“Last year we made a commitment to deliver free upgrades for our cross-gen launch titles, which included Horizon Forbidden West. While the pandemic’s profound impact pushed Forbidden West out of the launch window we initially envisioned, we will stand by our offer,” Ryan writes.
Ryan also notes that moving forward, other cross-generation titles from the PlayStation Studios brand, including the next God of War and Gran Turismo 7, will not have free upgrades. There will instead be a $10 upgrade path available for PS4 owners.
Horizon Forbidden West is currently scheduled to launch on Feb. 18, 2022. Preorders for Horizon Forbidden West are currently open. There’s multiple different editions of Horizon Forbidden West available, including a Collector’s Edition and the uber-collector’s item, the Regalla Edition.
Sony will be sharing more on the next big PS5 games soon, with an upcoming PlayStation Showcase on Sep. 9, with both third-party titles and big games from Sony Worldwide Studios being present.
