No Man’s Sky went darkish a while in the past, however followers checking in have acquired assurances that each one is nicely.
No Man’s Sky developer Hello Games remains to be engaged on promised patches, regardless of radio silence on social channels.
In a tweet noticed by PlayStation Lifestyle, audio chief Paul Weir responded to a query about No Man’s Sky’s standing by saying that “Sean is fine and we’re all busy on the next patch”.
Weir politely declined to remark additional on the No Man’s Sky and Hello Games state of affairs as that’s not his job; the way in which the video games trade works it’s a nice shock that he’s capable of give us this little bit of reassurance in any respect (please don’t go trouble him), not to mention reference new No Man’s Sky content as he did final month.
Reassurance is wanted: the official No Man’s Sky Twitter feed can be that of Hello Games founder Sean Murray, and has not tweeted for 2 months. The Hello Games Twitter has additionally slowed down significantly since launch, first saying the 1.09 patch and later referring again to a press release made in early September. In this period of fixed, direct communication with customers, it’s an eerie quiet.
It’s not laborious to think about why the indie may be feeling a bit shy abruptly; the launch of No Man’s Sky was dogged by criticism. It wasn’t simply backlash in opposition to a very divisive style of game, however allegations of false advertising related to missing features, that escalated into legalities.
Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida said Hello Games bungled its PR (though Sony stands by the product), and Geoff Keighley, who was instrumental in elevating No Man’s Sky into the massive time, has instructed maybe the team weren’t ready for it.
In any case, there are in actual fact a great deal of pleased and glad No Man’s Sky gamers on the market, and it’ll come as a aid to know that Murray is weathering the horrors of Internet outrage, and that work continues as regular behind the scenes. Games tradition, eh?
