There are few things in this world that go together better than the idea of a space game and VR support. Since No Man's Sky was announced, gamers have been fascinated by the innovation and beauty of Hello Games' design. Seeing as the title will also be released on the PS4, they've also pondered the potential for futuristic possibilities.

Next year will see the launch of VR. We've no idea how these devices are going to sell, or which product will come out on top. Naturally, Sony have their own device that'll be compatible with the Playstation 4. But seeing as No Man's Sky has been delayed until Summer of 2016, a lot of us have considered the possibility of this highly anticipated title featuring VR support.

Will No Man's Sky Have VR Support On Release Date?

To many, it would seem crazy if Sony didn't consider the possibility of having No Man's Sky be compatible with Playstation VR. At the Game Awards, Hello Games were awarded with the Most Anticipated Game statue for their little indie title. No Man's Sky beat Uncharted 4, Quantum Break, Horizon Zero Dawn, and The Last Guardian - a seminal achievement considering the stature of some of these games and franchises.

It's clear that No Man's Sky is going to excel on its release date. Therefore, considering that this could be one of the most successful titles in 2016, how could you not want it to feature VR support?

VR is not a certainty. This new technology may fail when it's unleashed upon the public! In order to avoid such a calamity, or at least ensure that you sell a decent amount of units, you're going to need attractive titles linked to your device.

Imagine seeing one of the most anticipated titles of the year launch with VR support. Imagine how many people would be tempted to purchase Playstation VR if No Man's Sky was playable with it! It'd be the ultimate way to experience the game. Therefore, we can't help but wonder, are Hello Games working on it?

Hello Games is Growing

Sean Murray recently tweeted these images, demonstrating that Hello Games is becoming a successful little indie developer. Obviously Sean Murray is jesting when he tags the image with 'tripleA', but it's indicative of the developer's growth. Hello Games will be hiring new people, and are undoubtedly making more space to work on [No Man's Sky](tag:2684052).

What will this new office space be used for? Is it to work on VR support? Did Sean Murray simply feel like he needed a bigger office?!?! Let us know what you think in the comments below!
