No Man’s Sky Next brought multiplayer to the massive and unending world of No Man’s Sky, giving players away to team up with their friends and explore an expansive collection of worlds. Many players are curious, though, does No Man’s Sky Next have crossplay support? And if so, how do you get started playing with your friends using the No Man’s Sky crossplay? Luck for you, we’re here to answer that question, but you may not like what we have to say.

Does No Man’s Sky Have Crossplay?

The sad answer here is that unfortunately there is not any type of crossplay multiplayer currently available for No Man’s Sky. This means that you will need to be playing on the same platform if you want to play the game with you friends. The good news is, No Man’s Sky is now available on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, so you have plenty of options for how you can and will be able to play it with your friends.

There’s a lot to do in No Man’s Sky, and while crossplay isn’t a function right now, there’s always the possibility that something may come down the line. Hello Games has stated that they have a ton of content planned to release over the remainder of the year, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that there is plenty of chance for more options to come in the future. For now, though, all we can do is wait for official word of whether crossplay is something that we’ll ever see or not.
