You're looking at the birth of a massive new PlayStation franchise here: Horizon: Zero Dawn has sold 2.6 million units in the two weeks since its release. Those numbers represent copies of the game in consumers' hands, rather than shipped to stores. It makes the game Sony's best-selling new first-party IP of the generation and it's also Guerrilla Games' largest ever debut.
"We knew Horizon: Zero Dawn was going to be something special, so to see the incredible critical reaction to a brand new game world translate into this level of sales is really gratifying," said Sony's Shawn Layden in a press release. "Guerrilla has created a game that is nothing short of exceptional, and the reaction we have seen from fans – from hours and hours of gameplay streaming to endless photo sharing – shows just how impactful it has been."
It's worth mentioning that in addition to the commercial success – which spans Blu-ray and PlayStation Store sales – the game is also currently one of the highest rated releases of the year, and is sure to receive a slew of accolades when it comes to Game of the Year time.
Sony bet big on this one – a point that it's been eager to reiterate on multiple occasions – but it looks like the gamble has paid off. Now, about that DLC…
