Horizon has become one of Sony’s biggest series in recent years, with Horizon Forbidden West for PS5 and PS4. Now, the series is making the jump to VR, with Horizon Call of the Mountain for Sony’s next-generation PSVR 2 headset. But, when can we expect a Horizon Call of the Mountain release date?

Unveiled at CES 2022, Horizon Call of the Mountain is not developed by Guerrilla Games, which shepherded the series’ creation, and new PlayStation Studios team, Firesprite, which has worked on PSVR titles in the past like The Persistence. It is clear Sony is positioning Horizon Call of the Wild to be one of the big games for the PSVR 2 headset during its early life and will undoubtedly be a showpiece title.
