Horizon Forbidden West PS5 PS4

As part of a celebratory PlayStation Blog post all about the 20th anniversary of Guerrilla Games, the first-party team has announced Horizon Forbidden West has sold 8.4 million units as of 16th April 2023. This is purely counting all PS5, PS4 sales and does not factor in any downloads from PS Plus Extra. In total — with the original Horizon Zero Dawn and also Horizon Call of the Mountain included — the Horizon series has now sold 32.7 million copies, including PS Plus and the Play At Home redemptions.

The sales milestone makes Horizon Forbidden West one of PS5's best-selling games, competing in the upper echelons with the likes of God of War Ragnarok and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales. "All told, it’s a milestone we never imagined possible twenty years ago when we first started making games," said studio director Jan-Bart van Beek. The PS5 version has since been updated with a significant expansion in Burning Shores, so sales of the base game should receive a boost in the near future.

Beek continues: "This reception has been staggering, and we’re grateful to the community for the continued love and support for the franchise. We Guerrillas feel lucky to witness that support every day: we share community fanart and the cosplay. I want you all to know we are completely blown away by your enthusiasm." He then teases the third instalment: "Her latest mission takes her to the ruins of Los Angeles in Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores, and we can’t wait for you to find out where she’ll go next."
