Horizon Forbidden West DLC Could be Launching Sooner than you Think

Horizon Forbidden West was released in February 2022 as a PlayStation exclusive game. It received positive reviews, and has also been nominated for multiple awards at The Game Awards which will be held on December 18.

Twitter user @insider_wtf shared a map image of San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. According to Insider Gaming, this is a hint towards the Horizon Forbidden West Burning Shores DLC which takes place in these places.


Insider Gaming also claims that Burning Shores will be released in April 2023, i.e., just over a year after the game’s initial launch. Although the user is a known leaker, fans of Horizon Forbidden West should wait for Sony to officially announce any DLC news. 

Rumors about a DLC for Horizon Forbidden West being in development have been doing the rounds of the Internet for quite a while now. 

A recent tweet by Lance Reddick, who plays Sylens in the Horizon series, read “Hard at work in a session for Horizon Forbidden West.” This suggests that the DLC might be coming sooner than you think.

The Burning Shores DLC will tie up the stories of Horizon Forbidden West and its upcoming sequel. It might be possible that developer Guerilla Games may part ways with the franchise after the DLC launches. 

Horizon Call of the Mountain is being launched for PSVR2, and a remaster of Horizon Zero Dawn is said to be in development. Reportedly, a co-op Horizon game is also being made by Sony. Fans of the Horizon franchise will have plenty of titles to look forward to.
