We can now confirm that Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky will now release on August 9th. The new release date can now be found on the games official page on Sony’s website. The leak was rumoured earlier in the week via in-store communication sent from Sony to US retailer Gamestop.
Whilst it’s disappointing, it’s important to remember that Hello Games is only a tiny team, and the idea of No Man’s Sky was always going to be an ambitiously difficult one to pull off. Lets just hope that the delay allows them to create a masterpiece.
The game really has come together, and it’s such an incredible relief. As we sit an play it now, and as I watch playtesters every day, I can finally let myself get excited. We’re actually doing this.
