In a recent blog post it’s been confirmed that No Man’s Sky will indeed be delayed to add an extra layer of polish on some elements of the game.
Speaking on Playstation.Blog, Hello Games founder Sean Murray offered the following:
“The game really has come together, and it’s such an incredible relief. As we sit an (sic) 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.
After a short delay, No Man’s Sky will launch in North America on August 9, in Europe August 10, and in the UK August 12.”
This may be disappointing news for many, but hopefully this will allow Hello Games the time to produce the game they’ve wanted to make this whole time. What we’ve seen looks incredible, and with the promise of such a vast universe in the full game, there should be plenty more to come!
Will you be picking NMS up at launch? What’re you most excited for?
