No Man’s Sky was one of the most exciting titles we saw on show at E3 2014, with a procedurally generated universe focused on exploration.

However, a few of the sharper observers noticed that No Man’s Sky was only being discussed as a PS4 game, with no mention of the title’s availability on console or PC. Now, developers Hello Games have addressed this fact, discussing if and when No Man’s Sky might come to other platforms…

Speaking with press in a recent interview, Hello Games’ head Sean Murray confirmed that the studio was planning on a “console debut on PS4”. According to Murray, the small team at Hello Games is a small one keen to keep focus on what it wants to achieve with No Man’s Sky. The studio is reluctant to expand for risk of compromising the game, and therefore won’t be officially announcing other formats until it can be sure it has the resources.

However, this doesn’t mean that the game will remain a PS4 exclusive indefinitely. Murray said that a PC version was something the studio “really [wanted] to do” and that PS4 timed exclusivity still “leaves open a PC version” for consideration”. He added to this by stating that he wasn’t sure whether a PC version would have modding support or tools. He said the development focus was on features that support the game's central aim of exploring a vast and open universe. “That might inherently involve mods – we’ll know more as we continue making the game.”

If you missed No Man’s Sky’s crazy, exciting E3 2014 trailer, you can check it out here.

Is No Man’s Sky worth investing in a PS4 to play? Or will you wait to see if the title comes to PC later on?

it's a bit disappointing but understandable still.
indie devs need money, sony gives it to them, so they develop it exclusively on ps4 even if it's not the most logical platform to develop on (in comparison to pc)


very sad, such disappointment

You seriously have got to be F-ing kidding me. This is the only game I'm excited for right now and it might not even come to the PC? The PC was its original target platform. This makes me want to explode.
