PlayStation 4 players better be fine with sharing their airspace, because those on PC will also have a chance to explore the procedurally generated lands of Hello Games' No Man's Sky. IGN reports that next month's issue of Edge Magazine contains a story in which a PC version of the game is officially confirmed, and that it'll come sometime after the PS4 timed-exclusive window is over.
No Man's Sky's managing director Sean Murray spoke of the two platforms by saying "I actually got in a bit of trouble for saying that we wanted the game to feel really console-y. We've always had PC in mind, but in my head (console-y) means solid frame-rate and immediate controls. I think a PC game can be 'console-y' and it's intended as a compliment, but I get in trouble for saying it."
While it feels like a PC version of the game was implied in the past, there's official word now. However, the duration of the exclusivity to PlayStation is still unknown. PC players would be wise to hope it's not long.
