UPDATE: After days of speculation, Sony and Sean himself confirmed the delay.
Release date: 9th August, 2016.
Though it’s a tough news, remember – the delay happened because it was needed. There’s nothing more to it. Don’t cry about it… No Man’s Cry.
Kotaku and No Man’s Sky has been in the talk recently because of their article telling people that the game is getting delayed.
They aren’t exactly wrong but the delay is only for 3 days for the US version, to match the release date for UK. Information posted by Reddit user redditratman suggests that the game has been delayed from 21 July to 24th July. This information came from the marketing kit he received at his work – EB Games in Quebec.
