Horizon Zero Dawn will be available to PC gamers this summer. 

It has been confirmed that Horizon Zero Dawn will be making its way to Steam later this year. The announcement was made by Guerrilla, the game's developer, on Twitter.  The news was also shared by Sony Head of World Wide Studios Hermen Hulst on the PlayStation Blog. It is unknown if the game will be exclusive to Steam, or if it will release on other storefronts as well. 

"Yes, I can confirm that Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to PC this summer," Hulst stated. "There will be more information coming from Guerrilla from the new studio directors [Michiel van der Leeuw, JB van Beek, and Angie Smets' pretty soon." 

A specific release date for the PC port of Horizon Zero Dawn has not been given at this time. The version of the game releasing on Steam is the complete edition, which will come with the Frozen Wilds expansion. Players will also receive a number of items, including two bows. 

While Hulst did state that Horizon Zero Dawn was a good fit for PC, he did state that gamers should not expect every PS4 exclusive to make its way to PC. 

"I think it's important that we stay open to new ideas of how to introduce more people to PlayStation, and show people maybe what they've been missing out on," says Hulst. "And to maybe put a few minds at ease, releasing one first-party AAA title to PC doesn't necessarily mean that every game now will come to PC. In my mind, Horizon Zero Dawn was just a great fit in this particular instance. We don't have plans for day and date [PC releases], and we remain 100% committed to dedicated hardware." 

Horizon Zero Dawn is available now for the PlayStation 4. While a sequel for the game has not been announced, a job listing put out by Guerrilla suggests that one may be in the works.
