Horizon Forbidden West has sold 8.4 million copies, taking lifetime franchise sales to 32.7 million units.
Studio director Jan-Bart van Beek described the figures as copies “sold through” to consumers as of April 16, 2023, as opposed to units shipped to retailers.
“Millions more around the world have discovered Horizon thanks to PlayStation’s subscription services and initiatives, including PlayStation Plus, and Play at Home,” said van Beek. “All told, it’s a milestone we never imagined possible twenty years ago when we first started making games.”
He added: “Last of all, I’d like to share that we are so excited that Aloy’s adventures will continue. Her latest mission takes her to the ruins of Los Angeles in Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores, and we can’t wait for you to find out where she’ll go next.”
Guerrilla revealed in December that it was planning to “expand the world of Horizon” with an online co-op project “featuring a new cast of characters and a unique stylized look”.
At the same time, it said it would continue to make “epic solo adventures” starring series protagonist Aloy.
Prior to Horizon Forbidden West’s announcement, VGC exclusively reported that Sony was planning a trilogy of Horizon games.
Sony is also working with Netflix on a TV adaptation of Horizon.
