The long awaited space travel adventure game, No Man’s Sky, has officially gone gold, according to Sean Murray, Hello Games’ founder.
Murray’s tweet, which announced the game’s completion, said “It’s happened. No Man’s Sky just went gold. I’m so incredibly proud of this team. 4 years of emotions.” Going gold means that the game is done and ready to be printed onto discs and sent to retailers. No Man’s Sky will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on August 9.

No Man’s Sky has had somewhat of a troubled development, but not for many of the normal reasons. While there have been delays that were due only to the game’s unfinished state, there was also a flooded office that the team had to deal with, as well as an absurd legal battle over the use of the word “Sky” in No Man’s Sky. Murray mentions an emotional journey in his tweet, but from the looks on the team’s faces, it seems it was all worth it.
