Did all the marketing alongside Sony and PlayStation 4 make you think that No Man’s Sky was going to be a PlayStation 4 exclusive forever? Well, you were wrong, and we have good news for the PC community. The game is also going to get a PC version!
The latest edition of Edge Magazine has a detailed story on the development of the game as well as the future plans of the developers. While all that is pretty lucrative in itself, the story also goes on to confirm that the game is scheduled to release to PC sometime later. The PS4 version is only a timed exclusive!
Sean Murray, who is the managing director for No Man’s Sky at Hello Games disclosed the news while discussing how the existence of a PC version changed the game:
I actually got in a bit of trouble for saying that we wanted the game to feel really console-y. 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.
So yeah, we are looking at a console-y PC version of No Man’s Sky once the timed exclusivity period of PlayStation 4 ends.
Up until now, no release date has been announced even for the PS4 version of the game which makes me think that the PC version isn’t coming in any time soon.
What are your impressions of No Man’s Sky from E3, did you like the way the game looks?
