The critically acclaimed space thriller No Man''s Sky will be released on the Switch on October 7th.

If you''re interested in playing the game with family members or other players, then you may have to wait for a later down the line. According to the official game website, No Man''s Sky "Switch Edition" will be a one-player experience at the start of the game.

To clarify, the game will still receive all of the "award-winning live service game," but there seemingly won''t be any multiplayer elements. This version will continue to benefit from ongoing development after its launch, so we anticipate a future multiplayer patch.

After mixed-messaging about multiplayer effects, no Man''s Sky was initially released in 2016, but was criticized for lack of playing abilities and features. Several instances of players meeting up and not even being able to see one another.
