As the trailer shows off the highly anticipated exclusive line-up of games, you may notice some very small fine print located at the bottom of the epic trailer which reveals the release windows.

The trailer also features a couple of PlayStation 5 launch titles including Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, as well as the Demon’s Souls remake from Bluepoint Games.

In the teeny, tiny small print it reveals that Horizon Forbidden West, sequel to the fantastic Horizon Zero Dawn from Guerrilla Games, is expected to release during the “second half [of] 2021”. Check out the trailer below.

I assume that the Horizon Forbidden West release window is for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions, and while it’s not specific at this stage, at least we know we’ve got a good few months left to wait!

Meanwhile both Gran Turismo 7 and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart are expected to release for PlayStation 5 sometime during the “first half [of] 2021”.

It is also worth keeping in mind that these are only initial estimates from Sony and it is very likely that some of the titles featured in the trailer might get delayed.
