Sony has recently confirmed that Horizon Forbidden West release will be delayed until the next year of 2022. The great exclusive for PS4 and PS5 already has a release date. Check it out below.
Horizon Forbidden West delayed to 2022
During the Gamescom Opening Night Live today, Sony has unveiled the release date of Horizon Forbidden West, which arrives on PS4 and PS5 on February 18, 2022. The date confirms rumors and reports that the game, originally scheduled for 2021, would be delayed to next year.
In June, the head of PlayStation Studios, Hermen Hulst, had stated that plans were to release the game later this year, but that it was not “guaranteed.”
Horizon Forbidden West is a sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, and puts the player back in the role of the protagonist Aloy, who must journey through the territory of the former Western United States to find some way to save her world from a mysterious plague that is destroying the biomes of the planet.
In this course of the time, pre-orders of Horizon Forbidden West will start on September 2. In the meantime, the original project received a patch that brought 60 FPS support to the game on the PlayStation 5.
The reason for the delay is that developers need more time to deliver what was promised. Check out the explanations given by the developer below in the video. If you want to pre-order the game, you have to be patient a little longer. According to reports, pre-orders will be possible from September 2, 2021.
