The Reason Why Cross-Play Is Not Allowed In Other Playlists
Cross-Play will not be supported by Gears of War 4's Core and Competitive playlists. The Coalition wants to make the matches in the playlists to be exclusive and be different from Social Quick playlist, as per PC Gamer.
However, The Coalition might provide different matches in Gears of War 4's Core and Competitive playlists in the PC version. The players just have to wait as to when the developer will be releasing new matches in the two playlists.
The Coalition is making sure that Gears of War 4 will be enjoyable than before. The developer is determined to give its fans the best they deserve because of the previous issues that they have encountered before.
