No Man’s Sky officially delayed till August

Find out when you can play the ambitious space adventure game

Rumors were swirling around the Internet in the last few days and it has now been confirmed that No Man’s Sky will miss its June 21 release date and instead hit consoles in August, according to a PlayStation Blog post by Hello Games founder Sean Murray.

The game will now hit the PlayStation 4 and PC on August 9 in the US, August 10 in Europe and August 12 in the UK.

“The game really has come together, and it’s such an incredible relief,” wrote Murray. “As we sit and play it now, and as I watch playtesters every day, I can finally let myself get excited. We’re actually doing this. However, as we approached our final deadlines, we realized that some key moments needed extra polish to bring them up to our standards. I have had to make the tough choice to delay the game for a few weeks to allow us to deliver something special.”

Murray clarified that he wants the game to be as polished as possible.

“We understand that this news is disappointing,” expressed Murray. “Making this game is the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life, but we are so close now, and we’re prepared to make the tough choices to get it right.”
