Hello Games delaying the No Man’s Sky release date was met by anger from fans, but developer Sean Murray has convinced fans that the August release should be the one to look forward to.
It was previously reported that an email from Sony PlayStation indicated another release date change and will be moved on or before December 31. But as of today, Murray?s assurance that the August release date being on track is still principal announcement to hold on to.
The game was also previously planned to release in both PS4 and PC this June but unexpected delays have pushed the date for August, according to the Verge. Murray said that the hold-up was because the game was apparently not up to their standards and that it needed more improvements before launching.
No Man?s Sky release date delay made fans furious?
Murray was also able to explain the reason behind the delay but a number of dedicated fans may have taken the extension of the release date the wrong way. Express reported that Murray confirmed a number of death threats he previously received on Twitter.
And even though irritated fans keep on plaguing Murray with displeasure about the late release, he never forgot to thank them for their continuing support.
?Thanks to everyone for being so supportive. Apologies to anyone who feels hurt by this. We?ll try to make it up to you with a good game,? he said in a statement, according to Express.
?I have received loads of death threats this week, but don?t worry, Hello Games now looks like the house from Home Alone.
?Tell me when it?s safe to remove the marbles and oil from the stairs. It?s getting really cumbersome, and I need the toilet,? Murray jokingly said.
