Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky is available now for the PS4 and will be released within 3 days for the PC. The game was always rumored to have a multiplayer mode that resulted in other players being able to meet in the universe of No Man’s Sky. This doesn’t appear to be case though, as confirmed by two different players who decided to meet at the same location.
To test this theory, reddit user TheGalacticCactus decided to team up with another player as they both livestreamed their game on Twitch. Despite being in the same location, albeit at a different time, they were still unable to spot each other in the game. This result can be seen in the screenshot below.
No Man’s Sky developer Sean Murray did tease about there being multiplayer and the possibility of players seeing each other but that was back in 2014. In a recent tweet made by the developer, he confirmed that there is indeed no multiplayer in the game, which has now been confirmed by the players.
To be super clear – No Man's Sky is not a multiplayer game. Please don't go in looking for that experience.

Despite the lack of multiplayer, No Man’s Sky is still a highly ambitious game that offers the player a vast universe to explore. If you love space exploration and randomly traversing around on planets to harvest material or discover new locations and species, you might enjoy your time with No Man’s Sky.
No Man’s Sky will be released on August 10th for the PS4 and August 12th for the PC.
