There is some bad news folks. The release of the highly anticipated game No Man’s Sky has again been delayed. The fans of the upcoming survivor game had already been waiting for its release since Q4 of 2015, but the release was delayed. The initial release was scheduled for Dec. 2015 has been pushed to June 26, 2016.

The longer we wait for No Man’s Sky, the greater the sentiment grows that the game might end up a disappointment. Writing for Forbes, Dave Thier speculates that the game might just end up this year’s biggest disappointment. Opinion pieces across the web have been suggesting the game might just end up a disappointing husk of what was originally revealed, such as at Gaming Respawn, Game Skinny, and iDigitalTimes.

No Man's Sky

Australia Network News has even said that the new release date might be too late for Hello Games as it won’t be able to convince fans of a  unique gameplay experience.

However, a few sources have speculated that the indie studio intentionally cancelled its official December 15 launch because it wanted the game to be played on Virtual Reality consoles. But we don’t have any confirmation on this from the British video game developer.

Sony might also consider making the game playable online without its PSN subscription free. Other rumours suggest that the game might have been delayed to become a launch title for PlayStation VR.

Though developers are very tight lipped about this but Sean Murray of No Man’s Sky said, “I don’t know what I’m allowed to say, it’s something we’re thinking about. Morpheus, Oculus…” He added, “There’s nothing more cool and sci-fi than VR and a big procedural universe, I think that, for the people who want to just explore, and even for the space combat and things like that, it would be a good fit. Let’s put it that way.”

There are also reports suggesting that Microsoft is also looking forward to the release of No Man’s Sky on Xbox One. The Xbox director, Chris Charla even showed his willingness to negotiate with Hello Games. He said that they are “willing to find a middle ground” with the developers. Nothing has yet been officially revealed by Hello Games, and it seems they are keeping their cards close.

We can only hope that the game doesn’t get delayed more and would provide a good gaming experience to fans when it releases. Stay tuned till then and do leave your comments in the box below.

    If it only does exactly what’s already been demoed I will still be very, very happy.

  • thowedthanka

    Microsoft’s “middle ground” is forfeiture of your soul.

  • carlotta

    This really stabbed my hype really good…i don’t think i care about no man’s sky anymore

  • Justin

    lol are these retards serious? this has been news for months that it will come out june, this isn’t “news” lol so sad how these unheard of websites go for click bait. here i was thinking it was delayed from the june date futher. but nope this website is just months behind

  • Sam Swanson

    This really isn’t news, and this whole article is very misleading. There was never an official release date in 2015, only a vague statement about releasing sometime in 2015. The game needed more work, so they set an actual release data for June of 2016. This happened back in November- this is by no means recent news.

    Please stop making articles about the release date being delayed- it’s just clickbait.

  • Mirimon

    It is far more likely they will lose interest in your journalism, or rather the lack thereof, than in the game. Have you ever really taken a single course or studied journalism at all?

  • mosannam9696

    This is one of the worst articles I’ve ever read. First off, the game never had a release date, second off it still doesn’t. We have month hopefully and that’s about it. Third, if it comes to xbox it’ll be a WHILE before then. Fourth… ugh, you know what? Never mind. Just, everything you said is crap.

  • Donovan Tull

    I doubt people will lose interest in this one anytime soon.

    • Salmando (a.k.a ‘Bleh’)

      I lost interest in it a while ago. Games should never be revealed years before they are released. I still want the game – but it’s likely i won’t even notice when it gets released anymore.

        95% of games are revealed years before release.

        It’s an unfortunate biproduct of the market these days. Years ago we wouldn’t know about games until the full force marketing campaign that started a few months before release. Now there’s information leaks and desperate developers and early access and beta. It’s all resulted in games being announced LONG before they should be. Look at Fallout 4, officially announced the same year it was released, and it did very well for itself, even if later reviews said it really wasn’t as great as everyone said.

        • Salmando (a.k.a ‘Bleh’)

          Fallout 4 is shit. I’ve tried to love it, but it’s a hollow turd of a game. Deep down i knew it.

      • James Meyer

        Actually that’s the way games should be done. Gives you plenty of time to make sure its something you want to buy. Many triple A games needed to be worked on for years, yet they were worked on for less time than the timeline from announcement to release. Dont give corps like EA too much space to space to maneuver. They’ll use it to get you from behind!

      Its a walking simulator essentially , Noting that interesting . The PR machinery at sony greatly propagated this game , If you like such games , Check planet nomads out , It has most of the things NMS claims to have and has actual crafting and survival , its on kick start right now as we speak

      • davijoh723

        Thanks for the tip, Planet Nomads looks like a great game also, and very similar concept. I’ll have to keep my eye on that one now too! I don’t think it’s as grand a scale as No Man’s Sky intends to be, but the graphics look a little nicer in the demo footage, and it sounds like it may be a little more interactive than NMS too. Both will have their merits I’m sure, and I’m excited to see games like this come to life with VR in the not-too-distant future.

        Nothing on kickstarter even touches no man’s sky, and you know it.
        Call me when some guy on kickstarter creates an infinite universe.

      • JoeD

        I don’t think you have any clue either what a walking simulator is or what NMS is. Last time I checked walking simulators don’t have spaceship battles.

  • dsp4

    What kind of shoddy article is this? First you are nearly 4 months late on the news (the delay was announced back in October 2015), then you refer to “virtual reality consoles” which is not a thing.

    Don’t let that discourage you from writing though Abhishek. Take a look at the leading gaming blogs (Kotaku, Polygon, Destructoid), and try to learn from their style. Make sure you are rigorously researching what you write about, respect the reader (especially their intelligence and their time) and you’ll be writing good articles in no time.

  • Ken Lund
