Rainbow Six Siege And For Honor Support Cross-Generational Play

Ubisoft revealed copious details about its games and cross-gen/cross-play support.


After unveiling and rolling out Ubisoft Connect--the combination of the Ubisoft Club and Uplay services--the company has detailed some of the games that support cross-generational play.

Ubisoft said that For Honor and Rainbow Six Siege feature cross-gen support, meaning anyone who owns these games can play together on the same console family. Cross-gen won't work if you're playing on PlayStation 5 and your friend is playing on PC or Xbox One. Ubisoft confirmed that more details on cross-gen play will be revealed "in the near future."

The company also said that Rainbow Six Siege will support cross-progression between current- and next-gen consoles as long as players are transferring their data between the same console family. It's possible to carry data over from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 or Xbox One to Xbox Series S / Series X but not between PlayStation and Xbox consoles. The same sort of cross-progression support (and restrictions) are also be applied to For Honor.

Ubisoft outlined some of the Assassin's Creed games--including Assassin's Creed Syndicate and the Chronicles Trilogy Pack (which includes Assassin's Creed China, India, and Russia)--that won't work with PlayStation 5. Check out our full list of incompatible PlayStation 4 games.
