During a recent chat with Gamespot, Cold Iron Studios CEO Craig Zinkievich confirmed that Aliens: Fireteam Elite won’t support cross-play, but cross-gen will be there instead.

Aliens: Fireteam Elite Achievements

We live in a world where cross-play is slowly becoming normal for players on all devices and playing with your friends on a different platform is easier than it ever has been before. Well, not for Aliens: Fireteam Elite at launch according to Cold Iron Studios CEO, Craig Zinkievich, when chatting with the folks over at Gamespot: "There is currently no plan for cross-play at this time." That isn’t a straight 'no,' so maybe we will see it added post-launch. Aliens: Fireteam Elite will, however, be featuring cross-gen play, meaning that you’ll be able to play with your friends on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.

Aliens: Fireteam Elite is set to launch on August 24th and we're giddy with excitement. Were you hoping to play with some friends on PlayStation or PC? Let us know down below!
