Need for Speed Heat is about to get crossplay, marking a new milestone for publisher EA, as announced on the official website for the game on Monday.

EA Will Offer Crossplay Feature for the First Time in Need for Speed Heat

The game will be the first of EA's offerings to allow crossplay between PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One starting with an update which will release on Tuesday, June 9. In addition to the crossplay feature add-in, there were some fixes including the reduction of the DR1005 error -- the full details of which can be found in the June Update Notes.

It was also announced that developer Criterion Games is currently working on the next entry to the Need for Speed franchise. No other details were shared, but it's likely we can expect to hear more during EA Play Live, the publisher's summer game showcase, later this month.
