Hello Games Breaks Silence With No Man’s Sky “Foundation Update”

No Man's Sky - Gamers Heroes
After months of silence following the poorly managed and controversial launch of No Man’s Sky, developers Hello Games have reinitiated communication with the community with today’s announcement of the upcoming release of “The Foundation Update”. The announcement comes from a post on the official website in which Hello Games discuss the direction of the game with the upcoming update “the first small step in a longer journey”.

[testimonials user=” email=” name=’Hello Games’ position=” photo=”]This week Hello Games will be releasing an update to No Man’s Sky. We’re calling it The Foundation Update, because we have added the foundations of base building, and also because this is putting in place a foundation for things to come. Detailed patch notes will follow, and release will be soon.

Coming from five years of intense development, immediately after No Man’s Sky released the team spent six weeks updating the game with 7 patches across both platforms (the last of these was 1.09 on Sept 24th which you can read about here. These fixed many of the most common or critical bugs and issues post-release. In the nine weeks since then our small team has been hard at work on development, testing and certification for the Foundation Update. It won’t be our biggest update, but it is the start of something.

The discussion around No Man’s Sky since release has been intense and dramatic. We have been quiet, but we are listening and focusing on improving the game that our team loves and feels so passionately about. Positive or negative feedback, you have been heard and that will truly help to make this a better game for everyone.

This update will be the first small step in a longer journey. We hope you can join us.[/testimonials]

Both the game and the developers have a long way to go if they hope to restore faith in the project but even the implementation of base-building could be too little, too late.
