It’s the second anniversary of Horizon Zero Dawn, an action-RPG from Guerrilla Games. In celebration of that anniversary, Herman Hulst, Managing Director at Guerrilla Games, shared some news in a post on PlayStation Blog. Horizon Zero Dawn has crossed 10 million copies sold!
Here’s what Herman had to say:
It’s hard to believe that two whole years have passed since we released Horizon Zero Dawn. When the game launched on February 28, I was attending GDC and counting down the minutes with a group of fellow Guerrillas and Shuhei Yoshida. Early feedback suggested that we had something special on our hands, but we never suspected that we’d still be receiving daily messages of appreciation from our players in 2019.
And yet, here we are, already well over 10 million copies sold worldwide; the idea that we were able to bring Aloy’s journey to so many players is astounding. We’ve been deeply moved by the enormous amount of fan creations you’ve posted online, as well as the heartfelt letters you’ve sent sharing your favorite moments from Aloy’s journey.
The last known figure for the game’s sales was 7.6 million copies sold exactly one year ago. Knowing that Horizon Zero Dawn has crossed 10 million copies sold a year later is impressive indeed. Between its critical and commercial success, Horizon Zero Dawn has done a great job for Sony and Guerrilla Games.
