The feature is also coming to Nintendo Switch "in the near future."

Comments

Developer Behaviour Interactive has provided an update on cross-progression for Dead By Daylight, saying the feature is "closer than ever" to launching.

While an exact release date for cross-progression has not been announced, the studio did confirm that the feature will make its way to Google Stadia and PC via Steam.

"The other important feature we have been working on for the past month is cross-progression," the studio said in a Dead By Daylight update blog post. "In the past couple of months, we have continued developing the cross-progression feature for Steam and Stadia. We are working hard on the final details and we are closer than ever to making it available for all on these two platforms."

When cross-progression does become available, players can transfer their data between Stadia and Steam through a new website Behaviour developed specifically for the feature. Everything from character progress to purchased or unlocked add-on content will carry over between the two platforms.

Behaviour clarified in a separate blog post that cross-progression is not planned for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, saying that while it will continue working on it, there's no guarantee the feature will make its way to other platforms.

"As of today, we cannot make Cross-Progression available on other platforms and we have no guarantee that it will happen. However, we know that this is a community wish, and we will keep trying to make it happen."

Still, the studio did confirm that cross-progression will come to Nintendo Switch, allowing players to transfer data between all three platforms whenever they want. A release date for cross-progression for Switch has not been announced, but the feature will be coming "in the near future."

In August, Behaviour released a Dead By Daylight update that made cross-play available on all platforms. Cross-progression is the latest feature the studio is working on for the asymmetrical horror game. The studio also confirmed that Dead by Daylight will launch on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/Series X
