Horizon Zero Dawn review embargo ended a few days ago and the end result was better than PlayStation fans expected i.e. almost all media outlets awarded Horizon Zero Dawn a strong review score. Today, research firm SuperData shared their report on the sales prediction of Horizon Zero Dawn. According to the SuperData CEO Joost Van Dreunen (the man behind the sales report), Horizon Zero Dawn could sell 6 million units worldwide by the end of 2017.
The report further added that the lifetime sales could reach the 8 million mark figure, which will put the game with the likes of most recent releases like Uncharted 4 and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Strong review scores from critics are cited as the big reason behind by Joost van Dreunen gave for this boost in the sales of Horizon Zero Dawn.
Dreunen also added in the report that the Horizon Zero Dawn strong review will encourage newcomers towards PlayStation 4. In January 2017, Sony announced that they have sold 53.4 million PS4 units worldwide, and as per the data from SuperData (estimate), Microsoft has sold 26 million Xbox One units. On this note, Dreunen added in the report:
“The release of the game (Horizon Zero Dawn) as a platform exclusive suggests that this gap will only widen as consumers flock to play Horizon Zero Dawn.
Horizon Zero Dawn is scheduled to launch worldwide on February 28. A lot of PlayStation 4 owners got their copy of the game early, as a result of it, their early impressions are out on sidequests, graphics on PlayStation 4 Pro, and many other things.
