So while No Man's Sky's been mired in delay after delay, someone else swooped in and said "Fine, we'll make the same exact game." Novaquark took to the PC Gaming Show stage to announce Dual Universe, a space-lite game where you can seamlessly fly from planet to planet and construct cities to live in.
Also, it's a "single-shard universe," meaning everyone is in the same game at the same time—not a one-person universe like No Man's Sky. Impressive, if it's real. It's a ways off though, with the game not planned to even enter alpha until end of the year.
