'No Man's Sky' PC Release Date Delayed to August 12

Stop smirking, PS4 players.


On Friday, Sean Murray revealed on Twitter that the PC release date for his upcoming exploration title No Man’s Sky was pushed back to August 12, three days after its initially forecasted retail release.

For PC players, being American is no longer a consumer advantage; they’ll get their hands on No Man’s Sky the same day as the projected UK release.

Three days may not seem like a lot, but it’s a pretty rough break for PC players, especially in light of the console version’s release. Hell, you can already buy the PS4 version if you grease the right palm at Walmart.

The hype surrounding No Man’s Sky has hit epidemic proportions of late, and it doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon. Hello Games’ upcoming video game is one of those rare gems that has managed to earn the level of expectation surrounding it. Even the streams coming out days in advance of the game are laced with awe-filled descriptions of the procedurally-generated discoveries that define No Man’s Sky (including Inverse’s stream, below).

It’s going to be an excruciatingly long week for players forced to wait until Friday to get their hands in this year’s most anticipated video game. Not to worry, though, PC players; the kids on PS4 will be happy to supply you with tons of pictures and videos as they’re exploring the 18-quintillion-planet universe.
