Earlier today, on a post over at the PlayStation Blog, Sean Murray from Hello Games has confirmed its upcoming space-exploration title; No Man’s Sky, has been delayed to an August release, specifically in North America on August 9, in Europe August 10, and in the UK August 12.
“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,” said Murray.
Murray added: “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 despite all of that, development is genuinely going well. This is the hardest working, most talented team I’ve ever worked with, and I’m so proud of what we’re doing. For all our sakes though, we get one shot to make this game and we can’t mess it up.”
No Man’s Sky is set to release on August for the PlayStation 4 and PC.
