No Man’s Sky is a Timed Exclusive on PS4, Coming to PC Later

no man's sky 08-01-14-1

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.

    No Man’s Sky started as PC game project, than Shahid approached them and asked for PS4 version…

    And pretty much everyone believed that it would be PS4 exclusive from that moment … I mean with all that help from SONY it was rather something… rational?

    But no… after all… it seems that Shahid failed once again… he helped them a lot to promote this game (E3 2014)… it would be safe to say that without that help No Man’s Sky would be just another indie game…

    and in return he gets only “time exclusive”… wow I can’t believe how incompetent guys from SCE are. Not only they are focusing too much on indies… but aslo they can’t encourage developers to release games as true exclusives?!

    Time exclusive… god sake… it is not funny anymore.
