Couple of excerpts:
Don't expect to find life on every planet, or even most of them, though: Hello Games has confirmed that there'll be simple life (plants, maybe small animals) on about 10 percent of the planets. Complex life will show up less frequently, on about 1 percent of the planets. But very complex life--civilizations, perhaps--will only appear on roughly 1 in 100 million planets.
Speaking of extremely unlikely possibilities...
No Man's Sky has a shared universe, and Hello Games has said that it has a matchmaking style similar to Journey's. You can stumble across someone else working their way through the galaxy, or happen upon a planet already discovered by another explorer. But Hello Games makes it clear that you almost certainly will not find another person during the entire time you play the game.
For there to be a 1% chance that at any moment two or more people are on the same planet, about 600 million people would have to be playing simultaneously.
Soooo you are almost certain to never find anyone the whole time you play the game! That and you will most likely find planets with only rocks on them, and if your really lucky some plants, hit the jackpot and you may find something resembling life. Are these developers retarded??? Sounds like a fun game, surely thats not going to get boring quickly! If they stick to these plans the game will be dead within a couple of months
