It’s been rumoured for a while, but now it’s confirmed: (former) PlayStation exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to PC.
It’s a sadly familiar pattern of events. Kotaku’s Jason Scheier reveals some interesting news about a video game. Then, hordes of internet morons give him abuse for some reason. He’s called all sorts of unpleasant names and is accused of being a liar, an agitator, or both.
Then the thing that Jason predicted comes to pass. And do you know what? All those people, who gave him abuse for no reason at all – they don’t rush forward to apologise when he’s proven right. (They never do.)
In the latest variant, pertaining to Horizon Zero Dawn, the salient details are as follows:
- Horizon Zero Dawn released exclusively for PlayStation 4 in 2017
- In the intervening period, lots of people bought and enjoyed the game on PS4
- Sony (and Guerrilla, the developer) presumably wanted to make more money
- (If they make more money, it will allow them to make more video games)
- Jason Scheier suggested that Horizon Zero Dawn would be coming to PC
- PlayStation fanboys got very upset with him, because of reasons only they can explain
- (They can’t explain the reasons. There’s no reason to gatekeep. Ever. Grow up.)
- Sony today announces that Horizon Zero Dawn will be coming to PC this summer
It's confirmed! Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition is coming to PC 🏹
We're excited that more players will be able to meet Aloy and explore the world of Horizon Zero Dawn this summer! https://t.co/Q1BknmCsQT

Specifically, the Horizon Zero Dawn PC release will be the game’s Complete Edition. That includes the base game, the excellent Frozen Wilds expansion, and also a bunch of other stuff that isn’t really important.
The game already has a Steam store page, too. We don’t have a release date for it, yet, but the Horizon Zero Dawn PC version will release in Summer 2020.
(Do yourself a favour – don’t read the replies on that Tweet. Or replies to Jason, as a rule.)
