No Man’s Sky had to be one of the biggest disasters in gaming after Batman Arkham Knight from 2015. From leaks to unfulfilled promises, No Man’s Sky was a huge mess that led the developers at Hello Games to go in full sleep mode. All of the major Twitter handles, including the founder of the studio, Sean Murray left Twitter and made a sudden comeback.
In July 2018, the folks over at Hello Games and Sean Murray released some major news. The folks over at Hello Games introduced the biggest update the game has ever seen. Dubbed as No Man’s Sky, Hello Games the update brought some major improvements. From better textures to multiplayer gameplay, from improved mechanics to much better creations, it’s a full package for anyone who was disappointed with it’s initial launch from 2016.
The major update landed as a free update on the July 24, 2018 and has finally brought back life to the game. In fact, one week into it’s launch the game had reached 96,954 active players in a day. Since then, it seems like the hype has pushed back. While this was expected, it’s pretty respectable that the game has stabilized with around 7k players since then. That’s quite a dip, but the dip has been quite consistent.
Whether this is the fate that Hello Games would accept or if they’re planning to release a new game, that’s something only the future would answer.
