Horizon Forbidden West is now looking at a launch in the latter part of 2021. Previously, Sony had set expectations only for sometime in the next year.
The release window comes as a detail in a trailer Sony Interactive Entertainment put out Monday, outlining the major video game launches that will support the PlayStation 5. Horizon Forbidden West is given a fine-print “anticipated second half 2021” designation in the trailer, where others are mentioned as “anticipated first half 2021.”
The first game sold very well — more than 10 million copies worldwide, making it one of the PS4’s best-performing exclusive titles. Ashly Burch and Lance Reddick will return as Aloy and Sylens, as the story moves from the interior West of 31st-century America to the Pacific Coast.
