Horizon: Zero Dawn might be delayed to 2017, and feature PS NEO support

Horizon Zero Dawn supposedly delayed until 2017

Horizon: Zero Dawn was one of the best reveals at E3 last year, but since then Sony and Guerrilla Games have remained rather silent over the open-world, robot wildlife hunting simulator. The game looked absolutely gorgeous during its first showing, which has only fuelled recent rumours around a more powerful PS4 being released really soon. And if a recent rumour is to be trusted, a lot of those pieces seem to be falling into place.

The PS NEO (or PS4K or PS4.5 or whatever you want to call it) is supposedly coming out either near the end of the year, or early next year. It stands to reason then that a game so graphically heavy like Horizon: Zero Dawn would do well as a sort of launch title (which shouldn’t make a difference to regular PS4 owners, remember). Industry insider Shinobi602 seems to think so, and his sources are telling him that Zero Dawn has already been pushed to 2017.

Shinobi602 has been on the money many, many times in the past, and was even one of the first people to share some of the themes that Horizon would eventually reveal at E3 last year. It’s still standing as a rumour until Sony themselves confirm the news – which I suspect will only be at E3 this year- but it’s not all too removed from the realm of reality. Games get delayed all the time, especially ones that haven’t had much revealed about them in such close proximity to their suspected launch window.

Who knows though, Sony could very well announce bot Horizon: Zero Dawn and the new PlayStation for 2016 at the massive conference in a few weeks time. But as far as history goes, I’d be more comfortable betting against that. Check out some gameplay from the conference last year below.

  1. Oh look, a PS game that will probably be PS NEO exclusive.

            I am a coffee snob in a sense. I like my coffee to coffee flavored coffee, no milk no sugar. The way one drinks it in the bushveld.

            Trevor no…just no. Neither Brandy should taste like coffee nor should coffee taste like brandy. When you drink you drink, no girly drinks are allowed. 😛

            I agree.
            Brandy is too weak to add to (and mess up) a decent cup of coffee.

            Variety is the spice of life, as much as I like plain black filter coffee sometimes I just want something different. I had a vanilla & cinnamon something-accino at Woolies cafe on Sat, that was damn nice.

            Those are nice yes, but VERY sweet

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            April 21, 2016 at 10:42

            Yeah, is a bit too sweet. Think it’s more the fault of the foam, once I got past that it was better.

            April 21, 2016 at 10:42

            I don’t drink milk or sugar in my coffee, so my varieties are pretty much plain black filter and espresso.
            BUT, I can never say no to a good latté in the winter.

            Oh drink it without milk, you can drink it with but it feels off… and crush the lemon a bit. Oh and if it’s too bitter add one teaspoon of sugar.

        My mother has to go for a knee replacement… for both her knees. This mean she can’t bake. Which means no money. Which means I’m going to have to step up and save money so that she can survive during the time she is healing. Which mean I might learn too live of air and water for awhile.
