Red Dead Redemption 2 Cross-Play Support Rumors
Last week brought in loads of amazing news about gaming as well as some rumors were also echoed. One of the catchiest rumors was the Cross-Play Support for Rockstar’s groundbreaking Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS4.
However, the RDR2 failed to make an appearance on the Big E3 event but some rumors about the game’s Cross-play feature surfaced. According to the new rumors, the game is going to support Cross-Platform Play. Because of no word from the game’s developer or the publisher, these rumors are still making rounds over the web.
Based on the previous reports, a cross-play functionality between the PS4 and Xbox One is still in its early stages. Many of the reports suggested that these rumors are true, but Sony is somehow not willing to support the idea of RDR2 cross-play feature.
It’s a speculation from the day the news about RDR cross-play surfaced for both PS4 and Xbox One. As the tech giant, Sony is still reportedly against the RDR2 Cross-play between the PS4 and Xbox One, it seems it will never ever be seen by the fans as well.
Since the game is delayed until 2018 and there is no release date confirmation, this news of Cross-play actually doesn’t have much weight either. Once the game is released, we’ll see what new features it brings to the plate. Check out more about RDR2 Cross-play here.
