Horizon Forbidden West will release on ­­­­­­­February 18, 2022, confirming previous news of delays into the 2022 year. This was revealed during the Gamescom 2021 Opening Night Live presentation, and they also announced that pre-orders have opened up. The highly anticipated follow-up to Horizon Zero Dawn will be coming out on both PS4 and PS5 only, at least for the foreseeable future.

Those that might be lagging behind and want to catch up before the release of Horizon Forbidden West can dive into Horizon Zero Dawn on a few platforms, including PS4, PS5, and PC. Unfortunately, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S owners won’t be able to play either game. Sony tends not to share its console sellers with their biggest competition in the space.
