horizon game, although the studio did not elaborate on its plan for said project.

If reports are to be believed, Guerrilla Games and NCSoft may be co-developing this MMORPG Horizon. That shouldn’t seem like a stretch since AAA Studios collaborates with other studios to work on projects. With NCSoft’s years of MMORPG expertise, it only makes more sense for PlayStation and Guerrilla Games to approach it to lead a Horizon MMORPG.

Earlier this year, PlayStation announced its ambitious plan to release ten live games by 2026. The MMORPG Horizon could be one of them. However, fans should take this information with a grain of salt as nothing has been confirmed by PlayStation or Guerrilla Games as of yet.

Either way, fans shouldn’t expect this rumored Horizon MMORPG to release anytime soon, especially since Guerrilla Games just released Horizon Forbidden West.
We do know, however, that the Horizon franchise is growing in other ways. Netflix announced earlier this year that it was working on a Horizon Zero Dawn TV series. Additionally, a Horizon PSVR 2 title called Horizon Call of the Wild is set to release in 2023.
As such, it’s safe to say that fans of the Horizon franchise have a lot to look forward to in the next two years.
Regarding the MMORPG Horizon, we will update this article once more information becomes available.
