'No Man's Sky' news: Game's development was almost stopped


Some players are excited to get their hands on “No Man’s Sky,” which will come out in a month. As the release of the game is fast approaching, IGN was able to interview the creator of the game, Sean Murray, in their segment called IGN Unfiltered. Murray shared some of his experiences while the game was being created.

Fans who have been waiting for the game might not have seen it come to life as Murray shared in the interview. At first, he was hesitant to push forward with the game since his friends did not respond well to it. This made Murray decide not to unveil the teaser trailer of “No Man’s Sky” at the VGX Awards 2013 even though he already had a slot. However, the event organizer, Geoff Keighley, thought otherwise and just showed the trailer instead.

When the teaser trailer was revealed at the VGX Awards 2013, the audience praised the game.

There was also another instance when Murray was discouraged from continuing the game. After the event where they showed the trailer, Hello Games was unfortunately flooded. The flood caused some serious damages to their work. Although they had backups, a lot of effort has been wasted. According to Game Spot, Murray also mentioned that if Hello Games did not show the trailer at VGX Awards, he could have given up on the project.

The team was starting to have doubts with the game and was wondering why it was still being developed. Surprisingly, the flood helped the team of 10 people to move forward with the project.

“No Man’s Sky” will be available for the PlayStation 4 and PC on June 21 in North America and on June 22 in Europe.
