Battlegrounds aiming for cross-play between PC and Xbox One
PUBG’s executive producer Chang Han Kim wants to bring cross-play to the game between PC and the upcoming Xbox One release. However, there are issues.
In an interview with VG247, Kim said there are barriers to bringing cross-platform play.
“Cross network play between the PC and the console is definitely something we want to do down the road, and we don’t anticipate we’ll have any technical issues with that,” Kim said.
“But… when you consider the competitive side of the game, I do feel that there’s a balance issue between controllers and keyboard and mouse. That’s what’s making it difficult for us to do right away. If we’re going to allow players to use controllers we need to have the aim assist added in and things like that. We’re not going to be supporting it right away, but it’s something we’d like to look into later.”
So, technically, it’s fine. However, I understand Bluehole not wanting to put the console players at a disadvantage. Considering CS: GO offers cross-play though, it shouldn’t pose too much of an issue.
