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

If it continues showing strong legs, it can pass the combined sales of every other game GG has developed.

Mega sales for horizon. I'm so happy. Guaranteed to hit 9m this year imo and I reckon it will leg it to 10m too. So happy for guerilla. Been a big fan since killzone 2.

But this puts mhw sales into perspective. In 1 month it will have roughly sold the same on ps4 and xbox. Both series are huge.

Absolutely great sales, even more when you consider this is a new IP and previous games made by the developer didn't sell nearly as well as this one.

What are the biggest new IPs this gen?

Biggest exclusive new IP for each console.

Horizon Zero Dawn (PS4) - 7.6m
Tomodachi Life (3DS) - 6.14m
Splatoon (WiiU) - 4.91m
Titanfall (XBO) - 3.1m(Also on 360/PC....)
1-2-Switch (Switch) - 1.88m
Tearaway (Vita) - 0.69m*

Biggest new IP's combined platforms:

Destiny (PS3/360/PS4/XBO) - 16.2m* (includes Taken King)
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor (PS3/PS4/360/XBO/PC) - 9.96m* (Also used steamspy for this figure, 4.4m on steam)
Watch Dogs (PS3/360/PS4/XBO/PC) - 9.58m*
Titanfall (XBO/360/PC) - 5.07m*

*VGC Figures, physical only

Overwatch is probably very high if not at the top of the list, but can't get PC figures which no doubt make up the majority of sales for that game, over 6.2m on console.

Wow, thanks man. Great numbers indeed



That's huge, and we'll deserved. Had a barrel of fun with Horizon and I'll be there day 1 for the next game.

Guerrilla deserve this after the disappointing Killzone franchise.

Wow that's stupid high. I was gonna guess 6mil. 10mil possible

Still think it isn't selling a ton in Europe? :P

OT: Very nice numbers, I wonder what Sony's next big ip will be.

well, there also is PUBG which started service in march 2017 and afaik surpassed 20m copies sold



Seems like the price cuts and special sales really helped it! Especially during the holidays.

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

Really now, what insider gave you that information?

Anyway, awesome sales for a game that didn't even exist a year before.  Much deserved.

It's like you don't remember E3 flash sales, holiday sales + every so often got big discount. The game was on top during these months due to that. No need to be an insider, just observe Amazon and NPD threads.

 

If you just wanna point me as a downer, then do so. Fact is the game sold really well. Fact also is that legs are also due to heavy discounts and bundling.

Oops, yeah missed that one. Over 32m on steam according to steamspy. Which is far more than it deserves imo. xD

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. 

I prefer new games instead of stretching of current ones.
