No Man’s Sky has returned to its former glory after a major update hit the game two years after its massacre. The developers of the game announced the launch of a new major update called No Man’s Sky NEXT. This new update brought major changes to the game mechanically as well as graphically fulfilling the promises they made prior to the release of the game back in 2016.
With the launch of their latest update, players have started to flock the game again pushing the game into the top 10 most active games on steam in terms of player count. According to Steam Charts, over the past week, the game had finally hit the 86K mark after struggling with success over the past 2 years. No Man’s Sky now takes the seventh place on Steam with Rainbow Six Siege, Warframe and GTA V finding 6th, 5th and 4th place, respectively.
These numbers are simply impressive. However, the question is, how much further would these numbers go and how long would the devs over at Hello Games be able to maintain their player count with such immense competition. Given that Fortnite and PUBG have been cashing on the enthusiasm of players with constant updates and new additions, only time would tell how Hello Games plans to keep the game active and fresh for new and existing players.
