No Man's Sky

The second half of the year is going to be filled with plenty of very good video games, ranging from highly anticipated AAA titles and smaller, but no less interesting titles. Amazon UK customers, however, have a pretty good idea on which among these titles is their most anticipated for the remainder of 2016.

Amazon UK customers have been asked to vote for their most anticipated game of the year with their E3 2016 Gaming Bundle Prize Draw and it's been revealed today that the soon to be released space game No Man's Sky, currently in development by Hello Games, is customers' most anticipated 2016 video game. The game has been named ahead of other heavy hitters such as Battlefield 1, Final Fantasy XV, Mafia III, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Watch Dogs 2, proving that a unique concept can even rival with franchises that have been around for quite a long time. The list mysteriously also includes games not launching this year, like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mass Effect Andromeda and Ghost Recon Wildlands.

No Man's Sky was originally scheduled for a June 21st release, before getting delayed to early August on both PC and PlayStation 4. Some didn't take the delay too nicely, with Hello Games' Sean Murray receiving death threats following the delay's confirmation.

The universe of No Man’s Sky is incredibly vast. More than you can imagine. This is a type of game that hasn’t been attempted before, by a smaller team than anyone would expect, under an intense amount of expectation.

And despite all of that, development is genuinely going well. This is the hardest working, most talented team I’ve ever worked with, and I’m so proud of what we’re doing. For all our sakes though, we get one shot to make this game and we can’t mess it up.

To the loyal community who’s stuck by our side since the unveiling of No Man’s Sky years ago, we hope you’ll accept our sincere apology and I am humbly asking that you’ll still look forward to exploring our universe despite the slight delay.

No Man's Sky launches on PC and PlayStation 4 next month.
