Sony and Guerilla Games have announced that Horizon Zero Dawn has sold over 20 million copies globally across PlayStation 4 and PC.
The new statistic reflects the number of copies sold on both platforms as of November 2021. Additionally, more than one billion hours have been spent playing the game. This news bodes well for the franchise as its sequel is set to release next week.
Head of PlayStation Studios Herman Hulst said in a Tweet, “Wow, Horizon Zero Dawn has officially sold over 20 MILLION copies around the world across PS4 and PC!” What an incredible achievement Guerrilla, and a big thank you to our hugely supportive fans!”

Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad mentions that Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition’s release on both PS4 and PC helped the game reach the sales milestone. The last known sales figure for the game was over 10 million back in 2019, and so has doubled since then.
Horizon Zero Dawn also now joins God of War (2018), Uncharted 4, and The Last of Us (across both the PS3 version and the PS4 remaster) in the 20 million-plus copies sold category.
The sequel, Horizon Forbidden West, releases on February 18 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. IGN published an exclusive preview of the game last month.
