Sean Murray, the founder of Hello Games came out publicly to confirm that though No Man’s Sky is delayed, the sandbox space exploration game will launch in North America come August 9th, in Europe August 10th, and in the UK August 12th.
He also spoke on the delay, saying it was ‘a tough choice’:
We understand that this news is disappointing. 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.
The universe of No Man’s Sky is incredibly vast. More than you can imagine. This is a type of game that hasn’t been attempted before, by a smaller team than anyone would expect, under an intense amount of expectation.
And just in case you need a bit of reminding of what we can expect come release date… check out one of the earlier previews of gameplay.
No Man’s Sky is slated for release on Playstation 4 and PC come August 9th (US) / August 10th (EU), and August 12th (UK)
