However, we also want to ensure that Horizon Zero Dawn lives up to the visuals and gameplay quality that our games are known for. The new date affords us the extra time required to deliver fully on our ambitious vision for Horizon Zero Dawn.”Horizon Zero Dawn was originally announced at Sony’s E3 2015 press briefing, and managed to generate considerable buzz for the game despite being featured alongside reveals for long-demanded titles like Shenmue III, a Final Fantasy VII remake, and The Last Guardian, the last of which is still set for a 2016 release.This year has already seen delays for two of the PS4’s most anticipated titles. Uncharted 4 was pushed back a number of times before its May launch, and No Man’s Sky (which is also set for PC release) was shifted from June to August.Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Publishing & Retail newsletter and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.
