Horizon Zero Dawn slips to 2017

One of the best looking upcoming PS4 exclusives won't be released this year.

Sony has confirmed a March 3rd 2017 release for the game in the UK, following a US release on February 28th. Such a delay had been rumoured by online tipster shinobi602 earlier this year, who alluded – perhaps in jest – to some possible upgrades for the upcoming PS4 Neo.

Rest assured that development on Horizon Zero Dawn is still going full steam ahead,” Guerrilla MD Hermen Hulst said. We've decided to push [back] the release date for Horizon Zero Dawn. 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 realise 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.”

Here's hoping Guerrilla doesn't have to endure a week of death threats.

Here's a new trailer:
