Sony has shared a new sales update for their open world RPG from Guerrilla Games: Horizon Zero Dawn. The game launched as a new IP last year in March and has managed to smash sales record for Sony by becoming the fastest selling new franchise for them in a generation. It has surpassed the likes of Uncharted and The Last of Us which is an impressive achievement for the studio, Guerrilla Games.
“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,” said Shawn Layden, Chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios.
“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,” said Hermen Hulst, Managing Director and Co-Founder, Guerrilla.
Horizon Zero Dawn also received a complete edition which was bundled with the Frozen Wilds DLC launching at the end of last year. The game is the first open world action RPG from Guerrilla Games who have previously worked on the Killzone series.
