PlayStation’s Horizon TV series will seemingly be called Horizon 2074, indicating that it’s partly set during the fall of civilization that takes place 1,000 years before the games.
The name was shared alongside a crew listing on the Directors Guild of Ontario websitematching reports from Jeff Grubb who shared the listing.
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

The 2074 date more or less matches up with the fall of civilization in the 21st century mentioned in the two PlayStation games (Zero Dawn and Forbidden West), which date it slightly earlier in 2066. The actual story of the Horizon games takes place around 1,000 years later.
Sony announced that Horizon would be expanding into a multimedia franchise in May alongside two other PlayStation game series: God of War and Gran Turismo. Little else is known about the Horizon 2074 other than it’s coming to Netflix.
Horizon: Forbidden West, the second game in the franchise, was released earlier this year (IGN said it was amazing), and the series is breaking more new ground with a virtual reality game called Call of the Mountain coming to the PlayStation VR2.
