We recently got an in-depth look at Horizon Forbidden West during Sony's State of Play presentation last month. Showcasing 14 minutes of in-game action on PS5, it originally targeted a 2021 release, and PlayStation head Hermen Hulst confirmed Zero Dawn's upcoming sequel will likely hit that release date.
Speaking within a new PlayStation Blog post, Hulst offered several new details for PlayStation fans, confirming that God of War Ragnarok has been delayed until 2022. Upon discussing Forbidden West, he advised that the game is “on track to release this holiday season.”

However, he also revealed this plan "isn’t quite certain yet", stating setbacks were caused because of limited access to performance capture and audio recording facilities. Surprisingly, it goes against what developers Guerrilla Games stated last week, which promised an update for us soon regarding a release date.
Elsewhere, Sony's giving us some further details about upcoming plans. Confirming that God of War and Gran Turismo 7 are both coming to PS4 alongside PS5, they also revealed Team Asobi is becoming a standalone studio within PlayStation Studios.
