Between delayed releases that we reported in May, the office flooding, and three year legal battle to keep their name, No Man’s Sky, developed by Hello Games, has finally gone gold in completing their initial development.  When asked why they weren’t at E3, Managing Director Sean Murray responded with this tweet saying that the chose not to build the hype on something that wasn’t quite finished yet.

This seemed to pay off, as yesterday Murray released a photo of the team with what seems to be the first physical copy of the game.

Back in May, Murray had stated “Making this game game is the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life…”  It has certainly paid off, as the title is set to drop for PS4 and PC August 9th, August 10th in Europe, and August 12th in the UK.  Congratulations Hello Games, you deserve it.

About me: Christine "smollbirb" Marten is a recent college grad that has been playing video games since she was gifted with her first NES console in 1999. Known as LuxAterna on Steam, she started as a games journalist in 2012 and has been writing about games and the industry since. In college, she acted as the president/clubmother for the gaming club, and hosted her own gaming radio show called SoundWave Games. When she is not gaming she can be seen cosplaying at conventions, working with non-profits that fundraise through video games (like Extra Life and Child's Play), acting as community manager for The Senpai Project, playing League of Legends with friends, or serenading passerbyers with her violin skills on the streets of NYC. She will literally play anything that is thrown at her (but please don't throw to hard she is smoll). She enjoys indie games and horror games especially, and her favorite series of all times is Kingdom Hearts. Her third love, after video games and violin, is puns. Although it is a dangerous life she makes them whenever she hears the opportunity to do so. Christine hopes to bring her own spin on storytelling to the GAW community as she continues to seek out whatever the world has to offer!
