Horizon: Zero Dawn Sells Over 2.6 Million Copies, Story Expansion Confirmed

Guer­ril­la Games and Sony Inter­ac­tive Enter­tain­ment have announced that Hori­zon: Zero Dawn has sold over 2.6 mil­lion copies in the first two weeks of release.

These num­bers are world­wide sales and include both dig­i­tal and phys­i­cal copies. This makes Hori­zon: Zero Dawn the best sell­ing new IP from a Sony first par­ty stu­dio. In com­par­i­son the well estab­lished Unchart­ed 4: A Thief’s End sold 2.7 mil­lion copies with­in the first week of launch. 

Here is what Guer­ril­la Games’ Man­ag­ing Direc­tor Her­men Hulst had to say about the news.

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.”

No fur­ther infor­ma­tion has been giv­en on the sto­ry expan­sion. The game does not have a Sea­son Pass so it seems unlike­ly there will be more DLC beyond the one being worked on currently.

I am a Platinum lover and an ex- Cod-aholic. I've been playing games since I was 5 years old and I refuse to quit, despite my mother's attempts to get me to. God of War and its successors are my all time favorite games.
