no_man's_sky_delayA report from earlier this week hinted that the upcoming much-hyped about indie game No Man’s Sky had been delayed. The game was originally due for a release next month, but a report from Kotaku claims that the game has been pushed back to a July or August release, or at least that’s what their sources were told.

Turns out they were right because according to an updated listing on the PlayStation website, it now shows that the game will be released on the 9th of August, 2016. Unfortunately neither Sony nor Hello Games offered an explanation behind the delay, but as is usually the case in video game release delays, this is usually due to the need for extra polish to ensure a quality launch.

We guess if that is truly the case then we can’t really fault Sony nor Hello Games for that. After all we have seen games with disastrous launches after the publisher/developer had rushed the game out for the sake of releasing it, leading to a bad experience and a lot of apologies to the community.

That being said, No Man’s Sky has been in development for the past 3 years or so, meaning that if you were excited when it was first announced back in 2013, what’s another 2 more months of waiting, right?
