Forums - Sony Discussion - [RUMOR] Horizon Zero Dawn 2 on The works, It was planned to be trilogy and HZ 2 planned for PS4 but shifted to PS5 to take advantage of new tech and architecture on PS5

Tagged games:

Wasn't a big fan of the first, I didn't like Aloy or any of the characters, though Sylens was pretty interesting and has a decent amount of mystery and intrigue around him. I personally wouldn't put it in my top 40 games this Gen, but even so I am very interested in seeing what's changed, added, and improved in the sequel, plus I'm sure it'll visually blow our minds.

Double post sorry.

Well based on what I just read this game is essentially cross gen with a cancelled PS4 version to capitalize on PS5 sales. Oh boy....certain people on the other side talked a lot of s%^* about Xbox cross gen so the idea that this game development started on PS4 makes me smile :)

Sales, we don't need you starting stuff like this. Just leave it alone.

Think of Kameo and Perfect Dark Zero. Two games built for Xbox, upgraded them for 360 and cancelled the last gen version. 

I don't think it matters on which platform it started out on. Fact is they will still be able to push their ambitions for HZD2 much further by not going cross gen.

I’m not responding to you-know-who. And it’s a legitimate observation and it can’t be disproven due to it being a rumor. It’s been what over 3 years since the original game came out? That’s a lot of time potentially developing on PS4.

Given the considerable negative cross gen agenda of the opposing side, it’s only fair. If people quote me, I’ll keep the forum guidelines in mind. 



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

Doesn't matter if it's a legitimate observation, it's also legitimately needless and it has little to do with 'you-know-who'. Just don't try to start stuff in here. Anything. History shows that it doesn't end well and I'm telling you not to do it.

No one's going to quote you either. It ends here.

Yeah, cross gen would be terrible, but this will be PS5 exclusive built from the ground up, unlike Xbox Series X exclusives being anchored to the Xbox One.  

Why does it matter if development started on the PS4? GG could of had PS5 devkits by 2018, the decima engine being refined for the PS5, pushing the SSD without having to optimise for the PS4, etc, the timeline is not clear. For all we know, a ton of assets for HZD2 could have been created on the PS4, but the development of the game shifted to PS5, which means stuff like level design (SSD), enemy types (IIRC flying was too much for the PS4 hardware), NPC's, quests, world size, were all started on the PS5.
