"No Man's Sky" has since promised great things for itself as it moves towards success even further. However, a recent scenario may be putting the game in jeopardy-to the point of it potentially being fined for their offenses.

It is an apparent fact that "No Man's Sky" has promised a great deal of features to their fans. Sadly, not all of these features may be as expected, and worse, may not even meet those that the gamers have banked on.

According to I Tech Post, a claim of potentially incorrect advertisement and broadcasting for "No Man's Sky" has stirred complaints from many consumers. An investigation is being done by the U.K. Advertising Standards Authority or ASA, with regards to the attributes such as the sizes of the animals, graphic quality, the aiming mechanisms, the ship and sentinel well-being and more to note.

The ads made by "No Man's Sky" may also face some adversities thereof, as they may be indefinitely taken down car of the ASA. This will be under the condition that Hello Games will be found guilty with the attempt to somewhat mislead the customers through said method.

Due to these anomalies surrounding the proper promotion of "No Man's Sky," the question on how much the company should pay in order to alleviate the penalty bestowed upon them is still not responded to. Other games in the past have been given such sanctions, which typically does not exclude "No Man's Sky" for even a little bit.

Destructoid delivered that because of what is happening to "No Man's Sky," some critical reception have started to emerge from the concerned personalities. Such includes Geoff Keighley, who may think that "No Man's Sky" could be heading a downward slope from here on out.

Whatever decision or verdict is to be given to "No Man's Sky," fans of the game are urged to wait until further news comes forth. For now, the procedurally generated game may be standing on a thin line when it comes to surviving the strict, competitive gaming world.
