Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky may support virtual reality headsets, according to comments made by the studio’s founder Sean Murray.
In the upcoming issue of Edge, Murray was asked about the possibility of No Man’s Sky supporting virtual reality headsets, specifically Project Morpheus. “I don’t know what I’m allowed to say,” he replied. “It's something we're thinking about. Morpheus, Oculus... There's nothing more cool and sci-fi than VR and a big procedural universe. I think that, for the people who want to just explore, and even for the space combat and things like that, it would be a good fit. Let's put it that way.”
While Murray was careful with his words, his tip-toeing around the question has us excited at the prospect of being able to play No Man’s Sky with a VR headset. We have a feeling in the coming months, Hello Games is going to have more to share regarding its game’s inevitable move to VR.

Currently, cockpits work well in VR and first person perspective walking does not. I would love for them to offer a VR mode but I wouldn't count on this being a fundamental part of the experience.
If we could just get a release date...
Makes sense! Even the on foot stuff looks deliberately slow paced and manageable with VR. They'd definitely have to do something about the 65 field of view though, yikes.
The question is which comes first? The Rift or the game?
