Is there a Horizon Zero Dawn Xbox One release date?

Is Horizon Zero Dawn coming to Xbox One?

Horizon Zero Dawn Xbox One

There are currently no plans to release a Horizon Zero Dawn Xbox One port. There’s no Horizon Zero Dawn Xbox One release date to look forward to as a result.

Although it might be easy to assume that HZD Xbox One could happen now that the game isn’t a PlayStation exclusive, it isn’t very likely. The reason for this is that Xbox is PlayStation’s most direct competitor, whereas PC gaming largely occupies a different marketplace. Former PS4-exclusive titles like Death Stranding, Heavy Rain, and Beyond: Two Souls have all hit PC without ever coming to Xbox.

Similarly, first-party Xbox games launch on PC but not PS4. There are a few rare cases to the contrary, mostly surrounding Minecraft and its spin-offs, but Sony has never launched a first-party PlayStation game on Xbox. There’s a first for everything, of course, but we wouldn’t advise betting on this.

Horizon Forbidden West is a sequel that’s currently being developed by Guerilla Games for PS5. It’s being positioned as a system-seller, which just goes to show that Sony has big plans for the franchise moving forwards. Making the series available on competing console hardware could be likened to self-sabotage in some ways.

Will Horizon Zero Dawn come to Xbox One?
