    its not going to be NS3, not yet I don't think... UWE probably have a lot of ideas they want to explore at the moment... I don't know why, but I kind of expect some battleground style game, because every other company is trying their hand at it and subnautica came when every other company was dipping their toe in the survival genre.

    Hey I'm up for it, but I'd rather see those kind of games without that third person peeking :/

    Maybe they will take another shot at Future Perfect or what it's called.

    What's next? UWE will get purchased by Valve and the UWE team would make Half Life 3: Natural Selection merging the two universes.

    When you aim for perfect balance, you discover it's a moving target.
    Perfect balance is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellent gameplay.
    NS2 is a moving, breathing thing. We have to be willing to constantly evolve. Perfect balance is constant transformation.

    I just want a game where I can shoot a fish out of a fish gun, and anything the fish hits causes the object to explode into hundreds of other fishes, which causes a chain reaction of fish explosions until my computer crashes.

    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to play Natural Selection 2. The gameplay is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of military strategy and advanced mathematics you won't even win a single game. Theres also the game's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into the game. The maps and artwork draw heavily from Riddley Scott's Alien franchise, for instance. The players understand this stuff, they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depth of the game, to realise that it's not just great, that it also says something about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Natural Selection 2 truly ARE idiots. of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in the Marines' existential catchphrase "how do I get to be so good", which itself is a cryptic reference to the high degree of intelligence required to play the game as intended. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion when spectating a game. What fools... how I pity them. And, yes, by the way, i DO have a Fade tatoo. And no, you cannot see it. it's for the ladies' eyes only, and even then they have to demonstrate that they are within 50 hive skill points of my own (preferable lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid.

    I said this a lot before and will continue to say that ns3 will be a half life 3 mod with ns3_hera as launchmap

    Sorry guys. None of us know what Charlie has planned for the next game (perhaps not even Charlie, yet. ;) ), but all we know is that it is most certainly NOT NS3.

    NS3 confirmed for a Fall 2029 release. :smiley:

    Guys, I figured out the solution.

    The correct answer is: "I'm playing the fuck out of Subnautica."

    I'd like to take a moment to appreciate how awesome it is that you guys skip the whole "second sequel" problem many games have by going straight for NS4. I'm sure it will be great.

    Sorry guys, no NS3 on the horizon. Playing Subnautica *may* give you a glimpse into some more NS-Universe lore though.

    Well I can read lore in a wiki article, but I can't play NS3 in a wiki article.

    Hmm, maybe their next game is going to be one of the VERY oldschool BBS text adventures

    Perhaps after finding the kharaa in SN and fighting it in NS/NS2, they finally get around to making that big PG they wanted in the first place.
    Onwards to the next whatever they will screw up?

    ...hm, now I kinda want a Natural Selection 4X strategy game. Or at least some kind of strategy games based around these giant phase gates and expanding into the galaxy.
