Horizon Forbidden West was announced to critical acclaim, with many praising the fact that we would be getting a sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn on the PlayStation 5.
Considering how Horizon Zero Dawn was one of the best-looking games on the PS4, making a sequel exclusive to the new console sounds like a smart idea, especially since Zero Dawn launched a wee bit late.
Is Horizon Forbidden West A PS5 Exclusive?
Of course, things aren’t always as they seem as it was later announced that Horizon Forbidden West would not be a PS5 exclusive as the long-awaited sequel will also be coming to the PS4.
This was a bit confusing for some gamers and even angered those that wanted Horizon Forbidden West to be a PS5 exclusive since they felt that the console needed good games to sell itself.
Unfortunately, getting your hands on a PS5 has proven to be one of the most difficult things you can do with Sony even stating that they don’t expect proper mass production of the system until next year.
Because of this, most fans are happy that Horizon Forbidden West will be coming to the PS4 along with PS5, with a free upgrade to the next-gen console likely coming, given that Sony has done the same for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Sackboy: A Big Adventure.
We’re sure that more PS5 exclusives are coming and we did get big titles like Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and Returnal making a big impact on the console.
It’s a small shame that Horizon Forbidden West isn’t a PS5 exclusive but at least more people will get to play it on PS4.
