No Man’s Sky is set to release next week. Today, Hello Games’ Sean Murray took to Twitter to confirm reports that the PC version of the upcoming space exploration title has been delayed to release a few days after the PlayStation 4 version.
Hello Games has confirmed through Twitter that No Man’s Sky will release on August 12th for PC. Though the game’s main website has stated this fact for some time now, this is the first time that Sean Murray himself has confirmed that PC gamers will have to wait a few extra days in order to play the upcoming title. You can see Murray’s tweet below:
PC NMS release will now be global and will be August 12th worldwide. It's so important we get it right and make the best version we can

A few weeks ago it was announced that No Man’s Sky will not require PlayStation Plus to play. This could be due to the fact that the game is so large, there is a good chance that gamers will never run into another player throughout their play through, making the game a single-player experience for some. While PlayStation Plus is not required to play the space exploration title, players will need to be connected to the internet in order to register with the universal atlas, which is the shared knowledge pool of the universe.
No Man’s Sky will release for PlayStation 4 in North America on August 9th. The game will then release in Europe on August 10th. The PC version will then release worldwide on August 12th.
