It's seemingly all hands on deck over at Guerrilla Games as the Dutch studio attempts to wrap up development on Horizon Forbidden West from home. The team has confirmed in a new blog post that patches and updates for the PC version of Horizon Zero Dawn will be less frequent henceforth to ensure the big-budget sequel is ready for its eventual launch on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. That's currently scheduled to take place at some point this year.
The post reads: "As our team continues development on our upcoming title Horizon Forbidden West, we are shifting to less frequent updates for Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition for PC after this patch. Please note that we will continue to monitor our community spaces as always!" This follows in the aftermath of numerous PC patches that brought the port up to snuff. With it now in a fit state, Guerrilla Games' attention turns to Horizon Forbidden West. Although, it probably always was the priority — this simply means even more employees can now commit their time to development and polishing. We're not entirely convinced the game will hit its 2021 release window, but it looks like the developer is trying its hardest to ensure it happens.
