According to developer Hello Games, No Man’s Sky will no launch in August for PlayStation 4 and Windows.
“I have had to make the tough choice to delay the game for a few weeks to allow us to deliver something special.
“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.”
-Sean Murray, Hello Games founder
The game is now scheduled to arrive on Aug. 9 in North America, Aug. 10 in Europe, and Aug. 12 in the U.K.
