Those eagerly awaiting No Man’s Sky must continue to eagerly await a bit longer, as the game’s current delayed release is August 9th in the US and August 10th in Europe. Managing director Sean Murray penned an update to the fans apologizing for the delay recently, noting that the title is the hardest job he’s yet had while also stating that failing to deliver the game in its best state is not an option:
This is the hardest working, most talented team I’ve ever worked with, and I’m so proud of what we’re doing. For all our sakes though, we get one shot to make this game and we can’t mess it up.
Murray goes on to thank players for their understanding the reasons behind the delay even as he apologizes for such a delay being necessary. The development is apparently still on-track and producing a better game, so while you’ll have to wait a bit longer to get the finished product in your hands, hopefully the end result will be better for the wait.
