Cross-play is apparently already on the development roadmap for Baldur’s Gate 3. This means players on PlayStation 5 and PC – and at some point, Xbox – will all theoretically be able to play together online in the future.
Confirmation comes from Larian’s director of publishing, Michael Douse, who told me the studio always intended to do cross-play but it was one thing too many to get working for launch. The PS5 version comes out today, remember; the PC version came out at the beginning of August; and the Xbox versions will arrive at some point this year.
“It was always in the planning,” Douse told me, “but we knew it wouldn’t be for launch. It’s in the roadmap, and though we have an idea of when we’d like to get it ready for, we don’t want to put a date on it until we’re sure.”
