No Man’s Sky has been delayed

*UPDATE* Sony and developer Hello Games has confirmed that No Man’s Sky will now launch on August 12 for PS4.

“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,” said Hello Games founder Sean Murray on Playstation Blog.

“However, as we approached our final deadlines, we realised 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 Europe on 10th August in Europe, 12th August in the UK.”

Murray made no mention of the PC release, which was previously scheduled to launch alongside the PS4 version.

Original story follows:

Open-world space adventure No Man’s Sky may have been delayed, according to new sources at Kotaku.

Developed by small UK indie studio Hello Games, No Man’s Sky is currently set to launch on June 24, but may have been delayed.

Two individual sources at Kotaku have said that the game has been pushed back, possibly to July or August of 2016.

One such source is an employee at US retailer Gamestop, who claims to have received new marketing materials detailing the delay.

The retailer was informed to place a “Coming Soon” sticker on outdated marketing posters for No Man’s Sky until a new release date is confirmed.

Sony and Hello Games are yet to announce any kind of delay, so if true, we can expect an announcement in the coming days.
