Red Dead Redemption 2 Rumor: Rockstar Planning Cross-Play Support For Xbox One And PS4?
There are rumors going around that there are discussions being held by Rockstar, Microsoft and Xbox One. The talks are purportedly about Red Dead Redemption 2 getting cross-play support for the two platforms. If these rumors are true, Xbox One gamers can play the game with their PS4 friends without any trouble.
What Happened To Sony's Original Stance?
These rumors of Red Dead Redemption 2 cross-play support are in contrast to the recent move by Sony to block PlayStation cross-play with Nintendo and Xbox games. Could RDR2 be the exception in Sony's rules? The rumors indicate that it was Rockstar that is pursuing the project of getting cross-play support of RDR2 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Is This One Of The Reasons Why RDR2's Launch Was Delayed?
Fans will recall that the release date of Red Dead Redemption 2 was delayed. Rockstar claimed that they had to delay its release because they wanted to develop "the best experience possible" for RDR2 fans. However, some are speculating that Rockstar's desire for cross-play support from other platforms may have also induced the developer to push back the game's launch date.
So far, no details have been furnished by the companies supposedly involved in the cross-play project for Red Dead Redemption 2. Given the original stance of Sony with regards to cross-play support for other platforms, it seems the deal may not even come to fruition. However, Rockstar claims that it is in good terms with Microsoft.
Microsoft Is Said To Be Open To The Idea
If that is the case, some observers believe that of all video games developed by Rockstar, it would be Red Dead Redemption 2 that could make this cross-play project possible. In the past, Microsoft said it is open to the idea of cross-play between the two platforms. Eventually, a PC version could be developed as well. Rockstar said it will release RDR2 in the spring of 2018. Fans should keep themselves posted on this website for any breaking news in this regard.
