When No Man’s Sky launched in 2016, the game’s player base quickly discovered it was missing multiple features, with the most notable omission being multiplayer. Players even tried to meet up in the game and weren’t able to see each other. Sean Murray, the founder of the indie studio Hello Games, received a lot of hate for misleading players – to the point the studio had to maintain regular contact with Scotland Yard due to constant threats from angry individuals.
Since this horrific launch, the developer has made it up to the game’s community by providing No Man’s Sky with ongoing support and content updates. This action-adventure survival game has even built up a cult following over the years. With everything looking much brighter for this space exploration title, the question is – will it be ported to the Nintendo Switch? Murray was asked this exact question by Game Informer recently. Here’s what he had to say:
I love the Switch. We’re obviously very focused on what we’re doing right now, but we have done a lot of work for PSVR to optimize the game. So I’d be interested to see what’s possible. But at the moment, we’re just very focused on what we’re doing right now.
In case you’re wondering, the current focus is on No Man’s Sky Beyond – a large and entirely free update adding full VR support, online multiplayer for 16-32 players and other heavily requested features such as the ability to ride animals.
