Sony confirms Horizon Zero Dawn PC port coming summer 2020

A PS4 exclusive no more.

The rumors are true: Horizon Zero Dawn is officially receiving a Windows PC port. The smash hit open-world RPG was a PlayStation 4 exclusive when it launched in 2017, but it appears that Sony is adjusting their strategy.

Hermen Hulst, head of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios, confirmed that the post apocalyptic dinosaur survival game will arrive on PC in summer 2020 in an interview with Sony’s PlayStation blog on Tuesday.

“I can confirm that Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to PC this summer,” said Hulst. “There will be more information coming from Guerrilla, from the new studio directors [Michiel van der Leeuw, JB van Beek, and Angie Smets] pretty soon.”

Hulst was quick to make clear that this doesn’t mean Sony will begin porting over all of its exclusives to PC or other platforms. So while the possibility remains open that more exclusives may end up on PC, fans shouldn’t expect new PlayStation games to release on both platforms at the same time.

Microsoft has long used the strategy of releasing Xbox exclusives for both the Xbox console and Windows 10 (aka PC) at launch. This has allowed for a larger audience to play their games, while still technically operating within the Microsoft ecosystem.

“I think it’s important that we stay open to new ideas of how to introduce more people to PlayStation, and show people maybe what they’ve been missing out on,” said Hulst.

“And to maybe put a few minds at ease, releasing one first-party AAA title to PC doesn’t necessarily mean that every game now will come to PC. In my mind, Horizon Zero Dawn was just a great fit in this particular instance. We don’t have plans for day and date [PC releases], and we remain 100% committed to dedicated hardware.”
