Unfortunately, Battlefield 5 does not support cross platform play of any kind. This means that players on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will not be able to play together. Instead, you’ll all need to be playing on the same platform if you wish to play with your friends.

There were some rumors about Battlefield 5 supporting cross platform play earlier in the game’s release. However, there have not been any kind of official statements on when or even if players can expect Battlefield 5 to support cross play. This is unfortunate for those wanting to team up with others on various platforms.

We’ll continue to keep an eye out for any updates to this issue, but right now we don’t see EA or DICE bringing Battlefield 5 to the cross play library.
