Sean Murray of Hello Games announced on Twitter that, contrary to recent reports, the PC version of No Man's Sky will release on August 12 alongside the PS4 version.
"I really want to clarify our PC release date. It's something we're working extremely hard on," Murray tweeted. "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."
Originally, it looked like PS4 owners would get No Man's Sky on August 9, leaving PC owners to wait three agonizing days before charting their own course through the game's procedurally generated galaxy.
Of course, we're all behind that one guy who paid thousands of dollars for a leaked copy on eBay—and who already made it to the center of the galaxy, "beating" the game in so far as No Man's Sky can be beaten.
"There are reasons we have to be tight lipped at times. I'm sorry for the confusion caused," Murray concluded in a final tweet.
