It has­n’t been that long since the devel­op­er Guer­ril­la Games showed off 14 min­utes of game­play footage from Hori­zon For­bid­den West, and now some dis­ap­point­ing news has sur­faced about the title.

PlaySta­tion Stu­dios boss Her­man Hulst stat­ed in an inter­view on the PlaySta­tion Blog that For­bid­den West should release this hol­i­day, but that’s not a guar­an­tee. “For Hori­zon, we think we are on track to release this hol­i­day sea­son. But that isn’t quite cer­tain yet, and we’re work­ing as hard as we can to con­firm that to you as soon as we can,” Hulst said.

Horizon Forbidden West Not Guaranteed To Release Within Its 2021 Timeframe

Hulst quote was all he had to say about the mat­ter, with Guer­ril­la games not com­ment­ing on the sit­u­a­tion at all. Any num­ber of rea­son could be cause for a delay, as the world is just now start­ing to come out COVID-19 pandemic.

While For­bid­den West did look good dur­ing the its State of Play show­case, this does­n’t mean the game is ready to be shipped. When­ev­er it is ready, it will be avail­able on PlaySta­tion 4 and PlaySta­tion 5.

Anoth­er high-pro­file PlaySta­tion title, the God of War sequel, has seen an unfor­tu­nate fate. Sony has delayed the San­ta Mon­i­ca Stu­dio devel­oped game to 2022.
