Former Guerrilla Production Director on Horizon: Zero Dawn’s Alleged Delay: “Not Surprised”

on April 21, 2016 2:53 PM

Yesterday we reported on the rumor alleging that Guerrilla Games’ PS4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn might be delayed to early 2017. Today Guerrilla Games Co-Founder and former Production Director Arjan Brussee chimed in.

Brussee meentioned on Twitter that he’s not surprised, also taking the chance to cheer on his former team:

Brussee left Guerrilla Games in 2012 after nine years at the helm of the company, moving first to Electronic Arts and then to found Boss Key Productions with Cliff Bleszinski. He is currently working on the studio’s first game, LawBreakers.

While it’s understandable that some who wanted to play Horizon: Zero Dawn as soon as possible might be disappointed (assuming that the rumor is true), Brussee’s attitude is definitely wise: Delays are often seen negatively by part of the audience, but they provide developers with valuable time to make games even greater. And it’s not like we don’t have a ton of games to play in the meanwhile, anyway.

That said, keep in mind that Sony did not yet confirm or deny the report, so you should take it with the customary grain of salt until further news surface.
