The news isn’t overly surprising however as developer Hello Games have only ever said the PS4 exclusivity would be the game’s “console debut”, leading many people to correctly speculate for a long time that the game would make its way onto PC. The game is still a timed exclusive on the PS4 though, so don’t expect to see it release on the same day on PC.
“I actually got in a bit of trouble for saying that we wanted the game to feel really console-y,” says Sean Murray, No Man’s Sky managing director. “We’ve always had PC in mind but in my head (console-y) means solid framerate and immediate controls. I think a PC game can be ‘console-y’ and it’s intended as a compliment, but I get in trouble for saying it.”
No Man’s Sky doesn’t have a release date, but it’s a fantastic looking title. The player traverses a procedurally generated universe, where literally anything can happen. It’s one of my most anticipated titles!
