Earlier this year there were murmurs that the upcoming futuristic stone-age adventure game, Horizon Zero Dawn was delayed until 2017. Now, it seems that those murmurs were true, as Sony and Guerilla Games have announced that the game will indeed launch in 2017.
On the PlayStation Blog yesterday evening, Guerilla Games Managing Director, Hermen Hulst, unveiled a brand new trailer for the game, as well as revealing the new revised release date for the game.
“As you can see in the trailer, [below] we’ve decided to push the release date for Horizon Zero Dawn to 1st March 2017 (3rd March in the UK). 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.”
Horizon Zero Dawn was announced at E3 2015 and has been quietly in development ever since. The news of the delay is slightly disappointing, but with the way the game is looking so far, I have to say, I’m still pretty excited.
Plus, the March release window allows the game to shine without having to battle it out with some of this year’s big contenders.
