Former Horizon Zero Dawn Producer Responds to Angry Fans Over PC Port

In response to angry PlayStation fans on Twitter, former Guerrilla Games producer defends decision for PC port of Horizon Zero Dawn.

Right after developer Guerrilla Games has officially confirmed a month-old rumor for PC version of 2017 action role-playing game Horizon Zero Dawn lately, it sparked a reaction among PlayStation 4 player community online.

Many who are upset are part of a vocal minority that is not happy that HZD will no longer be an exclusive to Sony platform. A former producer at Guerrilla Games, Sam Sharma recently reaches out one of these angry fans with a response.

RELATED: Horizon Zero Dawn Coming to PC in Summer 2020

When an irritated PS4 player shared a video clip of a trashed office earlier, implying that it was vandalized by that outraged fan as a reaction to the announcement, former producer of the game Sam Sharma decided to reply back.

This user @THEAP99 on Twitter has tagged a number of Sony associates who worked on or somehow have ties to Horizon, which probably lead Sharma to take notice of this ranting video that has now been watched over a million times.

Upon seeing a heated response, Sharma reaches out to that fuming fan by saying the following on his Twitter.

When Sharma chimed in to that Tweet, PlayStation fans on social media became split arguing over merit of this move from Sony. Many are really appreciative to decision of HZD port and then some are on serious meltdown mode.

Soon, it was all revealed to be a prank from a parody account that was planned for months. Nevertheless, a lot of fans are really annoyed that a PlayStation 4-exclusvie game would now become available to another platform.

Some are even pointing out that "Only on PlayStation" marketing line on games are literally a scam then. As Sharma pointed out, releasing a previously exclusive game for a new platform after years shouldn't takeaway one's enjoyment.

Horizon Zero Dawn may have sold its share of units on PS4 console already but its sales number on PC may be a driving factor for them to consider this strategy in future and there could be more ports from current console generation.

Horizon Zero Dawn Coming to PC in Summer 2020

PC version of Horizon Zero Dawn will be coming on summer 2020 and Sony has no plans to port every PlayStation exclusives.

Last year, a rumor from Russian YouTuber Anton Logvinov hinted that critically-acclaimed 2017 action role-playing game Horizon Zero Dawn, a PlayStation 4-exclusive from developer Guerrilla Games may get a PC port by early 2020.

Then in January 2020, a Kotaku report from Jason Schreier has confirmed that very claim and most recently, Hermen Hulst of Worldwide Studios has announced a PC version of HZD has been scheduled to come out in summer 2020.

RELAETD: Horizon Zero Dawn May Come to PC

Horizon Zero Dawn was launched in February 2017 by publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and become one of the best-selling PS4 games of all time by selling over 10 million copies worldwide by its second year anniversary.

HZD getting a PC port is a first for Sony to release one of their internally developed first-party titles to a platform outside of PlayStation, except for PlanetSide 2 from Sony Online Entertainment and this is a very unusual for them.

RELAETD: Horizon Zero Dawn Sequel Confirmed by Voice Actor

Although Sony published Hideo Kojima's widely-anticipated 2019 release Death Stranding on PS4 last year, its PC version is getting released by 505 Games and in that case, developer Kojima Productions was an independent studio.

Same goes for French game developer studio Quantic Dream, who released PC version for some of their well-known titles at least more than a year later that were previously launched by Sony as exclusives to PlayStation consoles.

RELAETD: Job Listing Suggests Horizon Zero Dawn Sequel in Development?

In his recent interview, Hulst explains that open-world game Horizon Zero Dawn is just a great fit for a more powerful hardware than PS4 and Sony is keen to show people what they are truly missing out as they stay open to new ideas.

However, releasing one first-party AAA game on PC simply doesn't mean that every other PlayStation IPs will now follow and make debut on a different platform, even though Microsoft has been using this same strategy for years.

RELAETD: Horizon Zero Dawn Hits 10 Million Sales

Though rumor for a sequel to Horizon was revealed by a voice actor followed by a job listing in November 2019 almost confirmed that, Guerilla Games remains completely silent and wants everyone to focus on its upcoming PC port.

Horizon Zero Dawn is currently listed on Steam as Complete Edition of the game and is published by PlayStation Mobile. PC version will include add-on items and The Frozen Wilds expansion pack alongside HZD full game.

Dutch descendant Iana is a new Attacker in Team Rainbow and a systems engineering specialist. She is a normal-speed, medium-armor Rainbow agent who primarily wields ARX 200 or G36C assault rifle and creates holograms to deceive enemies.

Using her Gemini Replicator gadget, she makes holographic copy that really can't do any harm but creates confusion among rival team. However, her lifelike deceptions are of less use while facing Operators like Bandit, Kaid, Maestro and Mute.

Also joining in is a new Defender from GIGR regiment named Oryx, who is a Jordanian powerhouse of brute strength. Using his unique Remah Dash ability, he can easily smash barricades and walls that have no reinforcements.

Oryx usually carries a SPAS-12 shotgun and MP5 assault rifle when he is not busy ramming into other Operators. His dash attack is pretty intimidating against shield-bearing Operators like Blitz, Fuze, Montagne, Recruit and Tachanka.
