Horizon Zero Dawn Sells Over 2.6 Million Copies

Guerrilla Games’ latest title did pretty well especially for a new IP because Horizon Zero Dawn reached over 2.6 million copies sold through. SIE announced this morning that Horizon has sold over 2.6 million units in its first two weeks making it the best selling first party new-IP on the PlayStation 4. It also happens to be Guerrilla’s biggest debut in the studio’s history.

In a press release Shawn Layden, Chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios said:

“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. 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.”

Guerrilla Managing Director Hermen Hulst added:

“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.”

The sales data collected includes both physical and digital copies from SIEA, SIEJA and SIEE. IF you haven’t checked out Horizon Zero Dawn you can find Glenn’s written review here or listen to his review from Episode 514.
