PC - XBox One Cross Play Confirmed

PC - XBox One Cross Play Confirmed - Sea of Thieves - MMORPG.com

Rare has confirmed that there will be Sea of Thieves cross play between PC and XBox One players. The announcement came from Rare during last night's Microsoft presentation. Windows 10 PC players will be able to game with XBox One and XBox One X players when the game launches across both platforms in early 2018. The idea is to "play the game, not the device".

Player habits are changing. How and when we watch or play games is very much in an “on demand” world. Therefore one of the other advantages to cross play is, for example, if a family member is watching Netflix through the Xbox One in the living room, you can just jump onto your Windows 10 PC or laptop and carry on from where you left off. Then when they’re finished and want to join you in-game, you can simply invite them in and potentially even be in the same room as your newly formed co-operative crew. This level of luxury in choosing the game you want to play – instead of only playing on the device that’s available – is a really powerful ability for a lot of our audience with more than one device, and we want them to be able to take full advantage of it.
