No Man's Sky Dev Talks PC Delay, Teases Unannounced Game
Hello Games wants to be the Johnny Depp of video games.
With the release of highly anticipated space exploration game No Man's Sky just hours away, Sean Murray of developer Hello Games today participated in a Reddit AMA. He talked about a lot, but two big points were the PC version delay and word that the UK studio is already working on something new.
On the subject of the PC version delay (it's coming on August 12, while the PlayStation 4 edition is out on August 9), Murray said "there's no conspiracy."
"The reality is that we're still here working on it right now," he said (via DualShockers). "There's no conspiracy, we're just racing to get all the extra options and stuff we want. PS4 comes out tomorrow and we'll just try to pretend it's a normal work day! Best guess right now is 6 PM GMT on Friday, but we'll keep you up to date as we get closer."
As for the new game, Murray was asked if he could see Hello Games expanding to become a multi-game studio. He said you can expect the team to support No Man's Sky after release, but the team is also thinking about new stuff.
"There are other ideas we've got rattling around in our heads too," he said. "I think video games is just such a largely unexplored field. There's very few studios that pull off the two game thing, but supporting one game and then kicking off something new--that's doable right?
"Sh*t, I just remembered, we've got another thing we're already working on that's unannounced. It's a small experiment, but hopefully you all might like it. Maybe we can be the Johnny Depp of studios--do a mixture of big stuff and indie stuff?"
