No Man’s Sky Delayed Until August

After rumors about it all week, Sony Computer Entertainment has confirmed that its upcoming highly ambitious sci-fi game “No Man’s Sky” has been delayed by two months.

Originally slated for a late June release, it will now hit on August 9th. Director Sean Murray wrote on the PlayStation Blog: “As we approached our final deadlines, we realized 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.”

The game has famously been in development for years and held off for a long time even announcing a release date. The original June date was the first one they set, and with most games getting delayed at least once after setting a date – this comes as little surprise.
