You didn’t think that No Man’s Sky, the seemingly limitless space exploration game from British indie Hello Games, was going to stay moored on the PlayStation 4 forever, did you? Despite being strongly associated with Sony’s next-gen system, the company’s director Sean Murray has hinted that the release will be free to fly elsewhere eventually. Quelle surprise.
The tidbit was revealed in the latest issue of EDGE magazine, in which the publication stressed that, as expected, the title will be a timed exclusive to PS4, and will end up on the PC eventually. “I actually got in a bit of trouble for saying that we wanted the game to feel really console-y," said Murray. "We've always had PC in mind, but in my head console-y means solid framerate and immediate controls."
The ambitious excursion was originally announced at the VGX Awards last year, where it generated some positive buzz among indie fans. However, anticipation for the game shot straight through the stratosphere in June, when the title was showcased during Sony’s E3 press conference. The pressure’s now on the teensy outfit to deliver.
