No Man’s Sky Will Have the “Full Weight of PlayStation Behind It”


Speaking with MCV UK recently, PlayStation UK boss Fergal Gara hinted at Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky releasing on PlayStation 4 during Holiday 2015.

Elsewhere in the interview, Gara revealed that they’re putting the full weight of PlayStation behind No Man’s Sky, essentially dealing with it as they would any other first-party title (previously, this was done with Destiny):

No Man’s Sky has been treated as if it was from one of our internal studios. We have been working very closely with the developers and bringing it into our release program as if we had made it. We are not going to treat it any differently and we are going to put the full weight of PlayStation behind it. If it all comes together as well as expected, it will be treated like a first-party release; it is not a self-published small indie title on the platform.

Last year, VBlank Entertainment released a limited-run retail version of their indie title Retro City Rampage on PS4, which turned out to be a big success. For other indie titles, including No Man’s Sky, Gara says, “It is entirely possible that we will release some of these games together, digitally and physically, or one after another, but it will be decided on a title-by-title basis.”

Do you think we’ll see Sean Murray on-stage at Sony’s E3 2015 press conference?
