Is Red Dead Redemption 2 Cross-play? – Feeling like you want to suit up with your friends and rob a train or a bank together in the wild west with some Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online, but not everyone’s on PS5 or PS4, and you don’t know if it’s cross-play? Well this quick guide will answer that exact question for you.
Is Red Dead Redemption 2 Cross-play?
The online aspect of Red Dead Redemption 2, Red Dead Online, is unfortunately not cross-play. So if you’re looking to form a posse, you’ll need everyone to be on PlayStation if you’re playing on PS5 or PS4, with the same going for every other platform. It also unfortunately doesn’t look like the feature will be heading to Red Dead Online anytime soon.
Not due to lack of popularity, but it just doesn’t seem to be how Rockstar operates. GTA Online is still without cross-play, and though its entirely possible that they would like to implement cross-play but can’t due to a technical issue or an issue with a particular platform holder, it could also be likely that they just don’t want to do it.
What Is Red Dead Online?
Red Dead Online is the online portion of Red Dead Redemption 2, which you can purchase as a standalone game or by buying Red Dead Redemption 2 and then accessing it there. Both games are currently available for PS4 and PS5 through backwards compatibility.
