Game news PS5: the Horizon and Death Stranding engine for future graphic slaps?
Perhaps you know it by name, you have probably already seen it in action: the Decima Engine is the engine belonging to Guerrilla Games and used in particular for Horizon Forbidden West. Imagine this should point the tip of the nose much more often in the future.

The Tenth Engine to the rescue
Launched at the start of the PlayStation 4 generation with the technically breathtaking Killzone Shadow Fall at the time, thee Decima Engine is an engine developed and owned by Guerrilla Games, Sony’s flagship Dutch studio. Subsequently, it was reprized for other PS4 exclusives such as Horizon Zero Dawn of course, but also for games from other studios such as Until Dawn or Death Stranding (which have finally landed on Xbox, at the height of some will say).
A new version has been developed hard work for Horizon Forbidden West in early 2022 … and this should be used for many games in the futureand not just those of Guerrilla Games.
Many PS5 excluded in question
The information comes to us from PlayStation Studios president Hermen Hulst (who was previously the thinking boss of Guerrilla Games), who spoke through Kotaku about the mutual help between the companies of the group.
There is obviously a sharing of technology. For example, there are several studios using Guerrilla Games’ Decima Engine. We also appreciate the improvement of our technology and share this mindset with the studios.
In other words, we should see more and future PlayStation exclusives using the Tenth Engineimproved in every collaboration for a result that we hope will be up to the next generation.
We do not yet know which studies are interested but we remind you that a potential Death Stranding 2 is starting to peep more and more often in the news; likewise, a document would have leaked a bunch of upcoming Sony exclusives, some of which could then use the Guerrilla Games engine. Wait and see, as they say.
Three years ago we gave Hideo Kojima a copy of our Decima engine in this box. Today he went back to Guerrilla to show us the amazing things he did with Death Stranding. I am so impressed!
