No Man's Sky may get VR support and an Xbox One release in the near future. This is indicated by several references that were found in the game's executable.
In the executable of the PC version of No Man's Sky there are several functions and references that indicate that No Man's Sky developer Hello Games may be working on adding support for virtual reality glasses to the game.
The virtual reality functions can only be used in a developer edition of the game, which of course differs from the game's retail release.
Months before the release of the game Hello Games founder Sean Murray confirmed that the studio was looking into virtual reality support. Whether these functions are left over from earlier experimentation or if these are near complete still remains to be seen.
The name of the physics library most likely indicates which platforms the library was built for: PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The library's filename may indicate that the developer is already working on an Xbox One release of No Man's Sky. The release of the game on Xbox One has thus far not been confirmed.
