Horizon Forbidden West takes protagonist Aloy to the western coast of post-apocalyptic America, where she will face new threats and make new allies. The Guerrilla-developed sequel is one of the last Sony exclusives announced that will be on both PS5 and PS4.

Forbidden West is apparently scheduled to release in 2021, but Sony has yet to announce a specific release date.
