No Man’s Sky delayed until August

It seemed like it would just be three more weeks until gamers could get out and explore the universe, but don’t break out those space suits just yet. Sony and Hello Games officially announced that the game will no longer be arriving on June 21, but has been pushed back until August. Sean Murray, the creator of No Man’s Sky, released a statement on the Playstation blog.

“The game really has come together, and it’s such an incredible relief. 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.

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.”

So, there you have it. folks. The rumors about the delay for No Man’s Sky first surfaced on Kotaku a couple of days ago, and now they’ve been confirmed. So, the universe will need to wait a bit longer to be explored. We can only hope the extra wait will be worth it.
