Well, here's another game we'll have to wait for. Quoting the next issue of Edge Magazine, IGN reports that No Man's Sky will see a PC release—but only after a stint as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
It's not clear how long the PS4 exclusivity will last; IGN simply calls the game a "timed exclusive on Sony's latest console." Sean Murray, the game's Managing Director, also told IGN, "We've always had PC in mind." That means the game may not have too bad a case of consolitis, but it doesn't tell us much about release timing.
As we learned last year, No Man's Sky will allow players to explore a galaxy full of procedurally generated planets. The game looks like it has some serious potential, and I really dig the visual style. I just hope it won't be another one of those games that hits the PC a year late.
