Sean Murray revealed some interesting details on Twitter
Sony Corp.’s (NYSE:SNE) PlayStation 4 exclusive, No Man’s Sky has officially been delayed and the news came in after a few rumors suggesting the same.Fans who were waiting for the game have been left disappointed to say the very least, and looks like some of them have taken the delay a bit too seriously.
The game’s Director, Sean Murray, recently took to Twitter and informed the fans about the reasoning and logic behind No Man’s Sky’s delay. Mr. Murray explained that the decision was a tough one but had to be made in order to give everyone the game they had promised initially with the announcement. He said that they are working hard to meet everyone’s expectations and feel that the delay will help them polish and improve the game accordingly. Surprisingly, Mr. Murray also said in a tweet that he has received death threats on delaying the game and that “Hello Games now looks like the house from Home Alone”.
While delaying the game is a fairly standard procedure in the game development world today, death threats because of this are certainly not cool. I mean, I get it. You have been waiting for the game since a long time and have pre-ordered it so that you can play the game the moment it releases but c’mon, it’s not like your life depends on it. If it does, you need to get a proper life for once.
If you ask me, I am personally glad that Hello Games has delayed the game; let me tell you why. It is pretty much given that a game that is delayed is mostly better than a rushed product. Had the development team rushed to achieve the game’s original release date, we could possibly have had a buggy product at release with subsequent patches being rolled out later on. Always try to look at the bright side of things instead of sending death threats to the developers of the game. That is just retarded.
No Man’s Sky is set for release on August 9, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Corporation’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows PC.
