Will Battlefield 2042 have crossplay? That's a difficult question to answer right now, despite how badly many in the Battlefield community want to know. With the recent announcement of Battlefield 2042, there has been a flood of questions, including about a beta test for the game, gameplay, and which platforms the game will be releasing on. One of those burning questions is about crossplay between current generation consoles, last generation consoles, and PC players. Here's what we know about Battlefield 2042 and crossplay so far.

Will Battlefield 2042 Have Crossplay?

Crossplay has been the subject of many rumors about the next Battlefield game, but Electronic Arts and Dice haven't said anything definitively about crossplay capabilities in Battlefield 2042. Crossplay would make sense, as other popular multiplayer games have embraced crossplay between console and PC, but right now, players will have to wait for Dice to reveal more information about the game.

Crossplay could be more difficult to navigate, primarily due to the divide between current generation consoles and last generation, and the potential for a competitive advantage to be created from smoother and faster performances. At any rate, with the launch date in October still months away, players and the Battlefield community will have to wait for more detailed information from the development team.
