Ubisoft has confirmed Rainbow Six Siege will finally be getting crossplay in the near future, but it’ll be rolled out in stages. Here’s everything we know.
After years of asking Ubisoft for the feature, Rainbow Six Siege fans are close to getting crossplay enabled in the game to let them team up (and headshot) players on other platforms.
The feature has had a staggered rollout so far, but the end is in sight. Here’s everything we know about it so far.
PC players can already enjoy crossplay, albeit only with Siege owners playing on Google Stadia or Amazon Luna.
Ubisoft hasn’t confirmed as yet whether players will be able to team up or take down their friends on PlayStation or Xbox if they’re playing on PC, Stadia, or Luna just yet.
PlayStation and Xbox crossplay will be added to Siege eventually, though, with Sony and Microsoft console owners able to play against each other as soon as next year.
A tentative date of early 2022 has been penciled in, but Ubisoft are still working on the technology behind the scenes. Given that we have crossplay in so many other titles, though, it’s likely not too far away.
Both console families already support cross-generational lobbies. The console cross-play will continue to support that, meaning PS4 and PS5 players will be united with Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S players.
Ubisoft also revealed cross-progression will debut at the same time as console crossplay.
