No Man's Sky is finally finished

The game hits retail in August

Development on No Man's Sky has finished. Hello Games founder Sean Murray confirmed in a tweet that the game, which hits PlayStation 4 and Windows PC on Aug. 9, has finally gone gold.

"It’s happened," he wrote. "No Man’s Sky just went gold. I’m so incredibly proud of this tiny team. [Four] years of emotions."

The announcement was anticipated by a cryptic tweet in which Murray claimed that "things were happening." Although some speculated that he was teasing a possible update on No Man’s Sky in virtual reality (or even another delay) seeing the disc in Murray’s hands confirms that the game’s long journey to print has ended.

No Man’s Sky was originally set to launch on June 21, but Hello Games delayed the adventure game at the end of May. It was a move that found Murray on the receiving end of death threats, he said.

Since it was first announced in 2013, No Man’s Sky has been highly anticipated by those intrigued by its procedurally generated universe. The game sees players traveling through space, fighting various lifeforms and exploring the farthest corners of the galaxy.
