Was tweet hacking or a deliberate admission?
It's what we all know - but it would be a surprisingly frank and rather sad admission from the developers - No Man's Sky was a mistake.
This was tweeted from the official Hello Games Twitter account this morning and was originally thought to be an outsider hacking the account.
Then suspicion centred on a "rogue employee" - an odd thing in such a small company, which employs not much over a dozen people.
However, as the day progressed, some media outlets received an email purportedly from lead developer Sean Murray, saying: “The tweet is from me, but somebody from the team took it down. We have not been coping well.”
Curiouser and curiouser still, later another alleged email from Murray said: "The tweet came from a disgruntled employee. We're currently trying to solve the issue internally."
The original tweet was of course deleted and another tweet from Murray said: "Server hacked."
Later on again, Murray tweeted to the Hello Games Twitter account asking them if they were "still hacked and stuff?"
To which this was the response: "100% not hacked anymore ... obviously those mails and that tweet were fake. Back to work."
Clearly something is up.
