After a visit to Hello Games’ studio, some pictures have made their way onto the internet that seem to indicate that a PC port of No Man’s Sky is clearly in development.
The Verge made a visit to Hello Game’s small studio recently for a behind the scenes look at the development of the game and the studio itself. Included in the article is a wonderful photo gallery that gives fans an inside look at the goings on in the studio. While the gallery itself is cool as a whole, one picture stuck out to curious readers as something that needed a bit more investigation.
In the pictures below you can see the development board for No Man’s Sky. Zooming into the picture a little bit offers some interesting revelations about the ongoing development. On top of the function keys listed along the entire top of the board, “keyboard controls” and “SLI” support are both listed as upcoming development goals.
It’s highly possible that the function keys are simply internal development shortcuts, unless pressing f3 for “Deer” is a feature that will be prominently displayed in the game. What’s much more unlikely though is that they are adding keyboard controls for the PS4 version and SLI support for a console that doesn’t have SLI to begin with. It would seem likely that The Verge has inadvertently confirmed No Man’s Sky for the PC.
There’s currently no official announcement for a PC version of No Man’s Sky, so naturally this is all highly theoretical. You can learn more about No Man’s Sky at http://www.no-mans-sky.com/.
