In an interview with Edge Magazine, Hello Games announced that their planetary exploration title No Man’s Sky will be coming to the PC following its launch on the PlayStation 4.
No Man’s Sky made a huge splash during Sony’s E3 2014 press conference, as it stunned the crowd with an impressive gameplay trailer. During the conference, Sony announced that the title would hit the PlayStation 4 before any other platform. At the time, creator Sean Murray did not divulge what other consoles the title would eventually come to.
Speaking to Edge Magazine, Murray talked about why porting the title to the PC was always something the team had planned.
“I actually got in a bit of trouble for saying that we wanted the game to feel really ‘console-y. We’ve always had PC in mind but in my head [console-y] means solid framerate and immediate controls. I think a PC game can be ‘console-y’ and it’s intended as a compliment, but I get in trouble for saying it.”
Back when No Man’s Sky was first revealed at the VGX 2013 Awards Show, I kind of just assumed the title would be coming to the PC in some capacity. Not only because of the technical capabilities of a top of the line computer, but also because the space sim genre is almost synonymous with the platform for me. Regardless, I’m just happy to see an intriguing and original title reach a wider audience.
No Man’s Sky is currently without a release date, but we will continue bring you the latest news on the highly-anticipated title when it becomes available.
