PS4 News Game News PS5 News

Originally set for a late 2021 release, the sequel to the award winning action role-playing game will now be releasing in February 18th, 2022. The reason for the delay is mainly due to the impact of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.

The announcement regarding the delay came from the official Playstation team and Playstation Blog website, who managed to interview the Game Director over at Guerrilla Games


At that time, Horizon Forbidden West had just passed a major milestone and we had entered the final stage of development; on track, but a bit uncertain if we’d be able to polish the game to the level of quality we strive for.

It’s no surprise that our teams were hugely impacted by the global pandemic; we have been adjusting to new workflows, protocols, and other challenges, while keeping our teams safe and prioritizing a healthy work/life balance.

While the decision to move the game’s launch to 2022 certainly wasn’t easy, we’d like to take a moment to thank all of our fans for their unwavering support; we know how much you’ve been looking forward to reuniting with Aloy and her friends, continuing her story, and exploring a new and more dangerous world. Your passion, fan art, cosplay, virtual photography, and videos have meant the world to all of us.

There is a bit of good news though, in which a new update patch has been released on the Playstation 5 that will now allow players to enjoy the prequel, Horizon Zero Dawn, in an enhanced 60FPS.
