16-player online multiplayer was added in the NEXT update, and while the name of this component seems to imply that multiplayer will take another step forward this summer, Hello Games still doesn't consider No Man's Sky to be an MMO.
Hello Games has announced yet another expansion for No Man's Sky.
Writing in a post on the Sony Blog, Hello Games' founder Sean Murray reveals that No Man's Sky BEYOND will be made up of three major updates. The first of those updates is No Man's Sky Online, which will offer new ways of exploring the universe by allowing all players everywhere in the game to come together.
At the moment, that's more or less all we know about Online, but Hello says that the changes are in response to the game's Next update, which launched a year ago.
Like Next, No Man's Sky Beyond is a free update that's actually multiple smaller updates rolled into one. Entitled No Man's Sky Beyond, it'll be free to all players and will include something that the team is dubbing "No Man's Sky Online".

The ruling by a NY state appeals court raises the prospect that a sitting president could now be called for sworn questioning. She was among the 19 women who publicly accused the president of sexual misconduct during the 2016 campaign.
Disclosure: Our Alec wrote a bit for No Man's Sky back before launch.
"Inspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man's Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action". We'll likely hear more about the rest of the update in the coming weeks.
These changes are an answer to how we have seen people playing since the release of NEXT, and is something we've dreamed of for a long time.
In the press release, Murray said that each update to No Man's Sky has been more successful than the last, Next especially so.
