Daniel Ahmad, Niko Partners analyst mentionsHorizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition was released on PC and PS4 in order to help the game hit the sales milestone. The previous sales figures for the game were over 10,000,000 in 2019, but that number has more than doubled since then.
Horizon Zero Dawn now joins Uncharted 4 and God of War (2018) in the 20,000,000-plus copy category.
Horizon Forbidden West is the sequel and will be released for PlayStation 4 (PS4) and PlayStation 5 (PS5). IGN published a preview of the game last month.
