Sky and No Man’s Sky Legal Dispute See. The worlds of the games occasionally give us with some fantastic news: what about a TV provider that registers a common word Skys as his trademark and attempts to prevent others from using this word in your projects? No Man’s Skys has been in development for over three years and has been through a few postponements the producer of the game until he was threatened with death by some clueless fans in its evolution. What nobody knew (until now) was that there was a “secret” legal fight going on behind the scenes of the game.

Well, the fact is that the Hello Games won the cause, and the mark on the Man’s Sky is safe. If the game is good or not, we find out on day 9 of August, when the game released for PC and Playstation 4.
