Horizon Zero Dawn (HZD) has no doubt solidified its place as one of the top games of 2017! If the reviews aren’t proof enough, the sales figures definitely speak volumes!
Sony Interactive Entertainment Hong Kong Limited Singapore Branch (SIES) broke the news that HZD exceeded 2.6 million units sold in terms of physical and digital copies GLOBALLY and this was just within the first two weeks of its launch! This makes HZD the best-selling new first party IP launch on the PS4 system to date as well as Guerrilla’s biggest debut ever.
“We’re thrilled that Horizon Zero Dawn has been embraced by critics and players alike. Developing the game was a labor of love, so it’s extremely satisfying to see that it elicits the same passion and enthusiasm from the gaming public that we felt during its development. This is only the beginning of Aloy’s story and our exploration of the world of Horizon Zero Dawn, with the team already hard at work on an expansion to the story.” – Guerrilla Managing Director Hermen Hulst.
“We knew Horizon Zero Dawn was going to be something special, so to see the incredible critical reaction to a brand new game world translate into this level of sales is really gratifying. Guerrilla has created a game that is nothing short of exceptional, and the reaction we have seen from fans – from hours and hours of gameplay streaming to endless photo sharing – shows just how impactful it has been” – Shawn Layden, Chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios.
HZD is definitely an early yet solid pick for Game of the Year in our eyes! If you want to see more details as to why, you can check out our review here or you can also watch our quick bit of playthrough HERE:
