- Why can’t a game like Overwatch be Cross Platform? It’s 1 of the most popular games on PC, PS4 & XB1 … A game which creates Huge ESports events … A game which is available at the same price on all platforms … So why can’t we have Cross Platform? Putting into consideration that it’s a paid game, not a free game, But what are the chances of loss? Just that a player can play with his same account on 2 different platforms? There’s a very less chance that a player will be having 2 platforms and will buy the same game on both platforms … Considering that progressing is different for each one … Before it was not allowed, Sony didn’t allow cross-platform with Microsoft the only way that something called cross-platform existed was by “PS4 & XBox players playing with PC players, not with each other” But now Even Sony agreed, As an average user, Not a dev or something … I just thought it’s a Technical issue, They can’t match up different console players against each other… But almost 1 year back Fortnite Cough Accidentally allowed cross-platform by mistake between PS4 users and XBox1 users … After it was discovered they cleared that it was just a BUG … and it has been fixed, So it was never a technical issue? It was just about Policy, But now things have changed … Even Sony and Microsoft’s policy have changed … Can’t our policy change? I’m a player that would love to be able to play with his friends without the need to change my platform and then buy the game AGAIN on the other platform! … I’m sure many of us are having the same issue, Hi-Rez studio which “devs of games like Paladins, Smite & Realm Royale” Said that Cross-platform is coming soon exactly Next January 2019 ! … I’m sure more titles will be joining the competition and allowing cross-platform … So, The question is …Will we join? Will Overwatch EVER be cross-platform? Why not?
