No Man’s Sky Update Coming This Week, Hello Games Reveals in New Message


After weeks of silence, Hello Games provided a status update on No Man’s Sky today.

Dubbed The Foundation Update, a new No Man’s Sky update will go live later this week. It will add the foundations of base building, while also “putting in place a foundation for things to come.” Hello Games will publish detailed patch notes once the patch is live.

After mentioning that No Man’s Sky was in development for five years, and they released seven patches on PlayStation 4 and PC in the six weeks following launch, Hello Games added, “In the nine weeks since then our small team has been hard at work on development, testing, and certification for the Foundation Update. It won’t be our biggest update, but it is the start of something.”

Hello Games then acknowledged that they’ve been quiet these past weeks while the “intense and dramatic” discussion continued:

The discussion around No Man’s Sky since release has been intense and dramatic. We have been quiet, but we are listening and focusing on improving the game that our team loves and feels so passionately about.

Positive or negative feedback, you have been heard and that will truly help to make this a better game for everyone.

Re-affirming their commitment to No Man’s Sky, Hello Games concluded by saying, “This update will be the first small step in a longer journey. We hope you can join us.”

No Man’s Sky is on sale at various retailers for Black Friday, including the PlayStation Store in North America, where it’s $35.99 USD this weekend as part of the latest Flash Sale.
