No Man’s Sky release date confirmed: 22nd June 2016
PlayStation Blog Wrote:Pre-orders for retail, limited and digital editions open today
Hi everyone. First off, the big news: we’re very excited to announce that No Man’s Sky launches in Europe on 22nd June 2016 (24th June in the UK). Players will be able to start exploring Hello Games‘ procedurally generated universe and claiming their discoveries from then on.
The second piece of news is that there WILL be a Blu-ray version of No Man’s Sky hitting shops near you. We know some people have guessed at this already, but we’re pleased to be able to officially confirm it.
In the background, Sean Murray has been working with Dave Gibbons (co-creator of Watchmen and Kingsman), James Swallow (Mass Effect, Star Wars, Deus Ex writer) and famous sci-fi book cover artist Angus McKie to create a comic book sharing some of the lore of the game. We all thought it would be cool to include this along with a gorgeous art book from the game, a SteelBook with unique artwork of the Atlas, and a dynamic theme by Mr Div (well-known 3D visual artist and creator of the No Man’s Sky logo) in the Limited Edition we’re also releasing.
Finally, we’re also opening up pre-orders today on both the physical editions and on the digital version. Please check with your local retailer for details on their exclusive pre-order offers.
We hope you’re looking forward to exploring No Man’s Sky as much as we are! Find out more here.

Goddam that leak about the price a couple of days ago was right though. Its a $100 indie game. Although I'd say Indie loosely as Sony hasve poured a lot of money into the development and marketing of this game.
Looks pretty dope though and it's getting a physical edition as well! Really hoping for VR support too, and the lead dev almost confirmed so here:
Although it sounds like it won't be handled by them, or that it will be patched in post launch. Will have to wait.
Anyone with a PS4/PC needs to get this game, its looking like its going to deliver on its bold claims. Good reading here btw:
