Apex Legends Dev Provides Update On Future Crossplay Potential
Apex Legends is having a fairly busy month so far. The Respawn Entertainment battle royale title recently released an exciting teaser trailer for the game’s upcoming event, which will explore Bloodhound’s mysterious origins. Between the upcoming event and the addition of loads of new features, loot, and the permanent return of duos mode, the game is more exciting than ever at arguably the most perfect time, given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. If that’s not enough, developer Respawn is once more discussing the future potential of crossplay for the game.
Speaking in a recent interview with Game Informer about Apex Legends Season 4, Apex Legends general manager Dusty Welch and the game’s director, Chad Grenier, were asked about the current status of crossplay. “I think on crossplay we see it’s something that is kind of expected in the industry and is important to a game like ours,” Welch said, responding to the query.
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.”
This talk of wanting crossplay for Apex Legends on a “personal level” by no means translates into crossplay actually happening for the game, though at least it’s still on the team’s minds. Given that Sony is much more amenable to the idea than the company has been in the past, there are certainly fewer obstacles in the way of it happening.
Apex Legends is free-to-play for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
