Apex Legends Crossplay – The Feature We Want But Aren’t Getting

Developers do realize that crossplay is important, though, so there’s that

Apex Legends has evolved almost continuously since it launched in early 2019 with new maps, weapons, operators, and various improvements yet, here we are more than a year in and crossplay has yet to be added to the game. Competing games like Fortnite, Destiny 2, and even Call of Duty Warzone have it, so why doesn’t Apex Legends? Well, the General Manager of Apex Legends, Dusty Welch, and the game’s director, Chad Grenier, sat down with Game Informer to discuss season 4 and in that interview, they were asked about the status of crossplay.

With crossplay originally being discussed when Apex Legends was launched, where it’s at is a question on just about everybody’s mind. The truth is, that it’s difficult to implement and just isn’t ready yet.

“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. 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.”

So, the people behind Apex Legends recognize the importance of crossplay but stopped short of expressing even a hint as to when it’s coming or what the status is. Is Respawn working on adding crossplay to Apex Legends or has it been on the backburner where it will remain for who knows how long. There is a reason why only a handful of big-name games have the capability, but it’s starting to become expected, so we have to assume that we’ll see it come to Apex Legends sometime in the fairly near future.
