The physical Xbox One version of the game will be distributed by 505 Games, while the digital version will be able through the Xbox Store.
Xbox One owners will be able to explore this vast procedurally generated universe later in 2018, including all content developed to date and a lot more surprises from Next yet to be announced. 505 Games will distribute the physical Xbox One version worldwide.
The press release also details what Hello Games has been up to for the past 18 months.
In the last 18 months, Hello Games and No Man’s Sky’s community of avid followers have continued to build out the game through 3 major updates (Foundation, Pathfinder, Atlas Rises) and dozens of smaller patches.
“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.” said Sean Murray, founder at Hello Games. “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.”
