Sony confirms Horizon Zero Dawn for PC
But PlayStation says it remains “100% committed to dedicated hardware”
Sony has confirmed plans to release Horizon Zero Dawn for PC this summer.
Developed by Guerrilla Games and originally released for PS4 in February 2017, the open-world post-apocalyptic title has sold over 10 million copies.
Hermen Hulst, formerly the managing director of Guerrilla and now head of PlayStation Worldwide Studios, confirmed previously rumoured plans for a PC version of the game in an interview with the PlayStation Blog.
“Yes, I can confirm that Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to PC this summer…. There will be more information coming from Guerrilla, from the new studio directors [Michiel van der Leeuw, JB van Beek, and Angie Smets] pretty soon,” he said.
Asked to comment on PlayStation’s future plans in the PC space, Hulst said: “I think 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.
“And to maybe put a few minds at ease, releasing one first-party AAA title to PC doesn’t necessarily mean that every game now will come to PC. In my mind, Horizon Zero Dawn was just a great fit in this particular instance.
“We don’t have plans for day and date [PC releases], and we remain 100% committed to dedicated hardware.”
Mark Healey, a co-founder of Sony owned studio Media Molecule, recently told VGC that a PC version of Dreams isn’t currently in development, but that it would be “great” to release one in the future.
