Does Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt have crossplay?

The simple answer is yes, Bloodhunt does feature crossplay support, meaning that players on PlayStation 5 and PC can enter the same matches. There is, however, a pretty major caveat.

While matches can be populated by blood-suckers on both platforms, only those on the same platform can join the same squad in the lobby. The Elysium, Bloodhunt’s pre-game lobbies, are platform-specific, so you’ll have to rely on dumb luck to stumble across a friend with different hardware.

Sadly, this means groups separated by the platform can only compete against one another and cannot enter a game on the same team.

This will be disappointing to console users who were hoping to squad up with their PC pals, and developer Sharkmob is yet to confirm if support will come later down the line.

However, there is hope for vampires playing on different platforms that cross-platform play could be coming in full. A hotfix, released in May 2022 has been added to the game to resolve a reloading bug.

A Twitter user asked the Sharkmob team if the fix would resolve the crossplay problems, only for the devs to reply that they are “talking about it” and “very aware” of the issue.
