All cross-platform games (PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC)

Steven Petite

Not that long ago, the thought of cross-platform online multiplayer between Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo sounded like a pipe dream. In the past year or so, thanks to games like Minecraft, Fortnite, and Rocket League, competitors have realized that supporting cross-platform games is a win for all (Sony only realized this in late 2018, but better late than never). It has even found a home on mobile platforms, with iOS and Android players enjoying games together and expanding the player-base for free-to-play games, as well. Not all cross-play games support the feature on every system, however, with certain titles leaving out Nintendo Switch, Stadia, or PC.

While the feature is still in its infancy, it will likely continue to expand in the coming years. Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare supported cross-play right from its launch, Dauntless has been surging as the first game to have full cross-platform support at launch, and more are likely to follow in its footsteps as we move deeper into. Cross-play will even likely be possible with certain games on next-generation systems like PS5 and Xbox Series X, the latter of which won’t be getting true exclusive games for at least a year. Games still separate players based on control input, as well, so console players won’t be at a disadvantage against PC players who use a mouse and keyboard.
