Did you know that there was a legal battle over the name?
According to a tweet from Hello Games‘ Sean Murray, the name ‘No Man’s Sky’ was in danger all along despite that it is the most fitting name ever to the game. BSkyB corporation and Hello Games was fighting for 3 years over the name since BSkyB owns Sky TV. And it’s totally logical. It is the most accurate claim to make since we can ‘own’ words now.
Finally, Hello Games won the battle over the name and the game is now legally called as No Man’s Sky.
Yay! We finally settled with Sky (they own the word “Sky”). We can call our game No Man’s Sky. 3 years of secret stupid legal nonsense over
