We may not have to wait long for a proper release date for Horizon Forbidden West, after all.
This lead fans to speculate that Forbidden West may not be as further along in development as they believed. Considering we’re nearly halfway done with 2021, a late-2021 release date would have made sense, but since we got nothing, it could indicate that Forbidden West may not be out this year at all.
While developer Guerrilla Games didn’t comment on this speculation, the developer understands that fans expected a release date in last week’s showcase. In a Tweet following the stream, Guerrilla said that development is on track, and that an update on the game’s release date is coming “very soon”.
Thanks for watching our #HorizonForbiddenWest gameplay reveal! We don’t have an exact release date just yet, but development is on track and we will have an update for you very soon – thank you as always for your ongoing support!

This obviously doesn’t tell us much, but at least the studio is aware that there was a desire to see the release date, considering how long in development the game must have been. Horizon Forbidden West is in development for PS4 and PS5.
