“Horizon: Zero Dawn” was a game widely expected to debut sometime this year but game developer Guerrilla Games bares that the fans may have to wait a bit longer. The Sony PlayStation 4 exclusive’s release has been bumped up to February 28, 2017, citing visuals and game play quality as the reasons behind the delay.

Guerrilla Games managing director Hermen Hulst revealed the news concerning “Horizon: Zero Dawn”, despite knowing the high anticipation for the said game. The additional time gained from the delay will help developers fine-tune the game overall as it tries to uphold the same level that the company has employed on other game titles.

"We're confident that the advantages of the additional development time afforded by the new date will become clear in the coming months. We really, really appreciate your patience and continued support, and look forward to bringing you the best game we possibly can in February 2017."

“Horizon: Zero Dawn” was announced last year at E3 2015 that featured full night-and-day cycles where players will be tasked to do a lot of exploration. That included checking out forests, mountains and ruins of a bygone civilization.

As far as interaction is concerned, there will be robot dinosaurs on “Horizon: Zero Dawn”, including the one on the poster known as “Thunderjaw”.

It should be noted that while “Horizon: Zero Dawn” offer an ambitious setup, there will be no multiplayer mode included. Instead, there will be alleged “social features” though such will be taken more in detail later on.

Despite the delay, “Horizon: Zero Dawn” is curiously being advertised for E3 2016. Though the game may be delayed, gamers looking forward to it may get more glimpses of what to expect for the game when it is officially released on February 2017.
