In addition, the studio also touched on the possibility of cross-save and/or cross-play:

We would love to. It’s a huge amount of work to get it there. We’re a smaller team so we’re always prioritizing features and work. It’s one of those things that I would love to get to but stuff like ranked for season two and more content immediately is where we’ve put our focus.

In related news, Respawn has revealed how it plans on dealing with cheaters, confirming the team is setting up matchmaking to lump unscrupulous players together in one player pool.
