No Man’s Sky PC version isn’t a certainty

During E3, Hello Games’ managing director Sean Murray sat down with Rock, Paper, Shotgun to discuss the company’s ambitious procedural space exploration sim, No Man’s Sky. The conversation inevitably turned toward the release schedule for the game, during which Murray confirmed that the game would debut on PS4, and that a PC release is not guaranteed.

“Basically we’re doing a console debut on PS4. That’s all we’re saying right now,” said Murray, “but that leaves open a PC version, which we really want to do.” RPS later sought clarification on the statement, learning that its vagueness stems from the fact that Hello Games is reluctant to increase the size of the team that it has purposely kept small. Plus, the company doesn’t want to announce anything until they are sure of it.

No Man’s Sky is scheduled to release in 2015. In the meantime, go and watch that incredible E3 2014 trailer again.

I wish developers could say “yes” or “no” and not “maybe”. “Yes” makes me happy. “No” upsets me but I get over it. Hell they could say “no” now and then turn around later when situations change and say “yes” and I’d still be ok with that. “Maybe” just pisses me off and makes me wish they were more decisive.

 

Well, there goes my interest in this game for the time being.

 

I wonder if Sony provided funding for it, and that’s the reason for platform exclusivity. (Or have they confirmed they’re funding and I missed them saying it?)

Same!

 

makena,

I’m not sure, though its stage presence at the Sony media briefing sure implies as much.

 

If anyone needed another example of XRebirth this would be it. Its another disaster waiting to happen.

More lies served fresh from E3.

I hear Divisions not doing so well either lol.

Meh, I’m happy either way.

With such a small team, the project is already very ambitious. To mix multi platform development in with this would be insane. This is a realistic stance for them at the moment.

 

This looked great in the videos – very pretty.
But I wasn’t overly sure about it the whole infinite exploration idea. I was waiting to see if there were more elements in the game before getting ready to throw my money into it. But No PC that is all I have so no good for me

I came across a Xeno Galaxies on Kickstarter. Shares some of No Man’s Sky’s exploration but also missions, trading, FPS, RPG, ship building.

If you are into the exploration and trading maybe it might be of interest. Super early development, so no where near as pretty/polished yet, but great direction of development.

It really could use some more love on KS though. :(

Where’s the lies about this?

Well the… the CORPORATIONS MAN! They sit up there in their ovary tower and they like, get all corporation-y.

 

zombywolf,

Bwahahaha ovary tower…you’ve got to watch those corporate egg heads don’t you?

 

jerichosainte,

whoa did you just apply common sense on the internet … Careful the pc master-race will be after you with their pitchforks and torches now.

zombywolf,

I need to stop playing games and check out this ovary tower…

 

Disappointed.

Not sure if being ridiculous about political correctness or personal computers.

 

caitsith01,

how often do you hear the term political correctness master race ? :P

 

The Glorious Political Correctness Gaming Master Race…doesn’t really have a nice ring to it.

Actually reminds me of a Chrome extension that takes the acronym IP and changes it to “Immense Penis.” It makes reading gaming company press releases so much more bearable.

 

vcatkiller,

We’re really excited to tell you all about our new immense penis.

 

spooler,

Yeah I always get a little nervous when a company bigwig shows his immense penis to the general public for the first time.
