A job listing on LinkedIN suggests that Microsoft could be working on a game similar to Horizon Zero Dawn. The profile of Sandor Roberts is looking for gaming developers to fill the position of Lead Environment Artist for a “AAA Nextgen title with the style similar to Horizon Zero Dawn”.
This is great news (but also weird) for Xbox fans who haven’t picked up a PS4 and want an open-world adventure.
It’s hard to know when we’ll see this game revealed, but the job listing is 2 months old which means that the project could already be in development.
It’s the kind of game that Xbox definitely needs in their lineup of games. These type of experiments are paramount to gaming at the moment and it’s very clear that Xbox lacks open-world adventure games.
