We all know No Man's Sky was a massive letdown, but there has been a tweet from the official Twitter account of Hello Games, the developer of the game - and it seems to have stemmed from someone within the company. Hello Games tweeted:

First off, the tweet was sent through LinkedIn - but there were also two websites that said they had sources that told them a disgruntled employee was behind the tweet. Polygon said that they received an email from Sean Murray's account, which said: "The tweet is from me, but somebody from the team took it down. We have not been coping well".

Forbes also reached out to Hello Games, with a studio rep saying that a "disgruntled employee" sent the tweet, and that the developer was "currently trying to sort out the issue". Mashable was also contacted by Murray, where he said: "The tweet came from a disgruntled employee," Murray wrote in an email. "We're currently trying to solve the issue internally".

The official Hello Games Twitter account tweeted afterwards, in reply to Murray: "100% not hacked anymore... obviously those mails and that tweet were fake. Back to work".
