'Horizon Zero Dawn' sells more than 2.6M units in first two weeks SIE

According to numbers from Sony, the PS4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn has sold more than 2.6 million copies in its first two weeks on the market.  This includes both physical copy and digitally downloaded versions of the game.

Released Feb. 28, this makes the game the best-selling new first party IP launch on the PlayStation 4 and developer Guerrilla Games' biggest debut ever.

"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 Shawn Layden, Chairman of SIE Worldwide Studios.  "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."

Horizon Zero Dawn is an action RPG in which players take on the role of Aloy, a young hunter on a quest to discover her destiny among the remnants of the ancient past.  The game is set in a lush, post-post-apocalyptic world where machines roam the land and mankind is no longer the dominant species.

"We're thrilled that Horizon Zero Dawn has been embraced by critics and players alike. Developing the game was a labor of love, so it's extremely satisfying to see that it elicits the same passion and enthusiasm from the gaming public that we felt during its development," said Guerrilla Managing Director Hermen Hulst.  "This is only the beginning of Aloy's story and our exploration of the world of Horizon Zero Dawn, with the team already hard at work on an expansion to the story."

The ESRB rated Horizon Zero Dawn as "T for Teen".
