Trademark dispute with Sky broadcasting sought name change for No Man’s Sky

Did you think that the highly anticipated, procedurally generated space exploration game No Man's Sky was in any way related to British telecommunications and broadcasting giant Sky?

But it apparently took the legal system three years to come to the same conclusion.

That's according to Sean Murray, managing director of No Man's Sky maker Hello Games.

"On the plus side perhaps this is the real reason Skynet never happened..." he joked

Sky did indeed go after Microsoft's Skydrive back in 2014, forcing an abrupt name change from the massive company.

A European court eventually agreed with that argument.

If it is, though, then Sky Broadcasting owes us roughly six weeks of freeform space exploration!
