Forums - Sales Discussion - Horizon Zero Dawn Predicted To Sell 8 Million Units, Close To Uncharted 4

I will be re-visiting some of these HZD Topics and letting people see how they, and others, predicted. From here, those that doubted the article will be served some crow today!

Come munch!

So how much did Uncharted sold so far??



To be honest, I thought it will sell 3 ~ 4 millions.



I just completed this game recently, only took 84 hours. Man what fantastic game this is.
There needs to be another large expansion that adds more skills, levels, and massive amounts of game-play

8 million is a little high I think, but I think it will sell 4 million in its first year, around 6 million lifetime.

There's my prediction from February 23rd, too low it turns out...

Here's some classics:

It is a new IP and there are too many other great games releasing within the same timeframe. So this number is highly unlikely 1-3 million would be more realistic.

Thats a tad ambitious for a new ip. Maybe 2-3mil.

If estimates are accurate, around 10m. Meaning Horizon is closing in fast.

10M only physical copies, digital should be big too

At the time the 8.7m sold figure was announced, VGC has Uncharted 4 at 8m sold retail, so 0.7m digital.

Physical is probably slightly overtracked (at least at the time of that announcement) because that would be the digital ratio at just 8%.

But regardless yes Uncharted 4 should have easily passed 10m and likely 11m by now including digital.

Perhaps higher. 10.5-11m is a safe bet.



                                                                                                                                            

Assuming the game does not release on PS5 (you never know...), 9-10 million seem very reasonable.

A very impressive success!
