Forums - Sony Discussion - Horizon Zero Dawn sells 7.6 million copies in its first year.

holly shit. those are huge numbers.

can it reach 10 million? i dont know, but those numbers are fantastic. certainly a hugely profitable game for Sony and GG. they have another mega franchise on their hands now.

That's amazing!!! I thought it would peak around 5m-6m max. Would be nice if it could reach 10M but I can only see it if its being bundled. Maybe a 2018 holiday bundle or something.

Does anybody know if this is the biggest selling new IP this gen?

Holy shit...that’s more than expected. Seems to have sold well during the holidays.

These flash sales at 20$ pricepoint were quite effective to revigor the game's legs

Yeah a couple times it came up I looked up the numbers for Horizon and thought they seemed far too low. ~8 million seems more accurate.

weird, didn't think Sony games sold on Sony systems

I thought mine was first 

Lol If only I didn't bother thinking on what to copy on the playstation blog. Mine would have been first but that's fine.

I got excited when I saw it. 7.8 Million is high! It's on par with UC4 now and this will continue to sell with bundling and discounts.
It's just a shame that GG will not do expansion DLC anymore. Hopefully with HZD 2 they will support it with post free DLC expansion and with couple more of paid DLC down the line. 
Also, I hope they put Multiplayer aswell. Where you can hunt with friends. I think that is a missed opportunity for GG.

Forgot the /s

Wow, I would have guess it was at around 6.5-6.9m not 7.6m.

Very impressive sales for any game, much less a new IP.

This might be the most successful new IP launch (on a single platform) in recent history.

Shot past my initial 6m lifetime prediction. And way WAY past some that thought 3m was the max it could do.

Great numbers, now give me Horizon 2 as PS5 launch title pls

Time to bring out the horizon sales prediction threads. I can't remember if I predicted or not but I certainly didn't think it was this high.
