The latest on the Crossplay issues reads: “In preparing the Day 1 builds for PC and Consoles, we discovered a desynchronization between the PC and Console code.
“This results in a backend mismatch which causes players to be kicked out of a multiplayer game that includes both Console and PC players.
“We are treating this issue with the highest priority and we are working on patches that will synchronize all platform code, which will resolve these issues.
“We have temporarily turned off automatic matchmaking between PC and Consoles. Steam & Epic players can still Crossplay together, either by invite or via matchmaking.
“Should you invite a Console player into your PC game via an invite code (or vice versa), the game will initially connect, but one player will eventually be kicked out of the game. We highly recommend against doing this until we have patched all versions of the game.”
It has been confirmed that a patch is being worked on to fix this Crossplay issue but it won’t be available to download today.
And it’s unclear at this time when Outriders Crossplay will be re-enabled for PS4, PC and Xbox One players.
So gamers should prepare for a flurry of fixes and patches to be launched over the coming week as Square Enix looks to work out all the ongoing kinks.
