In recent years, Sony has encouraged cross-platform releases for former PlayStation-exclusive games, with titles like Marvel’s Spider-Man, Uncharted, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and Horizon Zero Dawn making the leap. With more than a year of exclusivity under its belt, the timing feels right for Forbidden West to follow its predecessor to a brand-new platform.
