Sony released their brand new IP, Horizon Zero Dawn and it happened in the same week Zelda Breath of the Wild launched on Nintendo Switch being the highest rated game in nine years. Horizon becomes PS4’s biggest ever new IP launch in the process and it beat out BOTW in week number one most likely because more people own PlayStation 4 consoles at this time.
Horizon is Sony’s biggest new franchise launch on PS4 – a title previously held by No Man’s Sky. It’s also the biggest PS4 launch in general since Uncharted 4. Zero Dawn also came in first in the latest UK charts which is on top of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
