Apex Legends Cross-Play Will Only Match To PC If PC Players Are On Your Team

Console players won't be running into PC players willy nilly.

Apex Legends Season 5 - Loba

Last month, we got big news for EA and Respawn’s Apex Legends. Not only would the game be coming to the Nintendo Switch, it was also announced the game would be getting full cross-play. It’s quite an exciting prospect for any kind of competitive shooter in this vein, as it means a potential flood of new people from other platforms to play with and against. But apparently, not everyone was super hyped, as some console players worried about being dominated by PC players. Well, it seems that won’t be an issue.

Jake Smullin, Software Engineer at Respawn Entertainment, confirmed in a TikTok video (of all things) that the cross-play feature would not match console and PC players automatically. The only way that will happen is if you already have a PC player on your team.

“Wanted to clear something up about Apex Legends cross-play,” he said. “You will only be in PC cross-play lobbies if you have a PC player on your team.

“Have been seeing lots of console players worrying about this, but don’t. Everyone should be excited. So no more ‘not cross-play, PC is gonna dominate us’.”

Apex Legends is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is set to launch on Switch sometime this Fall alongside the cross-play update. The developer is also aiming to potentially launch mobile versions of the game at some point this year.
