Currently in the “trial” phase.
Have you had the desire to crush console noobs like the toxic PvP player that you are? Good fortune has been delivered as Microsoft announced that Gears of War 4’s Social Quickplay mode with now be a cross-play playlist.
For now, cross-play is in the “trial” phase and as The Coalition monitors feedback and data, it will make cross-play support a more permanent feature for Social Quickplay in the future.
It should be noted that Core and Competitive playlists will still remain platform agnostic. You won’t be playing on Xbox One and dealing with Windows 10 players or vice versa, even if a recent cross-play Test weekend indicated evenly matched performance between both platforms.
This is due to The Coalition wanting to keep Ranked matches as competitive and closely matched as possible. More Core and Competitive solutions for Windows 10 users will be introduced in the future though.
