Soon after Hello Games revealed their gorgeous and crazily ambitious No Man’s Sky, it was promptly confirmed to be only coming to Playstation 4.
Despite the console being the only confirmed platform, we had no confirmation of the game being exclusive to that platform. Now, via Edge Magazine, we’ve learned that it’s in fact a timed exclusive on Playstation 4.
Hello Games managing director Sean Murray confirmed the game’s PC availability:
“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 frame rate 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 is set for a 2015 launch.
