In the last hours, alarms went off among Sony fans. The thing is, an insider claimed that Horizon Forbidden West was delayed to 2022. That said, new information suggests that there is really nothing to fear.
The thing is, Gaming Route contacted Sony to inquire about the status of Horizon Forbidden West. The company informed him that the Guerrilla Games project is still in plans to debut before the end of 2021 on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
In case you do not trust Sony’s statements, you should know that there are also reliable sources who are not sure that the project is going to be delayed. One of them is Jason Schreier, a Bloomberg journalist , who assured that this project was already delayed on one occasion.
“Maybe [ Horizon Forbidden West can move to 2022], but Horizon has already been delayed once,” were the journalist’s words.
Another point to keep in mind is that Horizon Forbidden West began development shortly after Horizon Zero Dawn’s debut . This means that it would take a development cycle of approximately 4 years, so a debut by the end of 2021 does not seem impossible. Of course, it must also be taken into consideration that the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) could have impacted the plans.

“We feel great about Returnal, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Horizon Forbidden West. And, you know, there are 2 approaches to this: you can keep the date and launch the game no matter its quality or you can launch it when it’s ready. We always take the second approach ”, said the manager.
