It's confirmed, PS4 exclusive game "Horizon Zero Dawn" will not arrive this year and states February 28, 2017 as the final release date. Guerrilla Games explains why they had to delay the game's release, citing quality issues as the main factor that they want to prolong the development of the game. But considering how the game relies on the quality of its graphics, Guerrilla had to make sure, they will deliver a quality video game to their fans.

According to the PlayStation LifeStyle, a previous announcement of the game's delay has been made as early as April this year. Now, Guerrilla Games managing director Hermen Hulst formally announced the delay saying "It wasn't an easy choice to make; we know many of you have been anxious to play the game since we first announced it. However, we also want to ensure that Horizon Zero Dawn lives up to the visuals and gameplay quality that our games are known for. The new date affords us the extra time required to deliver fully on our ambitious vision for Horizon Zero Dawn."

Because the game has massive features, it's impossible for the whole team to finish the development in time. Nevertheless, they said the game is almost on its 100 percent state. A few enhancements just needs to be done in order to give the players one of the best gaming experience ever.

Interestingly, PlayStation LifeStyle, also was able to give some of the essential details of the game, mainly the animals involved that players can take advantage as food and trading. Weapons are included, but some of them needs to be hunted down in machines. Aloy, the main character in the game can also swim, so you pretty much know the idea behind "Horizon Zero Dawn."
