Horizon: Zero Dawn Dawns on PC This Summer

The Hermen Hulst Q&A on the PlayStation.Blog has a confirmation from the Head of PlayStation Worldwide Studios on the oft-rumored PC port of Horizon: Zero Dawn, saying Guerrilla Games' action/RPG will escape its PS4 exclusivity this summer. Here's the exchange:
PSB: Speaking of experimentation, there have been rumors of a Horizon Zero Dawn complete edition that might be coming to PC… can you confirm or deny that?
HH:
Yes, I can confirm that Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to PC this summer…. 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.

PSB: PlayStation is no stranger to publishing titles on the PC, but Horizon: Zero Dawn is one of the largest games to make that leap. Is there anything you would say to PlayStation fans? What does it mean for the future?
HH:
Sure. 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.

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.

I don't get this. Why is this guy concerned about how this efffects PS fans.
How many PS owners gives a rats behind about platform exclusivity? How is selling more copies of a favorite game bad for current owners on PS?
Kind of the opposite of PC master race buffoonery I guess.

I can't name names as I don't follow any, but if you hunt around youtube enough you can find channels run by people who are obsessed over this. Also over how their console hardware is some magnitude greater than any PC because... *jazz hands*
OK, that was funny. And true. Trunny?

It's amazing how many console owners HATE losing exclusivity. Maybe it makes them feel less like they "made the right choice"? It's also possible that PC gaming's resurgence (which I will credit to Streamers. Yep: they have a use) makes them worry that they're missing out if they can't afford a good gaming PC....but as long as there are exclusives to THEIR console of choice, it still has a reason to exist.

I watched Anne Munition play though this entire game on Twitch so I'm good. No worry of a bad port for me. I find console games are best enjoyed this way.

Why wouldn't it be safe to buy? You mean if it's a crappy port?

Yes. Exactly. I trust Guerrilla's PS4 quality. I'm just not sure about their PC quality. I want to make sure it is a solid port before buying. Thankfully, with it on Steam, I'll know from user reviews within a few days if it is a safe buy.

There's also the Steam refund policy. Just sayin'.

I'm definitely snagging this as I have no plans for a PS-4. If it's a janky port I'll report back (well, so will most of the Blue's population, I'm sure).

Great news, but I hope its a Steam release.

Found it.

What?! No exclusive devil's deal with Epic?

Nope per an update to the Steam Distribution Agreement in September last year.

"Delivery. Company shall submit the Applications to Steam for release no later than the first commercial release of each Application or Localized Version, or, if already commercially released as of the Effective Date, within (30) days of the Effective Date. Thereafter, Company shall submit to Steam any Localized Versions and Application Updates (in beta and final form) when available, but in no event later than they are provided to any other third party for commercial release. Company shall provide these copies in object code form, in whatever format Valve reasonably requests."

Once a company has agreed to "deliver" their game to Steam for launch – the files must be submitted to Steam before it's release (or 30 days after signing up to the program). Updates must also never happen later than on other platforms. The link above shows this under the "Sign SDA" tab when a publisher signs up to join the SDA program.
So there's now no way to withdraw from the distribution contact? What did the wording say before?

Well that took a while. Heard this game is amazing.

It is amazing. I didn't ever get around to playing the expansion on PS4, but the base game was a lot of fun. If they get mouse controls right I ill definitely buy it again and play the whole thing on PC.

The aiming is the thing between PC and console, innit? That's why HZD (and RDR2) has that time-dilation aiming mechanic in the first place. Did they adjust the timing of RDR2 on the PC port? I feel like, with a mouse, you'd need, like, half the time you get in Dead Eye mode to make it work, and keep it challenging.

Played it on the PS4. Great game but it was a bit of a chore to finish. The story and setting kept me going though.
