Hackers hacked the Twitter, Linkedin and email accounts of No Man’s Sky developer Hello Games. A tweet went out earlier today “No Man’s Sky was a mistake” and was later deleted.
According to Kotaku “No, the tweet was not a hack, but rather a disgruntled employee. The email that we sent however was official.”
According to Polygon “The tweet is from me, but somebody from the team took it down. We have not been coping well.”
Later both (kotaku and polygon) received an email:
After some time, Murray tweeted from his account saying that there was a server hack.
After 6 hours the original tweet was released, and the Twitter account appears to be back under control.
No Man’s Sky was released in August of this year. Due to lot of bad/disappointing reviews, the game’s sub-reddit was shuttered after its moderator calling it a “hate filled wastehole of no actual discussion.”
