Sony Interactive Entertainment announced that Horizon Zero Dawn’s global sales have exceeded 7.6 million copies in a year to make it its best-selling new first-party franchise on PlayStation 4.
Here’s a quote from Shawn Layden, Chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios:
“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.”
And one from Hermen Hulst, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Guerrilla:
“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.”
Horizon Zero Dawn first released on February 28, 2017 in North America.
