Sean Murray from Hello Games has given an update on the No Man’s Sky release date on the PlayStation Blog.

In the post he gives us the release date for No Mans Sky of August 10 in Europe, and August 12 in the UK, we’re not too sure about why we have to wait an additional 2 days, but I’m glad to hear that the game will be coming out sooner rather than later.

“After a short delay, No Man’s Sky will launch in Europe on 10th August in Europe, 12th August in the UK.”

– Sean Murray – PlayStation Blog

Many people are obviously disappointed by the news, but Sean’s explanation about his reasoning behind postponing the game are genuine;

“We realised that some key moments needed extra polish to bring them up to our standards.”

Sean and the rest of the Hello Games team don’t want to release a game they don’t think is totally up to their high standards, we get that. Think back to all the games that have been rush released, then had super massive patches applied almost instantly, sometimes rendering a game un-playable until after the update. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather play a game from the get go, rather than having to install a massive update before I can even start (looking at that download screen makes me sad).

Just before the news broke of No Man’s Sky being delayed, we wrote about what we’d love to see in the game, you can read all about what we think here.

The team at Hello Games is incredibly small for a game of this size, hype and ambition, we’re excited to play it in August, at the time of this post it’s only 73 sleeps (we’re in the UK).

I’m usually the person looking after the GeekPress Twitter, talking to all you lovely geeks, when I’m not doing that, you can probably find me squealing about a new Poogie outfit on Monster Hunter, or besting my scores on Theatrhythm, failing that, I’ll probably be napping, naps are the best.
