The first title Remnant: From the Ashes, was an excellent multiplayer title with crossplay capabilities ahead of its time. Not only did it have crossplay, but it also had cross-progression options for you to retain all your game progress. With the sequel on the horizon and the legacy of the first title, we're wondering - will Remnant 2 be crossplay?
Crossplay is one of the most marvellous new features in modern gaming, allowing players from different platforms to play together. It has become an industry standard, and most expect crossplay in Remnant 2.
Is there crossplay in Remnant 2?
As of the time of writing, there is no confirmation for crossplay in Remnant 2. While the game has been marketed as a multiplayer adventure best enjoyed with friends, crossplay has not been a prominent buzzword in any of Gunfire Games' marketing.
If crossplay between Xbox, PlayStation 5, and PC was included in the game, we would have seen it as a central part of the game's marketing. However, this has not been the case, and the developers have not made any explicit announcements about crossplay in Remnant 2.
This leads us to believe that the game will initially launch without a crossplay feature. This is unfortunate news if you were looking to play with friends across platforms as soon as the game launched.
Will there be Crossplay in Remnant 2?
There is good reason to hope for the addition of a fully-fledged and functional crossplay feature in Remnant 2. This is because Remnant 2 is a game that gained popularity for its incredible multiplayer. Not only did the first title have crossplay, it even had advanced cross-progression capabilities that would let you transfer progress over to other platforms.
The developers have ample experience implementing crossplay capabilities in the first title. Therefore, it's not out of the realm of possibility that an update to Remnant 2 adding crossplay can come in the future if the game does end up shipping without this feature.
