Apex Legends dev believes console crossplay is “important” for the game
Respawn Entertainment said console interaction is “important” for Apex Legends, and added that this feature is “something you can expect in the industry.” (via Eurogamer).
In an interview with Game Informer, chief operating officer and general manager of Apex Legends, Dusty Welch, was not able to say when we saw the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players coming together. However, he acknowledged that the missing feature is frustrating “on a personal level.
“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Fortnite, PUBG, and Terraria are just some of the games that allow their players to pair up regardless of their preferred platform.
“I think that in the cross-game we see that this is something expected in the industry and is important for a game like ours,” he said.
“Chad [Grenier, director of Apex Legends] and I are obviously big fans of playing our game at work and in our free time – and we drive home on Friday or the weekend and want to play with each other and we are on different systems.”
It seems that the developer understands that players want to communicate with their friends through the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but the team has not reached this point.
“On a personal level, yes, we would like to do this and have a weekend party. I think this is an important thing to get to, ”
concluded Welch. Apex Legends recently returned duets forever at the new Old Ways event, due on April 7th. City Capture is a Bloodhound’s test in which players will battle both groups of thieves and savages.
