Getting to Next
A timeline of the major moments leading to the latest update
NoMan’sSky begins life, although at this early stage it’s a spare time project called Skyscraper which Sean Murray is working on solo. After JoeDanger2 ships, Murray goes full-time on NoMan’s Sky and other members of Hello Games move onto the project. NoMan’sSky’s first teaser trailer goes live. Six months later, NoMan’sSky makes its E3 debut during the PlayStation conference. The game releases in August. Three months later the Foundation update adds content such as base-building, new modes and more. March’s Pathfinder brings vehicles and permadeath, while August’s AtlasRises fleshes out story and makes other players visible as orbs.
