Earlier, industry sources speaking to Gadgets 360 confirmed that the studio is indeed powering the tech behind Death Stranding. It is safe to say that Decima, or parts of it at least, are powering Guerrilla’s soon to be released Horizon Zero Dawn, although our sources were unable to confirm or deny that.
Now however, it has been confirmed that the Decima engine is powering Horizon Zero Dawn and PS VR game RIGS Mechanized Combat League in addition to Death Stranding.
Prior to this, industry insider Shinobi602, claimed that the tech powering Death Stranding is provided by Killzone studio Guerrilla Games.

“Guerrilla’s engine putting in work,” he posted on popular gaming forum NeoGAF, refuting his claims to skeptics in later comments.Furthermore,

With Horizon Zero Dawn out early next year, we may not have to wait to long to check out a game that shares the same tech as Death Stranding.

Action-adventure game Horizon Zero Dawn is exclusive to the PS4 and PS4 Pro. It fuses mechanical creatures with dense, lush forests in a post-apocalyptic setting. You can finally play it in 2017 on February 28 in the US, March 1 in India and Europe, and March 3 if you’re in the UK. It was initially planned for sometime in 2016.

You can safely expect it to be priced in line with Sony’s other first-party games such as Gran Turismo Sport. This means it will be Rs. 3,499 via PSN and Rs. 3,999 at retail on disc ($60 in the US).
