No Man's Sky Developer Working on another "Huge, Ambitious Game"

No Man's Sky will soon be No Man's Bye

Hello Games, the folks behind No Man’s Sky, has been hard at work: both at pushing out comprehensive and free updates to their current magnum opus, but also creating the much smaller and very different indie title The Last Campfire, a quaint little adventure game that was released just earlier this year to middling reviews.

And while it might not be anyone’s game of the year, The Last Campfire does beg the question — when will Hello Games work on a bigger title that’s not No Man’s Sky? The answer, as is turns out, is that they’ve already started one… at least, according to Hello Game’s founder Sean Murray, who was talking with Polygon.

While he didn’t say much about the game beyond the fact it’s going to be a “huge, ambitious game like No Man’s Sky”, he did use the opportunity to meditate on the things he learned working on No Man’s Sky for so many years.

"There is this poison chalice or deal with the devil that I think any indie game developer would find actually a very difficult choice, right? The choice that we had with No Man's Sky, where if I was to go back again, I would find it very difficult to know what the right path was. Where you will have incredible interest in your game, you will have a huge amount of excitement for it. But you will be in a rocket ship, launching towards the sun, and you will be building that rocket on the way up.

And there is an excitement and a craziness to that. Where we've ended up with the game, where we have hundreds of millions of hours played and a really happy community and all of that kind of thing, you know, I’m okay with that deal that we did, right?"


So in the end the specter of No Man’s Sky entirely misleading marketing continues to haunt Hello Games, and hopefully won’t stain whatever project comes next.

That sounds about right.
