Is Diablo II: Resurrected crossplay? Although the game's single-player mode is decidedly a powerful draw for players, giving them a chance to relive one of the archetypal hack and slash loot-a-thons of yesteryear, multiplayer co-op gives them the chance to show off all that loot with friends while they take down demons.

Considering the many platforms Diablo II: Resurrected is set to launch on, cross-platform play would make sense. Here's what we know about the feature's status.

Is Diablo II: Resurrected Crossplay?

Unfortunately for those players with friends on multiple platforms, Diablo II: Resurrected will launch without crossplay.

Design director Rob Gallerani told Eurogamer in February that the team had looked at crossplay, and considered adding it to the game, but ultimately decided against it. In March, producer Matthew Cederquist told IGN Middle East that crossplay would have been hard to implement because of the different UIs, control schemes and so on the game used across platforms.

But Gallerani also told Eurogamer the team might decide to add it later on, and it's something he and his coworkers "continue to look at."

Although it won't support crossplay, Diablo II: Resurrected will launch with cross-platform progression. Any unlocks players make on one platform will be available on any platform they choose to play on.

Diablo II: Resurrected launches on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on Sept. 23.
