PS4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn now has an official release date, and it’s a bit later than we expected. Instead of coming out in the current year as previously announced, it will be releasing on February 28, 2017. The managing director of developer Guerrilla Games, Herman Helus, announced the release date, saying:
We’ve decided to push the release date for Horizon Zero Dawn to February 28, 2017. 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. 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.
Along with the announcement, a trailer was released, which you can view above. The game is also very likely to be shown at Sony’s E3 conference this year, where it was revealed a year ago.
