Guerrilla Game’s next game Horizon Zero Dawn has been delayed. It will not release on this year as previously expected. Sony revealed this fact on the PlayStation blog that the game is scheduled to arrive on February 28, 2017.
Guerilla managing director Hermen Hulst stated:-
“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,” he added
Hulst went on to say he knows the delay may not please everyone, but stressed that it’s in the best interest of the game.
“We’re confident that the advantages of the additional development time afforded by the new date will become clear in the coming months. We really, really appreciate your patience and continued support, and look forward to bringing you the best game we possibly can in February 2017.”
Sony is already advertising Horizon Zero Dawn with a massive billboard at E3 2016, so we’d reckon it may factor into Sony’s E3 2016 briefing next week in some content.
