A new screenshot of No Man's Sky released during E3 2015. Hello Games

Hello Games founder Sean Murray has announced that a release date for his team's ambitious space exploration game No Man's Sky will be revealed "soon" adding that he and his colleagues had wanted to reveal the news at E3.

Murray made the announcement during the PC Gaming Show, where he also revealed that the PC version of No Man's Sky will launch at the same time as the PS4 version. Some fans had worried that Sony's exclusivity deal might extend beyond the reach of consoles.

A new trailer was also shown off boasting the high praise from the likes of Time Magazine, GameSpot, Rock Paper Shotgun and Kotaku which has been lavished on the game since it was first announced at the tail end of 2013.

Murray was on stage at Sony's E3 press conference as well to explain and show off not just the enormous size of the game, but how it works and plays as well.

Sony sealed up an exclusivity deal at E3 last year following the incredible wave of buzz generated by No Man's Sky's announcement trailer six months prior. That buzz hasn't really died away, and the game remains one of the most anticipated by the gaming community.
