Report: Horizon Zero Dawn To Sell 6 Million Units By The End Of 2017
The launch of Horizon Zero Dawn is getting closer and excitement among the gamers is increasing with every passing day. While Horizon Zero Dawn is a new IP but that does not mean that it will not sell like hotcakes, as a new report suggests that the game might sell 6 million units by the end of 2017.
According to the report from Superdata, Horizon Zero Dawn will shift 6 million units by the end of this year. The report further suggests that the lifetime sales for the game could reach to 8 million units which will put it with likes of Uncharted 4 and Metal Gear Solid V.
The report further notes that the game has received strong reviews from the critics which is an element that will help boost the sales. According to the report, the game releases at a “key moment” for Sony Interactive Entertainment, because the hardware sales have slowed down which will lead to a greater demand for software.
Sony has made it clear that they want to make Horizon Zero Dawn’s protagonist, Aloy, to be the next PlayStation icon. Given the great critical reception, it seems that we might be looking at another fan favorite character. However, Guerrilla Games have noted that the sequel might feature a different protagonist.
I think Aloy will always be a part of Horizon: Zero Dawn, but as you might have seen, there is a big number of characters and tribes in the game, and we have a rich history,” Gillespie told us.
We spent years developing these tribes, so there is a possibility for other characters in the future, but Aloy will always remain in Horizon: Zero Dawn.
Horizon Zero Dawn is an open-world action adventure game developed by Guerrilla Games and is scheduled to launch on February 28, 2017, exclusively for PlayStation 4.
