New Horizon Series Leaks!
A games journalist has spotted leaked information regarding the upcoming Horizon Zero Dawn Netflix series, including the name and the filming location of the show.
Jeff Grubb has spotted the new series’ page on the Directors Guild of Canada’s website that confirms the new series’ name is set to be Horizon 2074. According to Grubb, Toronto is confirmed to be the filming location and is also likely to be where the show takes place in order to capitalize on the city’s tax incentives. The DGC’s webpage also confirms a great number of the crew are already hired which is a great indicator that the project is well into its pre-production phase.
The name of the series, Horizon 2074, also indicates that the game will take place almost 50 years in the future. Given that the games take place starting in the year 3020, the Netflix series seems to be focusing more on the events that have originally led to humanity’s doom and could possibly serve as a prequel to the games. Toronto being the city where the events of the series take place should also line up perfectly with the games as they were set in North America without ever specifying which city or country.
Here is the crew for Horizon 2074. This confirms the name as well as filming in Toronto. As I reported previously, the show will likely be set in Toronto as per conditions of tax incentives. https://t.co/J20WWdtRN6

Horizon Zero Dawn has proved itself as one of the biggest PlayStation IPs ever as it was very well received when it first launched in 2017 and has since sold more than 20 million copies. The game features a post-apocalyptic world where humanity is almost extinct and the machines are merged with the animals posing a real danger to the tribes. The game has also launched its first sequel known as Horizon Forbidden West in early 2022, which is also now considered a fan favorite.
Both Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West are available for purchase now on the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5. Horizon Zero Dawn is also available on PC.
