Despite the announcement of no new updates, Red Dead Online continues to attract a dedicated community. This multiplayer spin-off invites players to explore the Old West in a shared environment with friends. Many players are curious about the possibility of cross-platform play in this expansive online world.

Red Dead Online, the multiplayer version of Red Dead Redemption 2, is reminiscent of GTA Online’s format, allowing players to either collaborate or clash within the game’s richly detailed Wild West backdrop.

The question is, is Red Dead Online cross-platform? And does it allow players across PC, Xbox, and PlayStation consoles to engage in cross-play with those who own the game on other platforms?

Is Red Dead Online cross-platform?

No, at the time of writing in 2024, Red Dead Online still does not support cross-platform play. This means that those playing on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles will only be able to play with others on the same platforms.

It also seems unlikely that the functionality will be added to the game, as GTA Online, Rockstar’s older and more successful multiplayer game, also hasn’t added it. This would suggest that it’s not coming, or is highly unlikely to ever arrive.

However, never say never. If Red Dead Online ever adds the feature in the future, we’ll be sure to update you.
