Horizon Zero Dawn Has Exceeded 2.6 Million Sales
And well deserved too.
As of March 16, the PlayStation 4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn has shot right through 2.6 Million sales since its release. It's been out for two weeks and has already hit these numbers.
With high review scores and overall praise from the community, Horizon: Zero Dawn's success shouldn't come as a surprise. Praised for its unique world design and a mixture of action and story, it quickly gathered big time fans of the series. It's also the best-selling new first party launch on the PS4 and developer Guerilla's biggest debut ever.
“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.”
Horizon's protagonist, Aloy has also quickly become a favorite among fans of diverse video game characters and even made it in our Top 5 Female Video Game Protagonists list.
