With slightly more than three years since Aloy and Horizon Zero Dawn waltzed onto our screens, and now they'll go PC too, as was revealed by Guerilla's former managing director and current Head of Worldwide Studios at Sony, Hermen Hulst.
Asked by the PlayStation blog whether Horizon Zero Dawn is happening for PC, Hulst said, "Yes, I can confirm that Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to PC this summer…. There will be more information coming from Guerrilla, from the new studio directors [Michiel van der Leeuw, JB van Beek, and Angie Smets] pretty soon."
Obviously, Sony decided it's time for Aloy to branch out, and although many recent PS4 exclusives made the switch to PC, this is the first in-house exclusive to cross the proverbial divide.
Hulst thinks that it's important to stay ahead of the curve, which may mean that people get introduced to the brand in other ways. If you're worried that Sony's wall of exclusivity will shatter entirely, then worry not - he doesn't think that's going to happen.
"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", he said.
What else to say except great news, seeing as platforms really shouldn't be the limiting factor in enjoying games. Granted, it's been three years from the release of Horizon Zero Dawn, so Guerilla and Sony haven't exactly rushed it, but better late than never.
