Does Deep Rock Galactic have crossplay?

Crossplay is present in Deep Dock Galactic, but it works in a fairly unconventional way. Crossplay works only between Xbox users and PC players who purchased Deep Rock Galactic in the Windows 10 Store. At the same time, if you are a PC user who purchased the game on Steam, there won’t be crossplay with Xbox.

Many people thought that this crossplay feature would be fixed with the release of Deep Rock Galactic on PlayStation consoles. But the only feature that appeared with the release of the game on PlayStation is the cross-generation play between PS5 and PS4. Sadly for many players over the world, developers did not add full, widespread crossplay to the game.

Could crossplay be added to Deep Rock Galactic in the future?

Our main hint at the future of Deep Rock Galactic's crossplay comes from an old blog post released a year ago. It was dedicated to the then-upcoming Season 2, but the devs released important information about the crossplay here.

They said, “Be aware the console launch will not include cross-play between PlayStation and Steam or Xbox but will support cross-generation play between PS4 and PS5. We are still looking into solutions on how to implement this, but at this point, we won't make any promises - we are only a small team, after all.”

It becomes evident that the developers are eager to work on and add crossplay to the game. But as they have only a small team who works on Deep Rock Galactic, it is impossible to talk about the specific release date for crossplay. We'll have to wait and see!
