While even the most basic description of the game still sounds like a child’s wide-eyed impossible fantasy, it’s official: No Man’s Sky is complete. Founder of Hello Games, Sean Murray shared the news with a picture of him holding up the game’s disc.
Posting on Twitter he says, “It’s happened. No Man’s Sky just went gold. I’m so incredibly proud of this tiny team. 4 years of emotions.”
Sean Murray and the independent studio of Hello Games set out to make one of the most ambitious games the industry has ever seen. With a nearly infinite universe of procedurally generated planets, No Man’s Sky is an MMO, but warns players will rarely, if ever, see each other.
Originally meant to release back in June, the game was delayed until August 9. The fan excitement surrounding the title is so high, Murray actually received death threats when he announced the delay.
“As we approached our final deadlines, we realized that some key moments needed extra polish to bring them up to our standards, Murray explained. “I have had to make the tough choice to delay the game for a few weeks to allow us to deliver something special.”
No Man’s Sky will release on PS4 and PC August 9. As we finally get our hands on the game, keep an eye out for all our thoughts and impressions right here on Gamespresso.
