Hello games founder Sean Murray confirmed today via Twitter that No Man's Sky will be coming to PC August 12th.
PC NMS release will now be global and will be August 12th worldwide. It's so important we get it right and make the best version we can— Sean Murray (@NoMansSky) August 5, 2016
The PC version will come out 3 days after the console release to make sure it's the best version it can be for the platform. I'm sure many PC players will agree that's for the best given the bad ports they've suffered through over the years.
