What you need to know

  • Horizon Zero Dawn is a 2017 game developed by Guerrilla Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
  • According to a new rumor, Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to PC.
  • The rumor indicates the game would launch on both Steam and the Epic Games Store.

According to a new report from Jason Schreier at Kotaku, Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to PC. Sources Schreier spoke with indicated that Sony is looking into directly publishing the game on PC through both Steam and the Epic Games Store. Horizon Zero Dawn was developed by Guerrilla Games, a studio purchased by Sony back in 2005.

Horizon Zero Dawn was successful critically and commercially, selling over 10 million copies to date since it first released back in February 2017. Horizon Zero Dawn runs on the Decima engine, which also powers Death Stranding, the recently released game from Kojima Productions. Death Stranding initially released as a PlayStation 4 exclusive and is coming to PC sometime in 2020.

Now, it's important to keep in mind that right now, this is just a rumor. With that said, Schreier has an excellent track record and we've already seen tiny signs that Sony may be bringing some games to PC, such as directly publishing the new Predator: Hunting Grounds title on PC later in 2020. We'll have to wait and see when or if Sony makes an official announcement regarding Horizon Zero Dawn or any other titles coming to PC.

  • If it's true, that'll be freaking awesome.
  • I think I speak for many PC gamers here.
    Exclusive games are what make us have the urge to get a console, but we generally don't give in, unless it's a Nintendo console/portable. I get every new Nintendo system and have my gaming PC/laptop.
  • I don't feel a need to play this game, like with many console exclusives. Otherwise I'd buy a console, which in this day and age, and with a powerful gaming PC, seems backwards. Exclusives are just an artificial way to get people to buy consoles. People should just buy gaming platforms for their own qualities, and the user's convenience (not everyone wants to boot into Windows or fiddle too much with software).
    In any case, there's a huge amount of games in my queue that Id likw to play before even considering giving my money to Sony.
  • You're missing out on a hell of a lot of awesome games if you don't play console exclusives. Forza Horizon, Breath of the Wild, Halo, Spiderman, Bloodborne, plus heaps more. Although I can understand having too many games on the pile already.
