Earlier this week, rumours began swirling that Horizon Forbidden West could be delayed to 2022. Now, another reliable source has come forward, confirming that Sony has made the decision to push the game back to Q1 2022.
The initial report came from Giant Bomb member, Jeff Grubb, who has reported early information accurately in the past. Bloomberg's Jason Schreier added to the report, revealing new details, such as the more specific Q1 2021 release window.
Schreier clarified that this is a done deal and Sony made the decision “a little while ago”. With that in mind, Horizon Forbidden West will no longer be releasing between October and December 2021 and will instead be releasing between January and March 2022.
Sony is expected to announce this release date change officially by September, possibly during the next State of Play stream. Discuss on our Facebook page, HERE.
KitGuru Says: Thanks to titles like Returnal and Ratchet and Clank, the PS5 will still have had a great first year of first-party titles and the console will continue to sell out. If Horizon Forbidden West needed more time, then delaying is always the best decision.
