Forbidden Horizon in the West – The first PlayStation exclusive of 2022 – topped the UK charts in its opening week. Data collected by Ukie shows that the much-anticipated Horizon Zero Dawn sequel topped the UK box office for the week ending February 19. The data does not include digital sales (expected next week). ), so doesn’t give the full picture of the game’s launch sales.
Forbidden West is the second-biggest PS5 launch to date, ahead of FIFA 22 but after Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Guerrilla Games’ title is also the second-biggest launch of 2022, behind Nintendo’s Pokemon Legends. Figures from Christopher Dring of GamesIndustry.biz confirm actual sales fell ‘about a third’ from Horizon Zero Dawn’s launch sales. Dring says this is not surprising considering the still limited availability of PlayStation 5 and the rise of digital media in recent years.
