Over Christmas, Joe Danger and No Man’s Sky developer, Hello Games, became the unfortunate victims of the floods that were plaguing the UK. Though the company remained in high spirits, expensive equipment, computers, and the beloved Hello Games sofa was ruined which left the status of their upcoming game No Man’s Sky unknown. Thankfully however the company have assured us that the game won’t be delayed.
In an update on the developer’s website, studio boss Sean Murray said the floods and the current temporary studio situation won’t delay the release of No Man’s Sky. “Some of us are working from home. We’ve filled a couple of dumpsters with our old stuff, and built ourselves a make-shift post-apocalyptic set of workstations – but we’re back, full speed!” said Murray.
He continued to write about the status of No Man’s Sky and how they won’t let it get delayed, he also wrote: “At times recently I’ve wanted to be depressed, to wallow, but it’s impossible surrounded by this team. They are literally unstoppable. If we’ve lost some work, we’ll make up the time. We’ll steal dev-kits. We’ll work on a boat. Whatever it takes (not actual stealing… maybe :)”
In parting words Murray said “Watch this space and all that, we’ll share more soon.”
