Horizon Forbidden West will be released on PS4 and PS5 on February 18, 2022, as revealed by Guerrilla Games during the Gamescom 2021 Opening Night Live. Along with the announcement of the release date, the studio also confirmed the immediate availability of the patch for the 60fps of Horizon Zero Dawn, available right now exclusively on PlayStation 5.
The postponement of Horizon Forbidden West to 2022 was anticipated by Bloomberg’s Jeff Grubb and Jason Schreier between July and August, and the rumors proved correct. During the Gamescom 2021 presentation, Game Director Mathijs De Jonge said the Covid-19 pandemic caused the production delays.
While waiting for the release of Horizon Forbidden West, however, you can entertain yourself with the second run of Horizon Zero Dawn, as the highly requested 60 fps patch is available on PS5 right now.
