Details of the plot for the upcoming television adaptation of Horizon Zero Dawn have leaked, with games industry insider Jeff Grubb revealing information on his Grubbsnax show.
According to Grubb, the adaptation will be titled Horizon 2074, placing its setting more than 1,000 years before the events of the game. Its story will "split between the timeline you see in the games and the timeline of where things begin to fall," Grubb said.
The show as pitched won't be "a reboot, or remake or reimagining of the game's story line," per Grubb. Instead, it will complement the stories of both Zero Dawn and its sequel, Forbidden West, and "take place parallel [to them] and explain other elements that happen." He also said it's likely the show will shoot in Toronto because of favorable tax credits in the city.
Although Grubb wasn't prepared to say which streaming platforms the show would hit, it's being made by Netflix, so that's likely a safe bet.
Sony has several other adaptations in the works, including for God of War, Gran Turismo, and, closest to release, The Last of Us. That show, produced by HBO, is expected to finish shooting this month.
