Fans have been eagerly waiting for the release of “No Man’s Sky.” Even Playstation revealed the release date of the Sci-Fi game in June 2016 during the Paris Games Week, together with a new trailer.

However, new reports reveal that there are some problems with the game.

The videogame title that spans over 18 quintillion planets has been witnessing several technical problems, according to Ecumenical News.

“Laura Kate Dale of Destructoid UK went on to an episode of Podquisition to state that sources had informed her of several technical issues. These issues importantly kept the game from being demonstrated at an event in the UK recently.”

Even during the conference, the demo of the game was shown on a PC and not on Playstation which left many assuming that the game might not be suited for the console. The science-fiction game set in an infinite procedurally generated galaxy has been detailed to achieve life-like terrain using Math and the makers believe that there is more to it than just the set of algorithms designed to govern it.

Since the game obtained its concept from a procedurally generated offering, critics believe that technical problems were bound to crop up. Sources added that games generally go through a rigorous process of optimization for each platform and some issues are expected to come up during such process.

“No Man’s Sky” is a first of its kind and such technical issues will only help in structuring it for the better.

Sean Murray, during the Paris Games week, had talked about the possible release date and commented “The game, our ambition and some key developments have fallen into place. It’s incredibly hard work, but development is going really well.”

There was no official word on the technical problems from Sony or Hello Games for that matter. We have to wait and see whether these technical glitches would hamper the release of the game.
