In an update that will shock absolutely no one, it seems that Guerrilla Games is working on a third mainline entry in its popular Horizon series. Yes, really. Try to keep calm.

Earlier today, the developer announced some of its top-level staff are shifting seats, with promotions leading to some new management and the technical director putting his focus on the Decima engine itself. However, one sentence in this update has caught the attention of Horizon fans, which pretty much says "We're making the next one" without properly saying it.

After spotlighting all the people moving up the ranks at Guerrilla, the statement goes on to talk about what comes next: "We have full confidence in our new leadership as they steer Guerrilla towards a bright future," it reads, "expanding the world of Horizon with Aloy's next adventure and our exciting online project."

So, in addition to the online multiplayer game we know is happening but hasn't been officially revealed, we can now say (with even more confidence than before) that Horizon 3 is coming. Hooray!

If these words from the dev aren't enough of a clue, Horizon Forbidden West — game number two in what will become a trilogy — ends with a lot left hanging in the air. No spoilers of course, but the seeds were clearly planted for a third game, which looks to raise the stakes even higher for Aloy and her allies.

Until that new game arrives, we have Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores, a DLC expansion that has our heroine exploring the ruins of Los Angeles. If you're playing through this now, take another look at our extensive Horizon Forbidden West guide, which now includes everything you might need regarding Burning Shores.
