Behaviour Interactive had some great news for Dead By Daylight console players as they will have cross-play and progression coming soon. The details were released in a new blog post on their website, going over the details of how things would work out between players on Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. We have a snippet of the info below, which would indicate that this is just the start and that it appears one day they hope to link consoles, PC, and mobile players all into the same system the same as Fortnite has. How soon that will happen is unknown, but this is all good news for console players to have a combined playerbase across multiple systems.
Now that all lights are green, we are preparing the activation of Cross-Play and Cross-Friends on consoles. In this scenario, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will be able to play together, and with people on PC. We are polishing the last details to make sure that it will only impact our game positively. As we are still monitoring the situation and numbers on PC, we cannot give you a specific date for now, but we can definitely say it is coming really soon! (like before the first snow, in Montreal (hopefully).
Once Cross-Play is live on all platforms, we will carefully monitor the data to ensure the stability of the game. If it becomes unstable, we will disable cross-play to allow us to work on a fix. Player experience first! Players will have the choice to opt-out of Cross-Play if they prefer. We have seen a lot of questions about potential Cross-Play with Dead By Daylight Mobile, for now, this is not part of our plan. The game system and architecture are significantly different. We are prioritizing the release of cross-play between PC & Consoles first to make sure that the experience is smooth for the players on those platforms.
