Horizon Zero Dawn managed that rarest of things - it not only met pre-launch hype but also exceeded it. Our reviewer described it as "perfect in every way" and "the most beautiful game I have ever seen." Last night, Sony announced that Horizon Zero Dawn sold over 2.6 million copies in two weeks, and is now the best-selling new first party IP launch on the PlayStation 4.
"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," said Shawn Layden, Chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios. "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."
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," said Guerrilla Managing Director Hermen Hulst. "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."
According to Gamespot, Guerilla Games is already working on a story expansion for Horizon Zero Dawn. No further details have been revealed.
