No Man’s Sky just saw another major update on Wednesday, and will celebrate its sixth birthday later this year. But despite the game’s long life, its creator says it isn’t close to finished.

In an interview with IGN, No Man’s Sky creator and managing director at Hello Games, Sean Murray, revealed that the team isn’t ready to put their sci-fi sandbox game to bed yet, and probably won’t be for some time.

“As many updates as we’ve done since launch and as many bucket items we’ve checked off, our list of things we’re excited about never seems to get any shorter,” said Murray. “The team are always coming up with new things that they want to do with the game.”

Murray went on to talk about the high energy levels on his team, despite how long they’ve been working on No Man’s Sky. Even with constant updates, and a major turnaround from the game’s disastrous initial launch, new additions are constantly being built.

Hello Games is currently working on more updates for No Man’s Sky in addition to the studio’s next game. In an interview with Polygon last year, Murray explained that the team is working on a “huge, ambitious game like No Man’s Sky.” But even as the studio works on its next title, a chunk of the team is working to improve No Man’s Sky even further.

As for how long that split will last, it’s impossible to tell. But based on what Murray is saying, No Man’s Sky players have plenty more updates to look forward to.
