From the LinkedIn profile of the Game Director Simon Larouche, we can see that Guerilla Games has been working on an unknown game since the beginning of 2018.
Simon Larouche, a game director at Guerilla Games, has an interesting tip on his LinkedIn profile. We can see from his resume that the Dutch development studio has been developing an unannounced game since February 2018.
This confirms an earlier rumor that Guerilla Games is working on another game in addition to Horizon Forbidden West. In any case, the action RPG sequel will be released by the end of this year, even if this cannot be promised. However, because the still unknown game has been in development for over three years, its release may not be too far off.
At the moment we can only speculate what is behind this project. In addition to the Horizon franchise, Guerilla Games is known for the Killzone series. Between 2006 and 2009 Larouche worked on the second part and was responsible for the layout of the multiplayer maps, the online functions, and the gameplay elements.
Relevant experience for a new title of the popular shooter series would definitely be available. The game director can look back on many years of experience and, in addition to Killzone 2, has worked on well-known titles such as Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6: Siege, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and Watch Dogs 2. But this project could just as well be a completely new IP.
What kind of game awaits us with it, we will probably only find out after the release of Horizon Forbidden West.
