No Man’s Sky probably won’t arrive on Steam until Friday evening

It's finally here. In the US, anyway.

One of the most hyped and anticipated games of recent times releases on PS4 in the US today (August 9th). It arrives in the UK tomorrow (August 10th). But PC gamers will have to wait a few more days for their fix.

After a few changes and adjustments to its release date, No Man's Sky will be released on Steam this Friday (August 12th). But there's bad news those hoping to download the game from midnight on Thursday.

Hello Games boss Sean Murray has revealed via Reddit that the space adventure likely won't arrive until early evening on Friday.

The reality is that we're still here working on it right now,” he said of the PC version and complaints about its belated release. There's no conspiracy, we're just racing to get all the extra options and stuff we want. PS4 comes out tomorrow and we'll just try to pretend it's a normal work day! Best guess right now is 6pm GMT on Friday, but we'll keep you up to date as we get closer.”

6pm GMT is actually 7pm BST, remember.

I'll tell you a funny story about PC,” Murray continued. I was here late yesterday, and I had to take a break and do an interview with Playboy (!) - and the guy was like ‘what are you working on when you go back downstairs?' and I was like ‘compatibility for ATI OpenGL drivers', and he said ‘ummm.... could you make something up. That sounds pretty nerdy'. I always knew I wasn't Playboy article material.”
