News from the game PS5: Horizon and Death Stranding’s engine for future graphic slappers?
You may know it by name, you’ve probably already seen it in action: Decima Engine is the engine belonging to Guerrilla Games and used specifically for Horizon Forbidden West. Imagine this one having to point the tip of his nose a lot more in the future.

Decima Engine comes to the rescue
Initiated at the very beginning of the PlayStation 4 generation with the then technically breathtaking Killzone Shadow Fall,e Decima Engine is an engine developed and owned by Guerrilla Games, Sony’s flagship Dutch studio. It was subsequently taken over for other PS4 exclusives like Horizon Zero Dawn, of course, but also games from other studios like Until Dawn or Death Stranding (which finally landed on Xbox, some will say).
A new version has been developed hard work for Horizon Forbidden West which happened in early 2022…. and this should be used for many games in the futureand not just those of Guerrilla Games.
Lots of PS5 off questionable
The information comes from PlayStation Studios president Hermen Hulst (who was precisely the thought leader of Guerrilla Games before this), who spoke via Kotaku about the mutual aid between the companies in the group.
Of course, there is technology sharing. For example, there are several studios that use Guerrilla Games’ Decima Engine. We also value improving our technology and share that mentality with the studios.
In other words, we should see multiple and future PlayStation exclusives using the Decima Engineimproved with each collaboration for a result that we hope will suit the new generation.
We still don’t know which studios are affected, but we remind you that a potential Death Stranding 2 is starting to appear more and more often in the news; Similarly, document would leak a bunch of upcoming Sony exclusives, some of which could then use 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’s back at Guerrilla to show us the amazing things he’s done with Death Stranding. I am so impressed!
