Apex Legends developer says cross-play is “important to a game like ours”

Mirage Apex Legends

Apex Legends has had an incredible year as a battle royale. Since its launch, hundreds of thousands of players have dropped into King’s Canyon or Worlds End to get a taste of the action, but players on different platforms still can’t party up to wreak havoc on the battlefield.

In a recent interview with Game Informer, Apex Legends’ general manager Dusty Welch and game director Chad Grenier admitted that cross-play in multiplayer games is “kind of expected” nowadays and the pair would love to see it added.

“I think on cross-play we see it’s something that is kind of expected in the industry and is important to a game like ours,” Welch tells Game Informer according to Comicbook.com.  “Chad and I 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.”

Given Welch’s reponse, it’s fair to say cross-play is on Respawn’s radar. But without a confirmation that it’s coming to Apex Legends, we’ll just have to sit tight and wait until new details are released.
