At last year’s PlayStation events, Sony made it look like the PlayStation 5 would have an incredible first year. Sadly, different delays have been breaking this illusion. Luckily, it seems that all is not lost and that the premiere of Horizon Forbidden West will be this year.
In his interview with GQ, Jim Ryan, head of PlayStation, spoke about his plans for 2021. There he mentioned that Horizon Forbidden West, Aloy’s new adventure, will arrive this year.
“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, ”Ryan mentioned when talking about his plans for 2021.
Considering that Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart will arrive in June, everything points to which Horizon Forbidden West will arrive in the second half of the year. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if it was PlayStation’s major end-of-year launch.
DON’T EXPECT GOD OF WAR TO ARRIVE IN 2021
Now you’re probably thinking, what about the God of War sequel? After all, at one of last year’s PlayStation events it was announced as a 2021 title.
However, we think it’s important that you don’t get any illusions that Kratos and Atreus’ next adventure will debut this year. The thing is, Jim Ryan never mentioned it in the interview along with other 2021 releases.
Another point to take into account is that Jason Schreier, a renowned video game journalist, made a comment making it clear that it is innocent to think that the new God of War will arrive this year on PlayStation 5.
I've got a nice shiny bridge to sell anyone who thinks God of War is coming out this year
