Horizon Zero Dawn is one of the best games of 2017 and if you’ve got a great game, the sales will surely follow. Just how good was Horizon Zero Dawn? Sony Interactive Entertainment announced global sales have exceeded a WHOPPING 7.6 million copies just one year since it launched, making it the most successful new first-party franchise launch on PS4!
For a console exclusive game, that is a LOT of copies and even Shawn Layden, Chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios, acknowledges the feat. “We are incredibly grateful that Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds have been received so positively by so many gamers and it is a testament to the fantastic work of the entire team at Guerrilla. The combination of beautiful story-telling and great characters, with excellent gameplay mechanics, has resonated well with fans and led to this exceptional sales milestone,”.
“We had huge ambition for Horizon Zero Dawn and as we approached the launch we knew
people were excited, but to see sales of this volume is truly mind blowing. Since launch,
millions of players have joined Aloy on a quest to discover the secrets of the old ones. We
hope they enjoy playing Horizon Zero Dawn as much as we enjoyed making it,” said Hermen Hulst, Managing Director and Co-Founder, Guerrilla.
