Ah, yes, my comment in that section was in regard to the PS5 update/release of Zero Dawn NOT Forbidden west. I.e. by removing the frame-time limit, solving animation and physics timing issues on this PC version means a 60 or 120fps version could be released on PS5 to drum on interest and sales ahead of Forbidden West next year. This will be a brand new game and engine with many significant enhancements over this version as we have already seen in the trailer and will likely not have a 30fps only mode also.
I don't see any big difference between HZD and HFW. In fact, they share a lot of assets (why shouldn't they). It is also not verified if HFW is going to be a brand new Decima engine. The one they have now works fine. The only significant enhancements we will see will be basically the enhancements they made for the PC version over the PS4 version. And perhaps 1 RT feature. In all, I think the decima engine is more portable than the ND engine. It's pretty much already ready for multiplatform capabilities.
