Hori­zon For­bid­den West has report­ed­ly been delayed until 2022. How­ev­er, Sony has not made any offi­cial announce­ments regard­ing this report, and no spe­cif­ic rea­son has yet to be given.

Bloomberg reports the sup­posed delay would push the game to the first quar­ter of 2022, past big hol­i­day rush. This is now the sec­ond report in a short span about a delay, the first being from reporter Jeff Grubb on the Giant Bomb show Grubb­Snax.

For­bid­den West seems des­tined to slip past its 2021 release date, espe­cial­ly after PlaySta­tion Stu­dios head Her­man Hulst float­ed the pos­si­bil­i­ty of a delay. He said at the time that we think we are on track to release this hol­i­day sea­son” but not­ed “that isn’t quite cer­tain yet.”

If this is con­firmed to be true, this would be just anoth­er game in an ever-grow­ing list of delays of this year. Most devel­op­ers and pub­lish­ers are cit­ing com­pli­ca­tions caused by the pan­dem­ic, par­tic­u­lar­ly to stu­dio effi­cien­cy as they adjust­ed to work­ing from home.

Hori­zon For­bid­den West is still expect­ed to arrive to PS4 and PS5, with Guer­ril­la Games say­ing cross-gen won’t be “lim­it­ing in any­way” to the game.
