Horizon: Zero Dawn Exceeds 2.6 Million in Global Sales
That's a lot of copies.
Horizon: Zero Dawn has been a huge success for Sony, with the company confirming the game has surpassed 2.6 million copies worldwide in a two week period.
The PlayStation 4 exclusive title developed by Guerrilla Games has received widespread critical acclaim, cementing its place as the best-selling first party new IPs launch on PlayStation 4, and Guerrilla Games more successful debut to date.
Praised for its unique world design, wide array of strategic action and fascinating story line, it instantly became one of the most celebrated games of the current generation.
“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.”
Sony Interactive Entertainment have stated they are committed to “the continuous expansion of the world of PS4 through the introduction of attractive software titles and network services.”
Although that doesn’t mean that a sequel for Horizon: Zero Dawn is confirmed, the stellar sales would be hard to ignore.
