After almost 10 million years in development, “loads of death threats“, and at least one legal drama, No Man’s Sky is off to the printers, ahead of its launch next month. Now the team at Hello Games can get busy working on the inevitable day one update, because I bet somebody at the studio has just realised they forgot to put in the planets or something.
The news comes via studio boss Sean Murray, who posted a photo of a lot of crunch-time beards on Twitter.
It’s happened. No Man’s Sky just went gold. I’m so incredibly proud of this tiny team. 4 years of emotions pic.twitter.com/YJoI6JVgxq

No Man’s Sky is out on PS4 and PC on 9 August. In the meantime, though, you can read all about that time I got killed by security bots.
