No Mans Sky is Coming to the Xbox One
Indie developer Hello Games have announced that No Man’s Sky Next is deep in development as another free update for existing players on ‘PlayStation 4 (PS4™) computer entertainment system’ and PC, but that is not why we are covering this news. We are covering it given that the game will be launching on Xbox One.
In August 2016, a small indie development team Hello Games, released the No Man’s Sky on PS4 and PC. It had quite the rough start, and had PR reps and dev-team staff defending the game for what it was versus what it promised. Regardless, millions of gamers worldwide have spent hundreds of millions of hours voyaging across its vast, procedurally-generated sandbox universe - exploring, trading and fighting in a living breathing universe.
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.”
So, what about Xbox One owners. Well, they 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.
