While Titanfall 2 will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC when it launches later this year, you’ll only be able to play with people playing on the same platform as you are as cross-play was not implemented. However, despite not making this feature a priority for the launch of the game, the developer is not ruling it out to be incorporated at some point down the line.
Titanfall 2 game director Steve Fukuda recently spoke with Shacknews regarding the cross-play between PS4-PC and Xbox One-PC, where he said that “We aren’t planning on doing that at launch. For now, the answer is no, but we aren’t closed to the possibility.” This is something that the developer has touched on in the past, citing multiple issues that could potentially creep up if console players went against PC players.
The game recently got its first multiplayer beta last weekend, giving gamers a taste of 3 different game modes and the tweaks that have been made to the gameplay. The grappling hook is one of the new things being brought to the table, allowing even more mobility than the first game did. However, perhaps the biggest change that the game will be getting over the first is something we can’t see in these betas, and that’s the introduction of a singleplayer campaign.
Titanfall 2 will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 28th. The second multiplayer beta will be available to take part in this weekend, though it is expected to be the final beta for the game. The beta will only be available to play on the console versions of the game.
