It’s been a rather busy year for No Man’s Sky and developer Hello Games, as even during the pandemic, we’ve seen major content drops for the title and there’s one more on the way. The No Man’s Sky next update is called “Origins,” and is out next week!
Sean Murray, head at of Hello Games announced this in a new post on the official website:
Next week Hello Games will be releasing an update to No Man’s Sky. We’re calling it ORIGINS.
Detailed patch notes will follow, along with next week’s release.
Four years ago we announced FOUNDATION, our first major update for No Man’s Sky, we promised “It won’t be our largest update, but it is the start of something”. Those words were true at the time, and they ring true for Origins. We called it Origins because it is the beginning of something new, as No Man’s Sky continues to grow and evolve.
Beyond came out last year, bringing VR and hugely expanded Online play, and since then we have focused on releasing more regular updates. SYNTHESIS, BYTEBEAT, LIVING SHIP, EXO MECH, CROSSPLAY, and DESOLATION have been some of our most popular, surprising and transformative updates – leading No Man’s Sky to have its biggest year to date.
We know there is a huge appetite in the community for No Man’s Sky content, and the team has worked our socks off this year to deliver in difficult circumstances. We have been quiet, but we are always listening and focusing on improving the game that our team loves and feels so passionately about.
This update will be another small step in a longer journey. We hope you can join us.
Once we know more details regarding this patch, we’ll be sure to let our readers know.
