The concept is simple, allow owners of the game to play together regardless of whether they are on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and even Nintendo Switch.

With more and more AAA franchises allowing cross-platform play, there could well be a chance that we see Grand Theft Auto 6 join this exclusive group of cross-platform video games.

Will GTA 6 Be Cross-Platform?

Cross-platform play is becoming an increasingly popular way of uniting all players of that particular game.

We have seen the inclusion of cross-platform play most recently on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, uniting the frequently isolated PC community with the console community; which has been supported a lot more than the PC side of the game.

In contrast, this is not the case for players of GTA.

Both console and PC communities have thriving scenes offering wide and diverse ways of playing the game.

One benefit of GTA on the PC is the ability to create mods for the game. Including cross-platform play could open up the potential of mods becoming available for console players, something that has never happened in the history of the franchise.

 

Is It Down To Rockstar?

In some cases, the lack of cross-platform play hasn't had anything to do with the developers of the game.

It often boils down to the likes of Sony and Microsoft setting aside their differences (and the console war) to do what's right by the people that buy the games and want to be able to play with anyone and everyone across every possible platform.

Yes, Rockstar Games will likely have a say on whether GTA 6 will include cross-platform play but it is uncertain as to whether it will open up the GTA world for everyone to enjoy on every platform that the game will be available on.

 

Potential To Be Awesome

Uniting the PC and console GTA communities has the potential to be an awesome move.

Allowing console players to access some of the amazing mods that the PC scene has created could inject even more life into a thriving online community. Rockstar Games, you know what to do!
