Guerrilla Games showed off a meaty chunk of new gameplay footage for Horizon Forbidden West in the upcoming open world action RPG’s gameplay debut. With impressive tech and new gameplay features shown off, there was a lot in the State of Play episode for those looking forward to the game to dive into. But, of course, the one thing that was missing was a launch date. Seeing as the game is scheduled for a 2021 release, many were expecting that an exact release date would be announced.
Minutes after the show ended, developer Guerrilla Games took to Twitter. Acknowledging the lack of information on a release date, the development assured that Horizon Forbidden West’s development “is on track”, before adding that they will “have an update for you very soon.”
If the game is going to stick to its late 2021 launch window, a release date announcement would have to come within the next few months. PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan has previously said that Sony is feeling confident about the game hitting its target launch window, so there is that.
Whenever it launches, Horizon Forbidden West will be available for PS5 and PS4.
Thanks for watching our #HorizonForbiddenWest gameplay reveal! We don't have an exact release date just yet, but development is on track and we will have an update for you very soon – thank you as always for your ongoing support!
