Destiny 2 is available on a huge number of platforms at this point, including Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, PC, and Google Stadia. However, you’re currently limited to playing with those on the same platform as you. This used to be the standard for nearly every game, but many modern first-person shooters have started offering crossplay support, such as Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Luckily, crossplay is coming to Destiny 2 in the future. But just when is Destiny 2 getting crossplay?
When is Destiny 2 getting crossplay?
Though Bungie hasn’t given a firm date, it said in late January that crossplay would be coming to Destiny 2 later this year.
It has been making changes to the game’s current systems in order to facilitate this move, including changing recoil to accommodate for those using mouse-and-keyboard control versus a controller. There will almost certainly need to be more changes once the feature is implemented, not only to make things balanced for cooperative events, but also for ensuring the Crucible stays fair.
In current crossplay-enabled games like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, you can also choose to only play with those on your console, so it’s possible this option could be included in Destiny 2, as well.
Cross-save is live while you wait
It won’t let you play between two different platforms, but Destiny 2 does offer a cross-save feature right now. This lets you unify your platforms across one account, letting you play the game on whatever platform you use: PlayStation, Xbox, PC, or even Stadia.
This means that if you traditionally play on Xbox but your friends want to play on PS5, you should be able to do so without having to restart. However, once crossplay has been enabled, this will no longer be necessary.
