Horizon Zero Dawn Sequel Confirmed by Voice Actor

A sequel for PlayStation 4-exclusive title Horizon Zero Dawn is seemingly confirmed by voice actor Janina Gavankar.

Back in February 2019, developer Guerrilla Games celebrated second anniversary of release for their 2017 action role-playing game Horizon Zero Dawn that sold over 10 million copies worldwide to become one of the best-selling PlayStation 4 games.

That level of success pretty much guarantees a sequel but rather than speculating, we have actress Janina Gavankar (Sleepy Hollow, True Blood), who voiced a character named Tatai in Frozen Wilds DLC confirming its existence lately.

At Star Wars Celebration 2019 ongoing event on Chicago, Gavankar met a fan who was cosplaying as her character Iden Versio from story campaign of Star Wars Battlefront II, telling Janina that she got into playing HZD because of her.

Gavankar only replied her back saying,
It's incredible, wait 'til you see the sequel. You're gonna die. I know some secrets! You're gonna die.

Their brief conversation was recorded on camera and Reddit user ninjyte pointed out to that Twitch clip, which has now been removed but since people never forgets anything on internet; we have found access to that moment.

Gavankar has only confirmed that a sequel is indeed in works and her character Tatai from Frozen Wilds expansion is returning as well. It seems that the game is far from completion and probably in some early stage of development.

Even though Sony is skipping E3 2019, they can simply make a grand reveal through one of their upcoming State of Play episode. It can also launch sometime in 2020, same year when PlayStation 5 is also eyeing for release.

Two years have passed and fans are excited to get a HZD sequel in spite of no announcement or anything from Guerrilla Games and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment but there are no reasons for them not wanting to continue making the next game.

Upon release, Horizon Zero Dawn turns out to be one of the most popular new PS4 franchises that surpassed other exclusive titles like God of War, Marvel's Spider-Man and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End on the same platform in overall sales worldwide.
