No Man's Sky confirmed for August release on PS4

No Man's Sky was initially slated for a June release date, but last week, the news broke that it would be delayed.

Over on the PlayStation blog, Hello Games' Sean Murray has since confirmed that this is indeed the case, saying that, "as we approached our final deadlines, we realized that some key moments needed extra polish to bring them up to our standards. I have had to make the tough choice to delay the game for a few weeks to allow us to deliver something special.

"After a short delay, No Man’s Sky will launch in North America on August 9, in Europe August 10, and in the UK August 12."

So that's an extra two months to get through your backlog, play the new Witcher 3 DLC , and just do a bit of general mooching about that constitutes every day life.
