It’s unclear if Hello Games has enough people to both work on No Man’s Sky and start building a new project; Sean Murray hinted something was in the works following the release of the space-survival title last year.
“There are other ideas we’ve got rattling around in our heads too,” he said.
“I think video games is just such a largely unexplored field. There’s very few studios that pull off the two game thing, but supporting one game and then kicking off something new–that’s doable right?”
