Respawn give a confirmation that Apex Legends cross-platform play is in development. But, there has yet to be a real date for when we are able to wish it. It is a shame, because other battle Royale games like Fortnite already allows cross play across all video game platforms. While Apex Legends is not there quite yet, but it can be heading in that direction sometime soon. Well, let us learn everything we know regarding Apex Legends cross platform play right here.

In this time, Apex Legends is only available on PC, Xbox One and PS4. The players of Apex Legends on each platform cannot play together. Of course, it is able to make them upset. Especiallly, for the groups that have the players with different platforms in their ranks.
As we explained above, McCoy confirmed that Apex Legends cross platform progression will not be a thing due to the way systems were set up early on that cannot be reconciled after the fact.
