In a recent interview with Wired, PlayStation Studios head Hermen Hulst revealed some interesting news on upcoming PS5 titles. He confirmed that the company had over 25 games in development for the console with almost half being new IPs. However, there were also some bits about Horizon Forbidden West, Guerrilla Games’ upcoming open world epic.

Studio director Angie Smets talked briefly about the PS5’s DualSense and how the haptic feedback contributes to the experience. ”If you want to take a stealth approach to a combat situation and you dive into long grass, you can feel those long grass leaves.” Till now, we’ve only really known about how the controller’s adaptive triggers will make weapons “feel even more unique and satisfying to use.”

Hulst was also happy with the state of the game which he revisited recently after “seven or eight months.” “I spent some time yesterday with Horizon Forbidden West for the first time in seven or eight months. To step away and to come back to it? Talk about giving me a gift.” While this doesn’t tell us much about the quality of the game, it does mean that development is progressing at a steady pace.

Horizon Forbidden West is currently slated to release later this year for PS4 and PS5. Ads for the PS5 indicated that it would arrive in “late 2021” but thus far, no release window has been provided (though Sony feels “pretty good” about a release this year). Stay tuned for more details and updates in the meantime.
