A BIG No Man’s Sky update could be announced by Hello Games’ founder Sean Murray later in October.
The backlash has gone as far as to include Sean Murray’s Hello Games studio being investigated by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA).
Several customers are said to have complained to the ASA about the promotional material for the PS4 and PC game.
The No Man’s Sky Steam Store page has come under fire for using screenshots that aren’t representative of the final release.
While this is an ongoing event currently unfolding around the game, there is the possibility that more could be released about the game’s future from Murray himself.
LIVE with YouTube Gaming host Geoff Keighley gave his thoughts on the project in the latest episode, touching upon his own involvement and how the future might be shaped.
Calling No Man’s Sky a stunning achievement for such a small team could finish and ship, but ultimately repetitive and unfinished.
“Games are crafted by skilled storytellers and big teams, math cannot always create meaning,” Keightley comments.
“I had many strong discussions with Sean and the team as they led up to launch, I disagreed with them charging $60 and putting it in a box, when what I think they should have done was put it out as an early access game.
“They should have let people play it and build it over time with the team and community, sort of like what we are trying to do with this show…
“I finally reconnected with Sean several weeks ago on email and he did say that they were working hard on updates and that he is open to coming on this show later in October to talk more about what happened, so I hoped that will happen.”
So could we get a big No Man’s Sky update in October from Sean Murray himself? The Hello Games founder has been quiet on social media since the game launched, and there would certainly be some questions to be answered from fans.
The studio did return to Twitter recently, pointing fans towards an older blog post that outlines some of the changes that have been made to the game and team since launch.
One tweet had a link to update 1.09 patch notes, while the other tweet linked to a blog post that reiterates plans to add free DLC to the space exploration game.
