Apex Legends Crossplay Will Not Mix Player Console And PC

Crossplay is one of the features in video games that have two different effects. On the one hand the console player can play with PC players at the same time, but on the other hand they also have to face cheating that is often done by PC players, or cool language called cheater.

This happened at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which made console players turn off the crossplay feature with longer matchmaking consequences until Infinity Ward and Activision resolved cheater problems.

But as if learning from the case, it seems like this was not done by Respawn Entertainment at Apex Legends. This is because they will not mix console and PC players in one lobby simultaneously like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare during matchmaking.

This was explained by Jake Smullen, Apex Legends Software Engineer through his TikTok account that the player console will not meet the PC player automatically when the crossplay feature is implemented. Console players will be able to play with PC players if they are in a group or party with friends. In other words, if they don't invite friends from Origin or Steam, then they won't meet with players from that platform.

Unfortunately not yet explained whether the feature "party without auto-matchmaking between platforms" will also apply between consoles or only the exclusive console x PC. This is because superior mouse keyboard controls are more reactive and faster than controllers, while console x console won't be a big problem.

Respawn also hasn't explained at all whether they will support the mouse and keyboard when a crossplay is released like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on the console.

Apex Legends can now be played on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Meanwhile, the crossplay feature is planned to be released in conjunction with the release of Apex Legends on Steam and Nintendo Switch this fall or late 2020.
