Guerrilla Games has revealed that Horizon Forbidden West has sold 8.4 million units so far and that the franchise overall has sold 32.7 million.
In a PlayStation Blog post, studio director and studio art and animation director Jan-Bart van Beek said: “Millions more around the world have discovered Horizon thanks to PlayStation’s subscription services and initiatives, including PlayStation Plus, and Play at Home.
“All told, it’s a milestone we never imagined possible twenty years ago when we first started making games.”
Guerrilla has already confirmed that a third main game in the Horizon series is currently in development over at the studio as well as an online game. The latest game in the franchise is Horizon: Call of the Mountain for PSVR 2 and Horizon Forbidden West received the Burning Shores DLC last month.
Aloy’s keeping busy in other media too, as there’s also an upcoming Horizon Netflix series in the works from Umbrella Academy director Steve Blackman.
In IGN’s Horizon Forbidden West: Burning Shores review, we said: “The story is more concerned with developing character than it is working towards dealing with the imminent world-ending threat, and it’s Aloy at her most personal and believable yet. A couple of poor boss battles aside, it’s a great new chapter with enough creative new bells and whistles to keep fans more than happy.”
