Our small team is working our socks off on the future of No Man’s Sky, but we wanted to share some news from behind the scenes.
Our upcoming update will be called No Man’s Sky NEXT, coming Summer 2018.
Really thanks to the amazing community, each update for No Man’s Sky has been more successful than the last. Atlas Rises, our most recent update, was especially so. That represented a real inflection point in the legacy of our game. This team has never stopped running at sprint pace over the last few years, so perhaps it would have been tempting to stop there. Surprisingly though it had the opposite effect on us, and it emboldened us all to go further and faster.
We called our upcoming update “NEXT”, because it’s an important next step on a longer journey for us and the community. It will be our biggest update so far, and something we’ve been working ridiculously hard on. This will be free to existing players, and we’ll continue to support No Man’s Sky in this way for the foreseeable future.
No Man’s Sky is also coming to Xbox One, which has long been hotly requested by patient Xbox fans. The Xbox version will come with Foundation, Pathfinder, Atlas Rises and NEXT from day-one, in 4K and HDR for Xbox One X. We are also bringing No Man’s Sky to WeGame, the Tencent Chinese platform. Since Atlas Rises, China is now our second biggest region for players, and we are delighted to be able to support our Chinese players further.
We know that there is a lot of hunger out there for news and updates on No Man’s Sky. We appreciate your patience, and we promise we are working hard to reward it.
Thank you so much,
