Speaking with Eurogamer while at this year’s Tokyo Game show, Sony Worldwide Studios President Shushei Yoshida, has given his verdict on where the No Man’s Sky‘ developer team went wrong with the game release. After noting that he enjoys the game but understands the frustrations of players given developer Sean Murray’s promises for No Man’s Sky, he told Eurogamer:
“I understand some of the criticisms especially Sean Murray is getting, because he sounded like he was promising more features in the game from day one.”
“It wasn’t a great PR strategy, because he didn’t have a PR person helping him, and in the end he is an indie developer. But he says their plan is to continue to develop No Man’s Sky features and such, and I’m looking forward to continuing to play the game.”
While some fans and critics are judging Yoshida’s statement as being dismissive of the hype it participated in for the game that was console exclusive to the PS4 Sony platform, making it a heavily featured property before it’s game release. Others are just wondering what comes next for owners of the game through digital release.
