Hermen Hulst, chief of the PlayStation Studios of which Guerrilla Games is a part, said in an interview that the developers thought they were “on track” to be able to debut Horizon Forbidden West over the holiday season later this year, although they weren’t very sure about this timing. . Unfortunately, the effects of the pandemic have made it difficult for developers to access equipment and actors for the creation of motion capture.
Furthermore, always according to the words of Hulst, it must be considered that Sony’s PlayStation Studios are currently involved in the creation of over 25 games. In fact, other titles like Gran Turismo 7 and the upcoming God of War have also been postponed.
We just have to wait patiently for the beginning of next year without forgetting that in a few days the pre-orders of the game will still be open.
