Apex Legends Cross-Platform Play May Be Added One Day

If Fortnite can do it, maybe Apex Legends can too.


Respawn, the developer behind Titanfall and Titanfall 2, surprised fans by announcing and releasing a new battle royale game, titled Apex Legends, on the same day. Although the game doesn't support cross-platform play, Respawn has hinted that may not always remain the case.

On the Apex Legends FAQ page, Respawn writes, "We currently don't support cross-platform play, but are always working on new features and improvements we can add to our game." So cross-play could come to the Titanfall-themed battle royale game in the future. Given Sony's decision to reverse its stance on cross-play with Nintendo and Microsoft, Apex could feature cross-platform support across Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

[Update: An earlier version of this article theorized that, through cross-platform support, Apex Legends could offer players shared progression across every system. However, in an interview with Eurogamer, Respawn said that cross-progression will never be possible in Apex "due to the way systems were set up early on" which "can't [be] reconciled after the fact."]
