Horizon Forbidden West
was announced at the PlayStation 5 event
last week, and Sony has released a small follow-up dive into the Horizon sequel that reveals a few more tidbits. Namely, that Guerrilla Games is aiming for a 2021 release date.Horizon Forbidden West is the sequel to 2017’s Horizon: Zero Dawn, which is set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by machine wildlife. Horizon Forbidden West will follow the protagonist Aloy as she ventures westward.
Forbidden West director Mathijs de Jonge shared the same trailer that was shown at the PS5 event but offered some director commentary.
De Jonge says that thanks to the PS5’s SSD there will be “virtually no loading screens.” So if you open a map to fast travel, you’ll be able to do so almost instantaneously.
And while Guerrilla Games hasn’t announced a release date, Horizon Forbidden West won’t be a launch title for the PS5, which is set to be released this holiday. Instead, Guerrilla is aiming for a 2021 release for the sequel.
