'Horizon Forbidden West' Release Date Confirmed For Next Holiday

With games like Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon's Souls launching with the PlayStation 5 on November 19th here in the UK, there's no doubt that we'll all have plenty to be getting on with.


Even if those first-party launch games aren't your cup of tea, you'll be able to kick back with next-gen versions of Watch Dogs Legion, Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and Assassin's Creed Valhalla, to say nothing of the enhanced ports of PS4 games available via the PlayStation Plus Collection.

But in spite of everything coming to the PS5 at launch, it's only natural to look ahead to the future of the console. After all, we've still got sequels like God Of War 2, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and Horizon Forbidden West still to come, and that's just the stuff we know about.



While Sony has been fairly vague about the release dates for most of these upcoming exclusives as their efforts are focused on launching the PS5, a new video has given us some idea of when to expect some of these AAA exclusives to drop. Revealed as part of Sony's "New Worlds To Explore" trailer, it looks like Horizon Forbidden West is coming in the second half of next year.

That's obviously a little further away than we were hoping for, but it's good to know that Aloy's next adventure is still on track for 2021... at least for now anyway. We've also learned that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Gran Turismo 7 will also drop in the first half of 2021, so there'll be plenty to play while we wait for Guerilla Games' anticipated sequel.

Unfortunately God Of War 2 was notably absent from the release trailer, which you can check out for yourself above. We can most likely assume from this that SIE Santa Monica Studios' godly sequel is still pretty early in development. I can't imagine we should expect to see Kratos return until 2022 at the earliest, but I've no doubt it'll be worth the wait.


The PlayStation 5 is just nine days away here in the UK, although of course the US and Japan will be getting it on the 12th. Lucky SOBs. While you wait for the next-gen launch, why not kick back with our own PlayStation 5 review? Just let that hype really start to percolate.
