Originally scheduled to release this year, Horizon Zero Dawn has been pushed back to February of next year. The new release date can be seen at the end of a new trailer for the game that focuses on the protagonist, Aloy.
Managing Director at Guerrilla Games Herman Hulst wrote on the PlayStation Blog about the decision:
“As you can see in the trailer, we’ve decided to push the release date for Horizon Zero Dawn to February 28, 2017. It wasn’t an easy choice to make; we know many of you have been anxious to play the game since we first announced it. However, we also want to ensure that Horizon Zero Dawn lives up to the visuals and gameplay quality that our games are known for. The new date affords us the extra time required to deliver fully on our ambitious vision for Horizon Zero Dawn.”
Expect to see more of Horizon Zero Dawn during Sony’s press briefing at E3 on Monday June 13 at 6pm PST.
