Dead by Daylight Hints at Possible Cross-Play Arrival in Future
Could we see players across platforms haunting one another in the near future?
It’s the game with a bunch of horrible, famous killers that are thirsty for blood and sacrificing terrified human characters. And thanks to a new tweet from the official Dead by Daylight account, it looks as if the cross-play could be on the way.
Tweeted yesterday, the Dead by Daylight account posted a simple two-emoji tweet that had a crossed-fingers emoji and a play button. Pair the two and you’ve potentially got cross-play. Either that or the developers, Behaviour Interactive, is crossing its fingers in hopes the play button works on their remote. Who knows. I think it’s the former.

The title is has been available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One for a while, and in 2017 it had sold over 3 million copies. Last year it launched on the Nintendo Switch. If cross-play is coming, then you can more or less expect to see those platforms coming together, however, players do have concerns regarding PC users against console users. I’m sure there’s probably going to be some features in place to make it fair, such as how Apex Legends plans to only match PC and consoles if there is a PC player on your team.
At this moment in time, if this is for sure a cross-play announcement, it’s not clear when the update bringing the feature could land. For me personally, seeing as a good deal of gaming stuff appears to be happening in the Fall, I imagine it’ll be around then.
Dead by Daylight is currently available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
