No Man's Sky director Sean Murray expressed his excitement and surprise over two players landing on the same planet. He and his team had "added a 'scan for other players' to the Galactic Map to try to encourage this happening", but had not anticipated how quickly it would occur.

No Man's Sky Creator Surprised by Players Meeting
It would seem the big, wide, procedurally-generated universe of No Man's Sky has gotten a little less lonely for players. News has broken that two players streaming the game had landed on the same planet, which prior to release was said to have a statistically slim chance of happening.  Naturally, this came as a major shock to game director Sean Murray, prompting him to state "that has blown my mind".

Murray claimed that he and his team at Hello Games, the studio that developed No Man's Sky, had specifically included a feature to scan for other players to ensure such an event, but had not predicted how soon after launch it would prove fruitful. He continued to express his excitement through a series of Twitter posts, saying:
"We want people to be aware they are in a shared universe.  We added online features, and some Easter Eggs to create cool moments.

We hope to see those happening... but too many of you are playing right now.  More than we could have predicted.

It is a testament to how amazing our network coders are that Discoveries are still working at all.

For instance, over night we hit 10 million species discovered in NMS... that's more than has been discovered on earth.  WHAT IS GOING ON!!!"
No Man's Sky released for PS4 on August 9th, to generally positive reception. The PC version will be available for purchase tomorrow, August 12th.
