While Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky was quite divisive upon its release, many still actively enjoy it on PC and PS4 to this day after various updates. Today, the game’s developers revealed that a new free update, called No Man’s Sky Next, would be releasing later this year; furthermore, this update will come alongside and Xbox One release of the game, which is being made with the help of 505 Games.
Unfortunately, Hello Games did not go into much detail about what will be included in the No Man’s Sky Next update. That being said, Sean Murray, Founder of Hello Games did comment the constant post-launch update process for No Man’s Sky:
“We are calling this No Man’s Sky Next because it is an important next step in a journey for No Man’s Sky, for Hello Games, and for our devoted community. Each update for No Man’s Sky has been more successful than the last, this was especially true of our last update Atlas Rises. It emboldens the team to push ourselves further. This journey is far from over, and it’s exciting to be working again on something you know will surprise people.”
The Xbox One version of the game, which will launch later this year, will have all of the content already present in the other versions of the game, including the No Man’s Sky Next update. This version of the game will also see a physical release, courtesy of 505 Games.
