Apparently the game is delayed for a few more months, according to the innernetwebz: http://kotaku.com/sources-no-mans-sky-delayed-1778797365

I welcome any polishing. Besides, my gaming budget is stretched thin with other recent releases.
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

I don't envy the developers on this one. I think they are in a really tough spot. The hype train has been building steam for almost three years. That's a long time...most fans have VERY high expectations for what this game is supposed to deliver, without really knowing what the developers have in mind to deliver. I'm pretty sure the game will be interesting, but I'm expecting it to fall somewhat short of current expectations.

All the more reason not to pre-order games a year before their supposed release date.

No Man’s Sky will launch in North America on August 9, in Europe August 10, and in the UK August 12 (with luck).

Wow....saw this at another site, but didn't realize the passion for this game...if this is real and not some kind of publicity thing, disgusting that people have resorted to death threats to the developers and physical harm to journalists covering the delay.....its just a game.

People are really losing touch with reality...

That being said, I don't understand why they went public with the June release date in the first place. It's not like it's been some long standing date. They only went public with it about a month or two ago. They took a great risk with going public with the date. They know how wild people are for this game. If they don't deliver, they will never be able to live this one down.

They probably discovered a couple of important bugs they feel confident they can quash now, rather than having to roll out a big patch in two months.


Or...

The distributer has some last minute marketing rationale and the contract rights to enforce it, while also having the developers legally bound not to talk about it.

The anonymity of the Internet drives all sorts of crazy and anti-social behavior.  You think anybody would post any of those things if their actual name and current town were required to post?

You can just google "Offensive comments to female sports journalists" if you want to watch a really powerful video on the topic...
