Will fall into same category as Uncharted 4 and MGS5.
Guerrilla Games’ Horizon: Zero Dawn could be in for quite the lifetime sales haul. Research and analytics firm SuperData states that the open world action RPG could sell 4 to 6 million units by 2017 end and even more in its lifetime.
SuperData research Joost van Dreunen spoke to MCVUK and said, “Based on our initial observations we believe that Horizon Zero Dawn can sell around 4-6M units by end of 2017, given its early in the year release.
“Lifetime sales will likely be around 6-8M, which puts it in the same category as Uncharted 4 and Metal Gear Solid 5.” Positive reviews are also a strong factor in all this according to van Dreunen.
He also noted that the release timing is a “strong strategic move” on behalf of Sony. “Now that we are in the second half of the current console cycle forces Sony and its rival Microsoft into a price war for the more risk-averse consumers that typically enter the market at this stage.”
Horizon: Zero Dawn is out on February 28th for PS4.
