"I think it's perfect fit for virtual reality," he said in a new interview with GameSpot.
When presented with the idea that No Man's Sky could be the game that sells PlayStation VR to PS4 owners, Murray said the ability to fully immerse yourself in galactic exploration was a childhood dream.
"I think that No Man's Sky, which is this infinite computer generated universe, and PlayStation VR, which is a headset that you put on and enter a VR space is like, it's like you've asked me when I was five what the future would look like."
Despite his enthusiasm for a VR version No Man's Sky, Murray stopped just short of announcing the game for Sony's headset.
"That's as far as I can comment," he said.
Murray expressed similar sentiments in July, 2015: "It's something we're thinking about," he said at the time. "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."
