No Man’s Sky would possibly sooner or later “reveal itself to be all it can be”, says PlayStation exec

No Man’s Sky could but dwell as much as its promise.


No Man’s Sky has suffered an excessive amount of backlash since launch, because the completed expertise didn’t meet many gamers’ expectations. Maybe that can change sooner or later?

Speaking on Live with YouTube Gaming, by way of PC Gamer, Sony Interactive Entertainment worldwide studios chairman Shawn Layden mentioned improvement of No Man’s Sky continues and will sooner or later attain its full potential.

“Hello Games, Sean Murray and his team, had an incredible vision of what they were going to create. It was something that had never been done before. A very small team had a very huge ambition,” he mentioned of No Man’s Sky.

“They’re still working on it. They’re still updating it. They’re working on getting it closer to what their vision was. And perhaps over time, it’ll reveal itself to be all that it can be.”

Layden appeared pretty constructive about No Man’s Sky, commenting that Sony didn’t wish to drive builders down particular paths, however he did make just a few feedback which steered Hello Games bit off greater than it may chew.

“The games industry is where everybody has the courage to say yes. They want to try to realise their ambition. They want to try to make that vision. No one slinks away from a huge challenge,” he mentioned.

“And sometimes you just don’t get all the way there the first go,” he added.

No Man’s Sky has been patched a few occasions since launch, with replace 1.09 dropping in late September – about six weeks after launch. These patches have been largely targeted on bettering efficiency and fixing bugs and different points, however Hello Games said it would on to free No Man’s Sky content updates as soon as it has nailed the core expertise.

The developer then went painfully silent, and for some time everything we knew about No Man’s Sky came from one staffer. It wasn’t till the Hello Games Twitter and email servers were hacked that we obtained any official phrase on Murray and his staff.

At this stage we don’t know if Hello Games intends so as to add the things missing from No Man’s Sky at launch which prompted claims of false advertising, or whether or not it has different content material in thoughts.

Let’s hope the subsequent time No Man’s Sky information drops it’s as a result of Hello Games has a tasty replace for these gamers who’ve remained within the mission regardless of the drama.
