Originally a Playstation 4 exclusive, Horizon: Zero Dawn will be available on PC, according to Kotaku sources. It’s quite a big move all things considered, as one can foresee the publisher releasing games on platforms apart from its own consoles. At time of writing, Sony did not respond for comment.
In a post-apocalyptic United States filled with robot dinosaurs, Horizon: Zero Dawn is an open world game that originally launched February 2017 for the PS4. Three years on, the game is now set for another platform. It’s possible it will see on both the Epic Games Store and Steam on launch, but details are probably not finalized yet. We’d also hope for the PC version to not be locked to 30 frames per second.
The PC version of Horizon: Zero Dawn would be the first big exclusive game from a Sony-owned developer arriving on the platform. Death Stranding would also be on PC, but Kojima Productions is independent, with the game published by 505 Games for PC rather than Sony. Both the mentioned games run Guerrilla’s Decima Engine, having worked closely together in recent years.
Publishing games on PC for Sony especially is a big deal, considering games funded and developed by Sony has been typically exclusive to the Playstation consoles. One would hope, then, this is a sign of things to come, when you also consider the fact that Final Fantasy VII Remake is supposedly a timed exclusive.
