'No Man's Sky' release date: Sean Murray gives update on development


While the much awaited and highly anticipated game “No Man’s Sky” was a no-show at the recently held Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016, game developer Hello Games offered a new update as to the game’s progress. Apparently, the developers chose to work harder on the game during that time, rather than taking the chance to further build up the currently strong hype for it by making a presentation at the event.

Hello Games founder Sean Murray recently addressed the reason as to why Hello Games, and “No Man’s Sky” in particular, was not present at the E3 event. When asked by a fans over at Twitter, Murray revealed that instead of showcasing something new at the event, the developers instead chose to stay at the work station and work hard on making more out of the game.

In a recent blog post, Murray also shared new details regarding the development of the game. Not pretending that everything is easy for them, Murray acknowledged the difficulty of making this game, as they are “working super, super hard” on the game, as he had put it, and that seeing everything they had worked for finally come together piece by piece is an “amazing” feeling.

“Every day, the game is getting better and better, and despite all the late nights (and early mornings) we’re all working to get it finished and in your hands, it’s amazing to see it all coming together,” Murray said.

Murray also took the chance to acknowledge his teammates who had been working on the game as ambitious as this, despite the fact that the team is small in number.

“This is the hardest working, most talented team I’ve ever worked with, and I’m so proud of what we’re doing. For all our sakes though, we get one shot to make this game and we can’t mess it up,” he added.

“No Man’s Sky” is set to release on Aug. 9 for North America and on Aug. 10 for the United Kingdom.
