No Man's Sky is an absolutely bonkers game in terms of scope, and that's before you realise it comes from a tiny development studio based in Guildford. Hello Games has always been a small team, but moving from Joe Danger to a simulated, procedurally generated galaxy filled with 18 quintillion fully explorable planets was an outrageous leap to make. By the sound of it, the studio is gradually working towards another massively ambitious game.
Speaking to IGN, Hello Games co-founder and managing director Sean Murray briefly touches on the developer's next title, which is apparently not a direct follow-up to the space exploration epic. However, it sounds like it'll be just as impressive coming from the small studio. "For a while now we've been working on something pretty ambitious in the background. It's a small team but we like it that way," Murray says. "Similar to No Man's Sky, it's the kind of project that even if we had a thousand people working on it, it'd still seem impossible." That's quite a statement.
While Hello Games has a few folks beavering away at this new game, No Man's Sky is far from finished. Just today, the team announced and released the Outlaws update, another enormous (and free) expansion that brings game-changing new features. You can read more about that through the link.
