Microsoft’s former Canadian Xbox community manager, Raj Patel, has shared his view on PS4/PC title ‘No Man's Sky’, and he clearly isn’t too excited.

No Man's Sky

No Man’s Sky is a sci-fi title set in “an infinite procedurally generated galaxy”. At least, that’s how developer Hello Games describes its upcoming science fiction game.

No Man's Sky is a science-fiction game about exploration and survival in an infinite procedurally generated universe.

While many are truly hyped for the game, this doesn’t seem to  be the case for Xbox’s former Canadian community manager. Patel, who is now marketing manager at Icejam Games, took to Twitter to share that, from what he has seen so far, the game already looks “stale”. According Patel, he has seen every gameplay image of the game, but they all look like they could take place on the same planet. So much for an ‘infinite universe’, reads Patel’s tweet.

The ex Xbox community manager adds that the game does have potential, but he hasn’t seen the fun, yet. Please note that Patel only commented on things that have been publicly shown.

When linked to a Kotaku article about the game, Patel replied that he still didn’t see the ‘infinite’ part of the title.

Patel adds that he hopes that there’s more to the game that has been shown so far.

The release date for the long awaited game from Hello Games was announced last week, alongside the game’s minimum PC requirements.

No Man’s Sky will be releasing on June 21, 2016. The sci-fi adventure survival will be released in Europe a day later, while the gamers in the UK will have to wait till the 24th of June. For more info on No Man’s Sky, check out the game’s official website right here.
