No Man's Sky NEXT Tomorrow; Free Season of Content Planned

With the No Man's Sky NEXT update set to launch tomorrow, there's A Message to the Community on the No Man's Sky Website where Sean Murray talks about the state of Hello Games' space adventure. The NEXT update is in part a response to customer complaints about the game's release not living up to how it was promoted, and Sean accepts personal responsibility for mistakes and communication failures along the way, while directing praise towards the accomplishments of his team. He also reveals plans for a first season of free weekly content patches to follow the NEXT update and the launch of a new Galactic Atlas Website for the community. Here's word:
We always wanted No Manís Sky to grow and develop after it released. Iím happy weíve been able to do that.

I am so proud of the team at Hello Games, what they did was incredible. Over the years of development the average team size was 6, the final team was just 15 people at launch. No Manís Sky has grown to be a very broad game, ambitious, technically unique and very pretty at times, all the more impressive for a team that is still small.

Whilst I couldnít be prouder of the team, I personally made mistakes. I could talk all day about things I personally would change. Certainly one regret is that the intensity and drama of launch left no room for communication with the community.

We decided instead to focus on development rather than words. Following Foundation, Pathfinder and Atlas Rises, we really want to include you, the community, more.

We know that a million gamers played on the day we launched Atlas Rises. That everyone who bought Atlas Rises played for 45 hours on average and 90% rated it positively. We know that 20% of players hit over 100 hours, and 5% hit over 1000. We know that over 200 million hours of No Manís Sky have been played to date. It makes us happy, but desperate to communicate better.

A little while after the release of No Manís Sky NEXT, Hello Games has planned its first season of weekly content and community events. This will be free for all players, with no microtransactions.

We are also launching a new website dedicated to the community, which weíre calling the Galactic Atlas. The site features points of interest in the No Manís Sky Euclid Galaxy, all nominated by you through the survey we created earlier this month. This will grow in functionality and expand over time, in part through your feedback.

The surveys for Atlas Rises will stay open until the launch of NEXT, so there is still an opportunity to contribute to the archive!

Galactic map roadmap

One day I hope to reach a point where I feel No Manís Sky is ďfinishedĒ, but luckily thereís still so much more we want to do. Working on NEXT feels important to us, but I know itís not the end of the journey. We know the journey would be more fun together.

Thank you for playing No Manís Sky, thank you for playing Waking Titan, and we hope you enjoy everything still to come.

Sean
