Sony Interactive Entertainment announced the PlayStation 4 exclusive, Horizon: Zero Dawn, has sold more than 2.6 million units worldwide in two weeks. The figure includes units sold at retail and digitally through the PlayStation Store. 

The game is the best-selling new first party IP launch on the PlayStation 4 and is Guerrilla's 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."

Guerrilla Managing Director Hermen Hulst added, "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. 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."

Yeah, looking forward to it because it's tough to make comparisons to TLoU's 1.3 million opening considering HZD's opening includes digital.

Hopefully the success of this game will show other developers that taking chances on new and original IPs CAN be a good thing.

Crazy that Horizon sold 500K+ more in two weeks than Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break and Recore did...combined... in lifetime sales! (per VGChartz estimates)

Wow I was not expecting this. Optimism puts it at 8-10m for me, but likely more on the lines of 5-8m. Can't wait to play H.Z.D.

GOTY for me, nothing is going to top this in 2017 imo, it's breathtakingly beautiful, the story is fascinating, the gameplay is incredibly rich with RPG/action/adventure elements, the characters (particularly Alloy) are well voiced with generally good dialogue and you genuinely care what happens to her and want to discover more about her.
