Horzion Zero Dawn Delayed

The fine folks over at Guerrilla Games announced today that Horizon Zero Dawn has been delayed to February 28, 2017. The action-RPG made its first appearance during the Sony press conference at E3 2015. The announcement trailer had all of us at Geek Legacy going gaga over what can be described as robotic dinosaurs walking among us.

Herman Hulst, Managing Director at Guerrilla Games posted this message on the PlayStation Blog:

As you can see in the trailer, we’ve decided to push the release date for Horizon Zero Dawn to February 28, 2017. It wasn’t an easy choice to make; we know many of you have been anxious to play the game since we first announced it. 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.

We realize that this decision may not please everyone. At the same time, we’re confident that the advantages of the additional development time afforded by the new date will become clear in the coming months, as we start to share more cool details and videos from Horizon Zero Dawn. We really, really appreciate your patience and continued support, and look forward to bringing you the best game we possibly can in February 2017.

Those of you that listen to the Pixelated Podcast know our stance on game delays, which is to release it when it’s ready. There’s no need to rush and pump out unplayable garbage. Sure it’s a little disappointing knowing this game won’t be found under our Christmas Tree in December, but it’s encouraging to know the developers want to make the game right and live up to its full potential.

Check out the new trailer below and get ready for all sorts of gaming greatness come next week at E3 2016.
