No Man’s Sky Developer’s Insurance Won’t Cover Damages to Their Studio

no man's sky ss 1

In an extremely unfortunate turn of events, the studio behind the incredibly promising No Man’s Sky, Hello Games, had their entire development studio flooded and mostly, if not entirely destroyed.

The biggest question on their minds was if their insurance covered such a catastrophic event, and after finding out the verdict, they posted their findings on twitter:

Sadly, it seems that their insurance policy had small print that excluded them from coverage if their studio was within the limits of a flood risk zone.

On the bright side, now that they don’t have an insurance claim to worry about, they can just re-enter their destroyed studio and start assessing the damages and start rebuilding their studio:

While the current status of No Man’s Sky (and possible other works in progress) is not known, Hello Games clearly have a lot of extra work on their hands as they attempt to salvage anything usable, and move on with their development.

We extend out our sincerest wishes to everyone at Hello Games – stay strong and keep working on fantastic games!
