Voice actor Janina Gavankar made waves in the gaming community this week after accidentally leaking that a sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, an action role-playing game developed by Guerrilla Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment (SNE), is in the works.
While speaking to fans at a Star Wars celebration in full cosplay as her Battlefront character Iden Versio, Gavankar replied to a fan’s comment regarding Horizon Zero Dawn, saying, “It’s incredible, wait ’til you see the sequel. You’re gonna die — I know some secrets! — you’re gonna die.”
The fallout since the comment has largely been limited to a crackdown of all video content proving the statement, including clips on Twitch and YouTube. It’s currently unclear if, or when, Guerrilla Games will officially come out to announce the sequel. The information currently lives on in a Reddit post.
The original title was released for PlayStation 4 in early 2017. The plot follows Aloy, a hunter in a world overrun by machines, who sets out to uncover her past. The player uses a variety of ranged weapons and a spear to stealth combat mechanized creatures. The player can explore the open world to discover side quests.
