After four long years, many delays, and the destruction of one development studio, Hello Games has announced via Twitter that their highlight anticipated title has gone gold. The post came from the founder of Hello Games, Sean Murray:
“It’s happened. No Man’s Sky just went gold. I’m so incredibly proud of this tiny team. 4 years of emotions.”
It truly has been a struggle to get the game made. From its small team making a vast universe, to unforeseen setbacks including a lawsuit with Sky TV over the use of the word “sky” in their video game. Regardless though, the game and the studio have made it through, and are set for their worldwide launch on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on August 9th.
