Once a game goes gold, the overall development process is finished and the team focuses on further polishing the game until launch.

Regarding how long it takes to completely finish Horizon 2, the review codes could already be out, and the reviewers might receive one or two updates during the playthrough until the official launch.

While PlayStation 5 is supposed to be the home platform of Horizon 2 Forbidden West, the game will be available on PS4 as well. Earlier today, Sony shared a new look at the gameplay of Forbidden West on PS4 Pro, which still looks breathtaking.

Horizon 2 Forbidden West will be available on February 18 for PS4 and PS5. Although there is no plan at the moment to launch the game on PC, we could expect it to be available on Steam a few years later.
