…just one more mont…damn it.
Amidst rumours that ‘No Mans Sky’ has been delayed until July/August (although no official confirmation as of yet) was broke by Kotaku a few days ago, I realised I didn’t really care – I have time for more games.
Although, I am alone I think! Twitter erupted into a big pile of utter disappointment. Some people even going as far as saying that it killed the last of their hype for the game. Seeing as the game was unveiled almost three years ago I can see where they are coming from.
However, if they are taking this time to polish the game and make it better it is only a good thing in my eyes. I really really hope it isn’t because of a minor bug because in a game like No Mans Sky I can’t see what would be considered minor at all. Due to it’s procedurely generated worlds I would imagine any “small” big would introduce some pretty big problems.
I don’t think that is the issue though. It would take more than a month in my opinion to fix that – especially giving that the team at Hello Games is only 12 members or so strong. Maybe they are just taking their time and realise they won’t make their target of 4 weeks from now. Or…
Maybe Sony has asked them to postpone it? I am one of those that believes Sony was behind the delay that hit Uncharted 4. Originally it was supposed to realise more or less alongside the Ratchet and Clank reboot and if they sent out Uncharted 4 with that game it would have absolutely murdered it. The problem with this theory is I don’t see any other big releases at the end of June that Sony would be personally invested in so I doubt this is the case too.I am secretly hoping that if the ‘delay’ is actually a acceleration towards realise and they just say at the end of their E3 conference “AVAILABLE NOW!” Yeah…like that would ever happen!
Whatever the reason I have the utmost confidence it won’t be taking lightly by the guys at Hello Games and they just want the game to release in a finished state – exactly what us gamers want!
EDIT: Since the writing of this article, No Mans Sky has been confirmed to be delayed until August 9th US, 10th EU, 12th UK – source.
