    Star Wars Battlefront 2 is one of the best multiplayer shooting games in the history of the franchise. You can play as your favorite Star Wars character and feel every ounce of the Force in the game. Of course you can play this with your friends. But what if your friends are on a different platform? In this article, we’re going to see if Battlefront 2 is crossplay.

    Crossplay defines the game’s ability to allow different platforms to play with each other, regardless of whether you’re using a mouse and keyboard or a controller. Alas, Star Wars Battlefront 2 does not have a crossplay function. It’s a shame, but EA only implemented crossplay in the next multiplayer game, Star Wars Squadron.

    Other multiplayer titles like Apex Legends and Fifa also have this feature. Fans were very disappointed with EA’s decision, but at the time of Star Wars Battlefront 2’s release, cross-platform multiplayer just wasn’t there.

    Unfortunately, EA already announced in April 2020 that Star Wars Battlefront 2 has made its appearance last major update. This statement means we won’t see any major changes to the game, including the crossplay feature. The servers for Star Wars Battlefront 2 are still playable, which is a good thing because the game is a lot of fun.

    Until then, the only way to play with your friends is to play the game on the same platform. Even private and modified servers cannot implement cross-play function as only the developers can solve this problem themselves. We can only hope that EA eventually develops a sequel to Star Wars Battlefront 2, with minimal launch issues and, even better, cross-play.
