Post-post-apocalyptic action-RPG Horizon: Zero Dawn is likely to be further delayed to a Q1 2017 launch window. The PS4 exclusive from Guerrilla Games was well-received at E3 last year, and was nominated for Best of Show, Best Original Game, Best Console Game, and Best Action/Advenure game from several publications. Guerrilla started work on Horizon: Zero Dawn following Killzone 3’s release.

Fallout: New Vegas’ lead writer was taken onboard as the story lead to lend the game narrative flair. While Horizon: Zero Dawn was initially slated for release this year, well-known industry insider Shinobi602 claimed that the game’s release date will be pushed to early 2017.

Interestingly, Guerrilla’s co-founder Arjan Brussee added credibility to that rumor by tweeting that he was “not surprised” about the game’s rumoured delay. While a further delay may upset people looking forward to play the game this year, it’s arguable that an extended development period is a good thing: Assassin’s Creed: Unity was a half-baked mess at launch, courtesy of Ubisoft’s annual update strategy. On the other hand, GTA V took a full two years to arrive on PC, but when it did, Rockstar’s opus was lauded as one of the finest examples of how handle a multiplat release on PC.
