Probably because, if this is true, it is waaaay too early to show anything substantial for a while. If this is accurate, it sounds like the e3 video was a proof of concept video and nothing more.
Not true. The game, according to Shu, was already playable for over a year.

No developer would be spending one whole year to polish just a proof of concept and has not made any game assets since then.

Oof, why did I think this was going to be a late 2016 title?

That sucks, it's the only exclusive in the PS4 pipeline that I'm really interested in besides Uncharted.

Why is Guerilla so fucking stingy with footage for this game?
We just had a lengthy gameplay demo, and the game is still over a year out... In fact, I've seen more gameplay from the campaign of Horizon than I have games releasing this year, like Halo 5, Need for Speed, Persona 5 etc.

That would suck hard if true. Sony needs to get some good exclusives out for the PS4. As up to now, Bloodborne is the only one that has really done it for me.

Hey GAF!

Mark Norris from Guerrilla here. I just wanted to let you all know (and hopefully a mod can put it in the OP) that we are targeting a 2016 release date.

Lock it down I guess.


Edit: Beaten by the devs themselves!

Great, thanks for clarification. I put it in the OP, you were also interviewed by Budi, right?

Yeah this reminds me of time time my mom lied about my little brother's due date. I can't believe the birth was delayed. Really pissed me off and I haven't trusted my mom since. I also lost all hype for my brother, can't be bothered with him now.
Lmao

Sony need to be doing everything in their power to have that out by Christmas next year considering MS's lineup for end of 2016 as is (Crackdown 3, Halo Wars 2, Scalebound, Forza Horizon 3 assumingly).
And Gears 4 and Sea of Thieves potentially. It's a crazy 2016 line-up for Microsoft as is, but I imagine that some games for them will be susceptible to delay as well.

EDIT: oh, this was false? Lol

Looks like I'll hopefully be playing Horizon in 2016 then!

Just calm down, if there's a delay so what?
Companies do this often, they announce a new game, set a release date for the following year so that people have them in their radar and then sometimes delay it for when it's ready. It's going to happen with a lot of games that have been announced for 2016 and guess what, in 2017, it's going to happen again.
Remember Zelda Wii U and how a humongous amount of people in gaf said that there was no way it'll get delayed? It is what it is.

Tell those very talented guys and girls at GG that what's been shown so far is amazing :)

What that's pretty early. I was expecting Holiday 2017. Don't rush this GG, take all the time you need. I can wait all generation. Plenty of backlog to last me until then.

And now someone will say that targeting means nothing, and thus circle of GAF discussion will continue. :)

Game is targeting holiday 2016 of course but Sony is not putting a gun to their head to deliver the game by that date just like with Uncharted 4.
It's a new IP, it needs to be great and polished to become an other big franchise for Sony, if they rush it and people are disappointed you throw away all the investement for a few extra months.

Thank you, Mark. I think it is that time of bringing Horizon: Zero Dawn in 2016 on the PlayStation 4. Because you've been working on the game for about four and a half years right now and since you've got the mighty balls on working the story, the gameplay and the graphics. It is time with Aloy kicking some major dinosaur-esque robot ass!

No where has GG implied such.
