It now appears that Horizon Forbidden West will not be a launch title for the highly-anticipated PlayStation 5, missing its 2020 holiday release date.

In a new video published by Sony and Guerrilla Games which offers fans more information and a closer look at the upcoming sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, the game’s director Mathijs de Jonge announced that the studio is aiming for a 2021 release date, meaning that it won’t be ready at launch for the PlayStation 5. Aside from its release date, the director sheds more light onto the storyline, which will pick up where the first installment left off. With a slightly bigger map, players will explore a “mysterious new frontier” that stretches from Utah all the way to the Pacific Ocean, and encounter “dozens” of new machines.

“Ever since the first game, we really wanted to make a world that is so beautiful that you just want to be there, and with the additional power of the PlayStation 5, we can make the world even more detailed, and more vibrant, and more immersive,” says de Jonge. “With the PS5’s SSD, there will be virtually no loading screens, so in an open world came like Horizon Forbidden West, if you open up the map and fast-travel from one end to the other, restarting from a checkpoint will be super fast. When you boot up the game, you’re right there in the action.”

There’s currently precise release date for the game beyond the 2021 period, so stay tuned for more news to come.

Elsewhere in gaming, Riot Games has announced a global Valorant esports tournament.
