Horizon Zero Dawn Sells 2.6 Million Copies In Two Weeks, Story Expansion Coming
The new PS4 exclusive is off to a hot start.

Horizon Zero Dawn, Sony's newest big-time PlayStation 4 exclusive, sold 2.6 million units worldwide during its first two weeks, Sony announced today. This figure includes physical copies sold to consumers and digital units sold through the PlayStation Store.

It's the best-selling new IP from Sony for PS4 ever and marks developer Guerrilla Games' "biggest debut" in its history, Sony said. Guerrilla created the Killzone series, so Horizon Zero Dawn debuted bigger than any game in that shooter series, it seems.

"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," Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios boss Shawn Layden said in a statement. "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's managing director, Hermen Hulst, said in his own statement: "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."

Hulst also confirmed that Guerrilla is already working on a story expansion for Horizon Zero Dawn, though no other details about this were disclosed.

Horizon Zero Dawn launched on February 28 in the US before coming to Europe on March 1. The game received resounding praise, including a 9/10 from GameSpot and high marks from other outlets.

The game was outsold by For Honor on the PlayStation Store in February, but Ubisoft's sword-fighting game was released two weeks earlier.
