Arrived on PS4 and PS5 just over a year ago, Horizon Forbidden West it has proved to be a product of excellent workmanship, worthy exponent of a saga that in a few years has established itself as one of the most important in the PlayStation panorama. The critics welcomed it with enthusiasm, but the public? Did you manage to repeat the success of Horizon Zero Dawn?
From the sales data officially communicated by Sony at the beginning of February (and updated to December 31, 2022) it emerged that Horizon Forbidden West has sold less than five million copies. Unfortunately we are unable to provide you with a more precise number, since it was Sony itself that did not communicate it: Forbidden West does not appear in that document and the extremely vague figure was deduced by observing the last game mentioned in the standings , Death Stranding, which has in fact sold 5 million copies.
As it stands, therefore, Horizon Forbidden West’s sales pale in comparison to those of Horizon Zero Dawnwhich according to what was declared by the Japanese company sold well as of 31 December 2022 20 million copies. Aloy’s first adventure clearly has a huge time advantage, having released in 2017, so Forbidden West still has plenty of time to narrow the gap.
It must be said, in any case, that the start was not promising: just to make a comparison, God of War Ragnarok, an exclusive launched in November 2022, took just a month and a half to break through the 11 million copies sold mark , when instead Forbidden West has not even reached 5 million in 10 months.
