Hello Games has announced that “Next” is an upcoming expansion to the game and is expected to launch in August. The team has also revealed plans to bring the game to XBox One.

We call this update “Next” because it’s an important next step on a longer journey for us and the community. We’ve been working our socks off on this and it’s by far our biggest update so far. It will be free to existing players and we’ll continue to support No Man’s Sky in this way for the foreseeable future.

We’ve learned a lot over the last few years, faster than we would have liked. I’d love to avoid talking completely and just make things people can play, but we knew this was going to leak anyway and I think it’s news that should make a lot of folks happy.
