No Man's Sky, a highly anticipated adventure video game, was supposed to be released in late June. That's no longer happening.
So what did some "fans" of the game do when they found out this week that the release was being delayed until August so the creators could polish up some imperfect parts? Threatened the game's creator, Sean Murray, of course.
Thanks to everyone for being so supportive. Apologies to anyone who feels hurt by this. We'll try make it up to you with a good game— Sean Murray (@NoMansSky) May 28, 2016
I have received loads of death threats this week, but don't worry, Hello Games now looks like the house from Home Alone #pillowfort— Sean Murray (@NoMansSky) May 28, 2016
Murray received many responses from enthusiasts who said, essentially, that they'd rather the game be late and great than on time and not.
But there were also glimpses into the mind of folks who aren't so rational.
What a world.
