'No Man's Sky': Sean Murray Offers Development Update And Affirms The New Release Date

(Photo : Hello Games) "No Man's Sky" will now release in August, but the game's programmer is satisfied with the delay. In a new blog post, Sean Murray of Hello Games offered an encouraging development update to eager players. "No Man's Sky" comes to PS4 and PC on Aug. 9.

 "No Man's Sky" was absent from E3, but its programmer Sean Murray just posted a development update. In it, he stresses that progress is being made despite the new release date.

The news comes to Design & Trend via Murray's most recent blog on the game's official website. His words echo the previous delay announcement but with a slightly more promising tone.

"Every day, the game is getting better and better, and despite all the late nights (and early mornings) we're all working to get it finished and in your hands," he assures. "It's amazing to see it all coming together." It's then that he brings up the unfortunate reality of the game's delay to Aug. 9. "We've certainly heard a lot from some who decided to tell us all about that," Murray quips, but also discussed the fans' sentiment of encouragement too.

The dual nature of the post is largely suggestive of the fact that, shortly after "No Man's Sky's" delay, Sean and his team at Hello Games received death threats from a passionate few that were anticipating an earlier launch. It's worth noting, however, that "No Man's Sky" truly is a project unlike any other. A team of about 10 developers has been charged with the task of creating a universe of 18 quintillion planet-sized planets. It's a job that, Murray says, "hasn't been attempted before." That prospect puts his workers "under an intense amount of expectation."

Despite these shortcomings, it's confirmed that "development is going genuinely well." "Every day I feel more sure [that the delay] was the right decision ... we get one shot to make this game and we can't mess it up."

"No Man's Sky" comes to PS4 and PC on Aug. 9. The known release date will almost assuredly be the final one. In lieu of the wait, Sony recently premiered new gameplay footage on the former target arrival of June 21.
