Sean Murray, founder of Hello Games, commented:
I’ve been working on this game for nearly a third of my life, and it’s been more successful than we ever planned or dreamed. It hasn’t always been easy, but the thing that has been our guiding star throughout has been the players and the community.
There’s no further details available on No Man’s Sky Echoes yet, but more info will be revealed next week. Murray added that there’s “still a lot we want to try, so much we are still excited for,” with Echoes being the next major step. “Our journey continues. Thank you so much for your support.”
No Man’s Sky has come a long way since its launch in 2016, and initially fans were disappointed by the perceived lack of content and failure to deliver on previous hype. However, Hello Games has done a fantastic job over the past seven years of improving things, with major expansion and quality of life improvements resulting in a huge overhaul for No Man’s Sky, as well as bringing it to PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.
