It seems that Hello Games is having a tough week. The makers of one of this year's most anticipated games, "No Man's Sky," found themselves hacked on social media. As Hello Games hacked, the hacker called the game a "mistake." Does this mean that the studio may not consider a VR future for the game?

Hello Games has been the subject of controversy this week when reports surfaced that their offices have been abandoned. Many jumped to the conclusion that the studio has given up on "No Man's Sky" because of its negative reviews. Adding fuel to the fire yesterday was when Hello Games was hacked on Twitter. According to Gamespot, fans noticed an anomaly when a tweet saying "'No Man's Sky' was a mistake" was sent out.

The tweet from a hacked Hello Games was published via LinkedIn, which does not require a two-step authorization. Sean Murray claimed that the tweet from their studio that claims the game a "mistake" were created by the hacker. The tweet was soon deleted, and the account was set to private. Murray took to Twitter to say that it wasn't just the Twitter account that was hacked, but their servers as well. He did keep mum on a VR future for the game, though.

"No Man's Sky" was most likely called a "mistake" by the hacker mostly due to the overwhelmingly negative reviews the game received since it was released in August. According to Cinemablend, the hack was performed by a "disgruntled employee." This said employee also sent out emails with the same message, calling "No Man's Sky" a "mistake." It also has been said that Sony was being pushy about releasing it, giving the small development team a little amount of time to make it even better.

It seems that the issue has been resolved and that Hello Games has taken back control of their servers and social media accounts. Murray took to Twitter to confirm this, citing that the team is heading back to work on "No Man's Sky." Does this mean they are pushing through with a VR future for the game? Some fans have been anticipating more improvements to the game, and a VR future would definitely be something the studio should consider. Keep checking back for the latest updates on "No Man's Sky."
