Today is the 2nd anniversary for Horizon Zero Dawn, and Guerilla Games has posted a celebratory post on PlayStation Blog recounting the game's development process. The developer also took the opportunity to announce that more than 10 million copies of the game have been sold worldwide since launch.
On the same day last year, Horizon Zero Dawn had announced 7.6 million copies sold, meaning about 2.4 million have been sold in the game's second year.
The blog post not only shares some cosplay and fan art for Horizon Zero Dawn, but also goes into some details about some of the more peculiar elements of the game's development process, such how a baby provided sounds for baby Aloy at the onset of the game. Be sure to check out the post for these tidbits, and we hope it's not too long before we see what Guerilla has coming next.
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.
