Releasing to critical praise, the PlayStation 4 exclusive has won the gaming world over with its beautiful world, engaging characters and thrilling gameplay. Horizon Zero Dawn is now considered the best selling launch title for a Sony-developed studio.

“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.”

In an industry where new content is hard to find, continuously smothered by sequels and unoriginal ideas, Guerilla Games has crafted a detailed and finely tuned game that has taken the crown as a PlayStation’s must have title to own for all new gamers.

“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.”

Congrats to everyone involved!
