Though the possibility of this break being in the release version of the AU patch has existed for some time now, as a developer with limited resources, I cannot take odd behavior in preview, insider, early builds seriously. With the limited resources (time) I have, theorizing and debugging the odd behaviours of a essentially "hackish" program within an operating system that is on its best days unpredictable is infeasible.
On Tuesday, August 9th at 8am - 12am EST, I will be live streaming the launch and first 4 hours of No Man's Sky. Join me for some morning beers as we talk shop, do some space pew pew and try our best to break the NMS servers. Ill be answering any question you may have about IM and its development as well as testing IM in NMS as we play the game with the best PC game controller there is, the Dualshock 4. If you have copies of the game be sure to join our steam group before the stream!
