If you follow Hello Games on Twitter and were scratching your head over a recent tweet, you’re not the only one.
Earlier this morning, a tweet posted on the Hello Games account said, simply, “No Man’s Sky was a mistake.”
It was quickly taken down, and the account locked, leading many to believe a meltdown of sorts had happened at the studio.
Some speculated the Twitter account was hacked, but a representative of the studio told Forbes that a “disgruntled employee” posted the tweet and they are in the process of getting it “sorted out.”
As Forbes notes, there are only 16 people employed at the studio, so it shouldn’t take much effort to find the culprit.
Then when Polygon reached out for comment, someone claiming to be Sean Murray, or at least using his email account, got back with the site. The person, again using Murray’s account, said: “The tweet is from me, but somebody from the team took it down. We have not been coping well.”
And the plot thickens even more. Sean Murray finally broke his two month silence on his Twitter account, saying the company servers were hacked:
Server hacked. We're binging Mr Robot Episodes as quickly as we can looking for answers. Ep05 is a cracker— Sean Murray (@NoMansSky) October 28, 2016
If anything was a mistake, it was using Linked In without 2FA.— Sean Murray (@NoMansSky) October 28, 2016
