Horizon Zero Dawn was originally expected to ship sometime late this year. After a statement over the PlayStation Blog by managing direct at Guerilla Games Herman Hulst, though, it looks like the date’s being pushed back.
“It wasn’t an easy choice to make; we know many of you have been anxious to play the game since we first announced it. However, we also want to ensure that Horizon Zero Dawn lives up to the visuals and gameplay quality that our games are known for. The new date affords us the extra time required to deliver fully on our ambitious vision for Horizon Zero Dawn,” Hulst explained over on the PlayStation Blog.
“We realize that this decision may not please everyone. At the same time, we’re confident that the advantages of the additional development time afforded by the new date will become clear in the coming months, as we start to share more cool details and videos from Horizon Zero Dawn. We really, really appreciate your patience and continued support, and look forward to bringing you the best game we possibly can in February 2017.”
Horizon Zero Dawn will now be released on February 28th, 2017 as a PS4 exclusive.
