Cross-Platform Play

In a recent interview with Game Informer magazine, the idea of cross-platform play was brought up to Respawn devs, and they provided a strange response:

MIND BLOWN: Cross-play features in a ton of popular games, so is it a case of ‘when’, rather than ‘if’?

“We are obviously big fans of playing our game — at work and in our free time — and we go home on a Friday or weekend and want to play with each other and we’re on different systems.”

“On a personal level, yes, we’d love to do that and party up on the weekends. I think it’s an important thing to get to.”


So does this mean we could be seeing crossplay sometime in the near future?

Well, no further comment was made by Respawn’s dev team, but they could undoubtedly do it if they wanted to.
