Is Red Dead Online cross-platform?

No, at the time of writing in 2022, 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.
