Yesterday another State of Play took place, during which we saw the presentation of Horizon Forbidden West. The title of Guerrilla Games is very popular and generated a record viewership.
Guerrilla Games yesterday presented a long material from Horizon Forbidden West , during which we saw how the production works and looks like on PlayStation 5. The developers showed the adventure for the first time, and Sony may already be planning the premiere of the position and the publisher does not have to worry about the interest in the game.
The last State of Play in just three hours outperformed all previous (single) presentations, i.e. events during which Sony showed one game. It should be noted here that even The Last of Us 2, a very famous brand, generated a much worse result.
Already, Horizon Forbidden West will attract over 2.6 million viewers (in less than 24 hours), and for example The Last of Us 2 generated 1.5 million viewers a year.
We cannot talk about a direct shift of interest in the relationship to sales, but Sony certainly takes such factors into account and the corporation should not be worried about the future of its relatively young IP.
