On the heels of Horizon Zero Dawn becoming PlayStation 4’s best-selling new IP ever with 2.6 million units sold during its first week, Guerrilla Games has commented on the title’s success and confirmed that it won’t be the last time players step into Aloy’s shoes.
Guerrilla Games managing director, Hermen Hulst, stated, “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. 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.”
Unsurprisingly, the PS4 exclusive has the full backing of Sony, as Shawn Layden, chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios added, “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. 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.”
