No Man’s Sky got its latest major expansion today in the form of outlaw, but it won’t be the last: Hello Games has repeatedly promised to keep adding procgen space adventures.in an interview IGNfounder Sean Murray promises that while Hello Games’ next project is a big one, work on No Man’s Sky won’t slow down.
How big is it? Possibly on par with No Man’s Sky. “We’ve been doing some very ambitious things for some time now,” Murray said. “It’s a small team, but we like it that way.”
Murray went on to say that the scope of the project is probably bigger than you’d imagine a small studio could handle. “Similar to No Man’s Sky, even if we had a thousand people working on the project, it still seemed impossible,” he said. He also said that the development of the new project will not interfere with the ongoing work on No Man’s Sky.
It’s unlikely we’ll hear more about Hello Games’ next project for some time.Sean Murray learned Doing a project quietly without blowing expectations is probably the best way to avoid the kind of backlash that No Man’s Sky received at launch. But it’s interesting to speculate on what a new game with No Man’s Sky scope might look like. I can’t even imagine.
Hello Games has released a game since No Man’s Sky. It’s The Last Campfire, developed by just two people, and pretty much works as a palate cleanser. Murray is calling it the Hello Games version of Pixar shorts in 2020. “It’s a way of fostering creativity and new sounds in the studio,” he said.
While we wait, there’s bound to be more No Man’s Sky stuff to indulge us in.new Outlaw Expansion Added pirate missions, contraband smuggling, pirate spaceports, and more. Oh, and the cape.
