Accord­ing to the most recent games trail­er for Sony, Hori­zon For­bid­den West is still set to release on PS4 and PS5 lat­er this year. The trail­er sug­gests the sequel will launch in the sec­ond half of 2021, while also show­ing the clos­est up-to-date infor­ma­tion for Ratch­et and Clank: Rift Apart and Gran Tur­is­mo 7. 

The trail­er (cap­tured by IGN) fea­tures the recent­ly revealed June release date for Insom­ni­ac’s lat­est Ratch­et and Clank adven­ture. There was also an omis­sion of a 2021 release win­dow for Gran Tur­is­mo 7, which sug­gests the “antic­i­pat­ed sec­ond half 2021” cap­tion for Hori­zon For­bid­den West is cor­rect. You can see the trail­er below:

A sec­ond ad on Insta­gram (via VCG) con­firms this, stat­ing that For­bid­den West might come in the sec­ond half of 2021. State­ments made by PlaySta­tion’s Jim Ryan seem to echo this, with him stat­ing he felt con­fi­dent about the release of Retur­nal, Ratch­et and Clank: Rift Apart, and Hori­zon For­bid­den West in an inter­view with GQ last week.

In that inter­view, Ryan also men­tioned Sony giv­ing devel­op­ers the space to delay their games if it was nec­es­sary. This was the case for Gran Tur­is­mo 7, which is no longer releas­ing in 2021.
