No Man’s Sky Servers Being Wiped on August 7th
But only for online discoveries made.
Had a head start in No Man’s Sky, Hello Games’ first person universal exploration title? It won’t matter much on August 7th because servers will be wiped to prepare for launch.
This was announced by senior programmer Harry Dunholm who noted on Twitter that, “Servers are being wiped on Sunday.”
Your saved games won’t be affected but any planets you happened to discover during your time with a pre-launch copy will be wiped from Hello Games’ online registry. So if you discovered something cool, then rejoice! It’ll be gone tomorrow.
No Man’s Sky will be out for PS4 on August 9th but creator Sean Murray confirmed that it would be releasing three days later for PC (following several rumours and reports of the same). The reasoning was that retail on PS4 dictated it shipped on time while some extra time could be spent on the PC version to ensure it’s perfect.
