HORIZON: ZERO DAWN Will Make Its Way to PC at Some Point This Summer, Sony Has Confirmed

After two months of waiting, Sony has just announced that one of the best PlayStation 4–exclusive titles is on the way to PC — and just like Death Stranding, the Guerrilla Games–created Horizon Zero Dawn will be released on PC this summer.

As a reminder, Kotaku's Jason Schreier broke the news that Sony had plans to bring Horizon Zero Dawn to PC back in January, with the team at Amazon France basically confirming its existence just last month. 

Horizon Zero Dawn won't even be the first PS4-exclusive game to make the jump to PC, with the aforementioned Death Stranding coming to both Steam and the Epic Games Store on June 2, 2020.

As revealed by PlayStation's Worldwide Studios President Hermen Hulst in an interview with PlayStation Blog, more details on the PC port of Zero Dawn will be shared by the studio directors "pretty soon."

"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," he said. "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."

The fact that both Death Stranding & Zero Dawn will be available on PC teases a big shift in thinking at Sony.

For the longest time, the company was trying to do everything it could to avoid releasing its titles on other platforms than PS4, so one question has to be raised — are Marvel's Spider-Man, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and God of War also coming to PC? We'll obviously keep you updated as the situation continues to develop.

Horizon Zero Dawn is an exhilarating new action role playing game exclusively for the PlayStation 4 System, developed by the award winning Guerrilla Games, creators of PlayStation’s venerated Killzone franchise. Take on the role of skilled hunter Aloy as you explore a vibrant and lush world inhabited by mysterious mechanized creatures.

Horizon Zero Dawn is currently available for PlayStation 4; coming to PC this summer.
