It's telling that EA's decision to pull out of Mass Effect Andromeda less than 6 months post release, and yet Hello Games continues to support No Man's Sky..
Hello Games continued support of No Man's Sky is one of those things that kind of baffles me. On one hand it's great they are still updating the game for the people that own it.
On a financial perspective it doesn't really seem to make much sense as there really won't be a tremendous amount of income derived from this.
Which leads me to believe this is either a.) a self-driven "passion project" style effort to complete the game as they had envisioned, b.) a completion of the contract they had with Sony in exchange for the PS4 exclusivity, or c.) an attempt to salvage their studios reputation for future releases.
Whichever the reason I sure am enjoying their updates :).
