Guerrilla Games has debunked the rumor about the release year of their upcoming RPG Horizon Zero Dawn. This rumor was originally started by a journalist on RocketBeansTV in stream on Twitch. During the stream, the journalist mentioned a 2017 release year for Horizon Zero Dawn, as spotted by NeoGAF user Kenzodielocke.
Horizon Zero Dawn is an upcoming action RPG from Guerrilla Games, and it was recently revealed at E3 2015. The development of the game started with the release of Killzone 3 on the PS3 so it has been in development for a while. During their E3 reveal, Guerrilla Games listed a 2016 release year for Horizon Zero Dawn.
Once the news of a 2017 release began to spread, Guerrilla Games were quick to debunk this rumor and reaffirmed their 2016 release year again.
Guerrilla Games’ producer Mark Norris posted a comment on the NeoGAF thread with the rumor and confirmed that they are targeting 2016.
Mark Norris from Guerrilla here. I just wanted to let you all know (and hopefully a mod can put it in the OP) that we are targeting a 2016 release date.
The official Guerrilla Games account also echoed the same.
Yes we are. https://t.co/jyGyOFPGNP
