Back in the day if you bought a console and you wanted to play multiplayer games, you could only play with those who had the same console. This means that generally groups of friends would try to get the same console so that they could play with each other. These days it’s starting to change as developers are trying to make their games cross-platform compatible.

The good news is that it looks like EA is considering something similar for Battlefield V. During EA’s earnings call, VP of investor relations Chris Evenden was asked about cross-platform support for Battlefield V. The question was based on how games such as Fortnite have experienced massive success thanks in part to its cross-platform compatibility.

According to Evenden, “We’re looking at key franchises in terms of how we can deliver cross-platform play in a similar way that Fortnite has, especially some of our titles that have a broad and diverse player base. The ability to bring PC to mobile or mobile to console can bring family and friends together, and we think that’s an important part of our future development profile. Expect more from us on that front in the future.”

He doesn’t actually confirm if Battlefield V will support cross-platform play, but it seems that EA isn’t closed to the idea. Maybe it will come in a later update, but so far there has not been any mention of it since the game’s launch. However whether or not Sony will play nice is also another hurdle to overcome. In the meantime Battlefield V is set for a release on the 19th of October.
