Sean Murray of Hello Games has brought relieving news to the masses on Twitter last night, announcing that No Man’s Sky has gone gold. The exploration space adventure is due to dock on PlayStation 4 in August, and hype couldn’t reach a higher level.
Although the release date has slipped more than once, a determined release date of August 9th (10th in Europe) is now set in stone, and will no doubt bring hundreds of hours of adventuring to excited fans across the world. No Man’s Sky puts you in control of a small spaceship, and as the pilot, you can fly to any galaxy, star system and planet, landing to discover new gear, discover new life and new civilisations, and spout more Star Trek quotes!
It's happened. No Man's Sky just went gold. I'm so incredibly proud of this tiny team. 4 years of emotions pic.twitter.com/YJoI6JVgxq

The last official update from Sean Murray came on June 24th when he wrote on the game’s website, “I’ve said it before, but No Man’s Sky is the hardest thing I’ve ever worked on. It’s even bigger than you can imagine. This is a type of game that hasn’t been attempted before, by a smaller team than anyone would expect, under an intense amount of expectation.
And despite all of that, development is genuinely going well. This is the hardest working, most talented team I’ve ever worked with, and I’m so proud of what we’re doing. For all our sakes though, we get one shot to make this game and we can’t mess it up.“
