Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to PC this Summer confirms Sony's Hermen Hulst

Update - Horizon: Zero Dawn Complete Edition's Steam page is now Live

In an interview with PlayStation Blog, Sony's PlayStation Worldwide Studios head, Herman Hulst, has confirmed that Horizon: Zero Dawn will be coming to PC "this summer". 

More information about the game's planned PC release will arrive in the near future from Guerrilla Games. Guerrilla Games will likely confirm that the PC version of Horizon: Zero Dawn will feature the game PC enhancements as Death Stranding, due to the game's use of the same engine. 

Guerrilla Games created the Decima Engine which powers both Horizon Zero Dawn and Death Stranding. This makes a PC release for Horizon Zero Dawn more than possible. If Kojima Productions can do it, so can Guerilla Games. Kijima Production has also confirmed 60FPS support for its PC release of Death Stranding, alongside ultrawide screen support. 

In recent years, more and more former PlayStation exclusive titles have arrived on PC. Journey, Tetris Effect, Heavy Rain, Flower, Beyond: Two Souls, the Yakuza series and Detroit: Become Human are all examples of this. Developers want a broader install base for their games, and Sony could follow suit with some of its first-party studios. 

Sony's Herman Hulst has confirmed that the company remains "100% committed to dedicated hardware", and that "one first-party AAA title to PC doesn't necessarily mean that every game now will come to PC." That said, if Horizon: Zero Dawn proves successful on PC, it could push Sony towards developing more of its AAA lineup onto PC. 

Horizon Zero Dawn PC release teased by the insider who rredicted Death Stranding's PC version 
Technically speaking, there is no reason why Sony's exclusives couldn't come to the PC platform. All of these games are developed using PCs, that's a fact, and you can be confident that each of Sony's exclusive titles had in-development PC versions at some point in each game's development cycle. Yes, all of Sony's first-party games are created with PlayStation in mind; but there is no moving away from PC as a development platform.

The PlayStation 4 version of Horizon: Zero Dawn released with a 30FPS framerate lock, giving the game's PC version an immediate upgrade if the Decima Engine is capable of unlocked framerates. Higher framerates would help Horizon's animations look smoother and make its controls feel more responsive, factors which the game's PC version could definitely benefit from.

So much win! I hope it's proper remaster and not a lazy port, however, considering how good the game looked on a PS4 even a port won't look bad on PC...Quote

Agreed, Horizon Zero Dawn on a base PS4 manages to look better than many of the best looking PC games on top hardware already.Quote
