The Netflix adaptation of Horizon Zero Dawn has found the person who will oversee the adaptation of the game.
It’s been announced by Netflix that Steve Blackman, currently the showrunner for The Umbrella Academy, will be in charge of the TV adaptation of Horizon Zero Dawn.
“Horizon Zero Dawn is an exceptionally well-crafted game with wonderful characters not often seen in the rank-and-file of the gaming world,” Blackman said. “Guerrilla Games has created an incredibly lush and vivid world of man and machine who find themselves on a collision course to oblivion. Their salvation comes in the form of a young female warrior named Aloy, who has no idea she’s the key to saving the world. Suffice it to say, yes, Aloy will be a main character in our story. My writing partner on this, Michelle Lovretta, and I are thrilled to be able to expand this remarkable IP into a series for all types of viewers.”
There’s still no release window for Netflix’s adaptation of Horizon Zero Dawn.
