An unfinished build of Horizon Forbidden West was leaked online, a month ahead of the game’s February 18th release date. Images claiming to be from a PS4 version of Horizon Forbidden West started showing up online this week, and according to sources from VGC, the content is real.
The build that leaked is mostly complete, aside from some missing art assets, and it features all of the content currently planned for the game’s final release.
Of course, Sony has been extremely quick to issue takedown notices on images that have been circulating on social media. This is similar to the 2020 situation with The Last of Us Part II, were the game was spoiled for quite a few people. Leaked gameplay of Forbidden West hasn’t appeared on YouTube yet, although it’s unlikely that Sony will allow that to even happen at this point.
Horizon Forbidden West is just several weeks away from launch and having the game leak at this point would be a serious downer for the team over at Guerrilla Games. Hopefully, people didn’t ruin the game for those who were excited to experience what Horizon Forbidden West had to offer organically.
The game is set to launch on February 18th, 2022, and you can check out our preorder guide if you’re looking to grab a copy.
