Watch out for Horizon Zero PC gamers: The masterpiece of guerrilla games from 2017 will be released for Windows in just a few months, so that even customers without PlayStation will finally have the opportunity to catch up on the Open World RPG around the cyberpunk dinosaurs.
Hermen Hulst, the head of PlayStation Worldwide Studios, confirmed the existence of the PC version of Horizon Zero Dawn in an interview with the PlayStation Blog today. The game was originally released on March 1, 2017 for the PlayStation 4, the console version is still available on Amazon for 26 euros.
No specific release date was given, but the game is scheduled to be released this summer. The title is already listed on Steam, with various extensions already included. This makes Horizon Zero Dawn the first PlayStation exclusive that was developed by Sony and has also appeared on another platform after its launch on the in-house console.
According to the studio boss, it’s about showing people what they missed and making more customers familiar with the PlayStation brand and exclusive console games. Sony is thus changing its strategy, which was primarily about using exclusive titles such as God of War or Spider Man as bait, so that as many customers as possible buy the current console.
However, Herman Hulst states that the release of an AAA Sony game on the PC does not mean that all titles will make the jump to another platform in the future. So you shouldn’t assume that Sony is adapting its strategy to that of Microsoft – the Redmond group publishes all internally developed Xbox games on the same day on the PC.
