I like to occasionally watch Youtubers and keep an eye on SM and HG Twitter Account for any new info. By around this time, there is usually hints and clues dropped regarding an anniversary update. I would say that many of the fans are accustomed to this as well. Well, I figured it would be entertaining to speculate and have a post ready for anything regarding news on an anniversary update. As usual, keep hype in check and keep expectations realistic.
Some are noticing a few things and, while they may be nothing, it may be something. HG has already spoken regarding bigger things to come for NMS recently. HG also decided to get nostalgic and post a list of all the updates from day 1 till now. The servers were having an issue around the same time and also our latest quicksilver item(backpack) seems intentionally time consuming to unlock.
My guess(all for fun) is that there might be some news around the time of unlocking the current quicksilver item, or they are stalling for time because they have something big but they need more time to get it right. Im hoping for the later. Good things take time.
