With Hello Games’ repeated promise of supporting its space-faring sim for years to come, it’s not so much a question of if but when is the next No Man’s Sky update.
Thanks to some deft emoji-wielding on Twitter – a now established means of communicating that an update is on the horizon – from Hello Games boss Sean Murray, we know an update isn’t too far off.
So, when can we expect the next No Man’s Sky update?
Pretty soon, if fan theories circulating on gaming haunts like Reddit carry any weight.

When Is The Next No Man’s Sky Update?
Earlier this week, the official No Man’s Sky Twitter posted a series of flexed biceps emojis, one of which came sided by a collage of all previous updates.
In the past, the game’s Twitter account has hinted at an upcoming update with an emoji linked more or less to its theme or major features.
A snorkeling mask preceded the launch of The Abyss, an underwater-focused update. A compass emoji came before Expeditions, an update introducing exploration-heavy shared events. And so on.
Extrapolating an entire update’s contents from a single emoji may seem fanciful. But, the No Man’s Sky community has turned deciphering Hello Games’ cryptic tweets into an art form. Over on the No Man’s Sky subreddit, one user had this nugget to impart:
“On July 20th, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon. Make what you will of this interesting fact!”
Could we see the next No Man’s Sky update land as soon as today? We’ll keep our eyes peeled on the game’s Twitter handle and update this piece accordingly if anything pops up.
Now, this is just a theory, but Hello Games tends to launch updates a mere days after the Twitter emoji posting, so a launch, or at the very least, a trailer today, isn’t too far-fetched.
Whether today, later this week or the next, a brand new NMS update is coming very soon.
