The delay of No Man’s Sky was made official yesterday night, and will now release in North America on August 9th, in Europe August 10th. Today the game’s Director Sean Murray took to Twitter to explain what happened, apologize to the fans and thank them for the support.

Personally, I’m not bothered in the slightest by the delay. As usua, a rushed game is forever bad, but a delayed one has a better chance to turn out to be good.

No Man’s Sky has obviously been a labor of love for a small team that went through a lot of hardships, including the flooding of their offices that destroyed a lot of their work. A few more weeks are nothing compared to all the work that went into this game, and I’m happy to wait.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
