You can actually play “No Man’s Sky” for the rest of your life. Even a lifetime isn’t enough to explore all the worlds in the game. According to Crossmap, “The upcoming ‘No Man’s Sky’ has a total of 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 or 18 quintillion worlds.”
And, yes, all the Worlds are different. Though the game has been delayed until next year, creator of “No Man’s Sky” Sean Murray hinted that the game will be made available on VR Head Gears.
Sources also suggest that the delay is related to Sony’s upcoming VR headgear, the Project Morpheus. When Gamesradar asked Sean if “No Man’s Sky” will be available in the upcoming VR headset, he stated “I don’t know what I’m allowed to say, it’s something we’re thinking about. Morpheus, Oculus Rift…”
“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 MNR Daily, “No Man’s Sky” is facing significant difficulties at this moment, this leads to complex issues being addressed thus they have to hold for a bit the release of the game. This is one of the most highly anticipated games and fans are not happy that the creators seem to have been stalling the release for quite a while now.
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 actually help in structuring it for the better.
