The immersive RPG video-game set after the everyday to day life as a survivor in the apocalypse “Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition”, a well-known among principal titles in Playstation 4, is set to come out on PC sometime this 2020.
Former head of Guerrilla Games Herman Hulst, the developer of the said game and the new head of worldwide studios for Sony Interactive Entertainment, confirmed the roaming hearsay in an interview with the official PlayStation Blog: “Yes, I can confirm that Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to PC this [northern] summer.”
“It’s important that we stay open to new ideas of how to introduce more people to PlayStation, and show people maybe what they’ve been missing out on,” he added, indicating that Sony Interactive Entertainment is also emulating the similar strategy to Nintendo’s way of title publicity and garner wider interests of newly released games, in which Nintendo publishes mobile titles based on its cacophony of existing characters and franchises through social networks.
“Releasing one first-party AAA title to PC doesn’t necessarily mean that every game now will come to PC,” Hulst clarified. “Horizon Zero Dawn’ was just a great fit in this particular instance. We don’t have plans for [simultaneous PC and console releases], and we remain 100% committed to dedicated hardware.”
Sony Interactive Entertainment aims to expand the PlayStation ecosystem by careful selection of former console exclusives for distribution elsewhere, all the while encouraging game fans towards the console platform.
With this in mind, it is expected that PlayStation 5 and an Xbox Series X console would be arriving at the same time this holiday in 2020.
