Does Splitgate have cross-platform play? The Portal-meets-Halo arena shooter has taken the internet by storm over the past few weeks, and as players continue to flock to its servers, they're curious about whether or not they're able to match up against their friends (and enemies?) on other platforms.

Here's what you need to know about which platforms can compete against one another in Splitgate.

Does Splitgate Have Cross-Platform Play?

Splitgate's free-to-play open beta is available to play on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Players who want to link up with others from other platforms will be happy to hear game's matchmaking can match players up across those platform lines, making it about as cross-platform as a game can be.

The Splitgate beta recently blew up in popularity, and all that extra attention has prompted developer 1047 Games to extend the beta indefinitely. That indefinite extension carried a secondary effect of delaying the game's official release indefinitely, but it indicates 1047 Games has committed to striking while the iron's hot and riding out the game's newfound, viral popularity.

"We are focused on keeping the game stable for fans, and iterating on the game's concurrent capacity in order to minimize player wait times," said 1047 Games co-founder and CEO Ian Proulx in a press release.

"We want to do this the right way, and we want to be prepared for massive scale when we officially launch, all the while continuing to improve the beta with frequent updates, additional features, and improvements to server capacity."
