Sony is “feeling fairly good” about the opportunity of Horizon Forbidden West launching this 12 months alongside first-party exclusives Returnal and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. The quote comes as a part of a brand new, bumper interview with boss Jim Ryan, the place the principle man is requested in regards to the launch roadmap for 2021 amongst many different issues. He fails to say God of War Ragnarok in his response, nonetheless.
Ryan says: “Yeah, we’re feeling fairly good about Returnal, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Aside and Horizon Forbidden West. And, you realize, there are two approaches to this: you may both maintain the date and put out the sport no matter high quality or you may ship it when it’s proper. We now have all the time taken the latter strategy. There have been some pretty high-profile cases of publishers attempting the previous strategy.” Fairly clearly referencing the Cyberpunk 2077 debacle on the finish, Jim Ryan reiterates Sony’s dedication to solely placing out titles after they’re prepared for the mass market.
And on the subject of God of Struggle Ragnarok, PlayStation followers have been cautious that the follow-up to the 2018 basic could not truly make it this 12 months. Perhaps the truth that Ryan did not convey up the sequel in his response is studying into issues just a little bit an excessive amount of, however we’ll have to attend and see.
Let’s hope Horizon Forbidden West at the very least does make it out in 2021 and does not undergo the identical destiny as Gran Turismo 7 — that has simply been delayed to 2022. Will we actually be enjoying Aloy’s subsequent journey this 12 months? Share your ideas within the feedback under.
