From the other thread.

I didn't know if it was noteworthy (maybe thread worthy too?), but...

apparently Guerrilla Games registered these domains prior to E3 (announcement incoming?)...

http://whois.domaintools.com/horizonthegame.com
http://whois.domaintools.com/horizonthegame.net
http://whois.domaintools.com/horizonthegame.org
EDIT: There's more here:

Will just pop our link here if that's okay... We, er, did do the minor detective work on this one... Plus, there's a bit more information on the registrations in our story:

Poria Torkan, who served as a producer at the first-party firm for almost five years, registered HorizontheGame.com, HorizontheGame.net, and HorizontheGame.org in late March. The addresses point to placeholder pages at the minute, but will likely be updated once the title is officially announced. The timing is interesting, as the studio just created a Twitter account, too.

EDIT 2: Some useful information:

Useful information if you want to include it in the OP.

Guess I should post what was learned in the concept art leak thread

- Red-haired female protagonist
- 3rd person open world
- John Gonzales (Lead Writer for Fallout: New Vegas) is working on this.
- They hired CD Projekt Red quest designers and other experienced RPG developers.
- It has co-op (not sure if Shinobi ever made a follow-up post saying if it was local, online, or both.)
To name a few:
- Lead cinematic artist/cinematic director of The Witcher 3
- A dialog writer who previously worked on Shadow of Mordor joined the writing team
- A freelance writer from Blizzard
- A game designer who worked on Elder Scrolls Online
- And several creature artists and game designers who worked on Medieval RPGs
The only LinkedIn pages that I can see

Great. Hoping there's some meat to the game other than the visuals. It's their first RPG, so I'll tread a little carefully. New IP is always welcomed though.

Six years in the oven, it's probably Sony's biggest game yet.

EDIT: Assuming this is a fall 2016 game.

Awesome. Been a great month for Dinosaurs.

Really excited to see what they have going on with this game.

E3 is always the gift that keeps on giving for my birthday (which was last Thursday) so hopefully Guerrilla can deliver a great Dino game that have been lacking for so long.

I don't care if it's robo dinos or not. Just present a cool new concept, and I'm on board.

GG seems to make every other game decent.

KZ1-garbage. Yes even back then.
KZ2-Great
KZ3-Meh
KZ Vita-Great
KZ PS4-Meh

So this is looking good based on that formula.

I mentioned this in the other thread, but it's a bit weird because Torkan left Guerrilla for Bungie in what I'd imagine is early May, if the retweets on his Twitter are anything to go by, and the domain was last updated on May 23.

(What's with May 23 today? That Battletoads cache page is also as it was on May 23.)

God fuck yes. Guerrilla has a track record of coming close to concept art ideals so this should be good, also will probably be my third ps4 game if true.

This needs to be an infinitely more interesting IP than Killzone. I'm giving you another chance here Guerilla.

I love strategy RPGs, but based on the concept of the game, it would work better as an action RPG imo.
I don't like strategy Rpgs. I meant old school ff battle system, or legend of legaia, Shadow Hearts, Ect...I really don't like open world to much. Have yet to finish one.
