"No Man's Sky" will be available on PC and PS4, based on the announcement made at the Paris Games late last year but Xbox gamers could get their own version of the game if talks between the developers and Microsoft pan out.
In an interview with the Inner Circle Xbox Director Chris Charla cited by the Australian News Network said that he would love to have the game on Xbox One. He said that they are open to negotiating with Hello Games on how to bring the game to their platform.
"When we talk to developers, we try to be really transparent," Charla said in the interview.
The game was originally set for release By October last year but met some unexpected delays due to technical glitches found on the PC version.
The game is originally packaged as a a timed exclusive with Sony's PS4.
According to game creator Sean Murray, the studio wants to really show how the game is different from other offerings in the market.
Speculations are rife that the game could be made available on Playstation's VR headset/ Project Morpheus gear, especially since there are also reports that the delay in the game release is intended to launch it together with the VR headset.
Murray hinted as much in an interview with Games Radar, he said, "I don't know what I'm allowed to say. It's something we're thinking about. Morpheus, Oculus... There's nothing more cool and sci-fi than VR and a big procedural universe. I think that, for the people who want to just explore, and even for the space combat and things like that, it would be a good fit. Let's put it that way."
According to its description, "No Man's Sky is a game about exploration and survival in an infinite procedurally generated galaxy."
Players are challenged to explore an infinite number of worlds and interact with creatures both friendly and antagonistic.
