Apex Legends is one of the biggest and best battle royale games out there, but it’s missing what many consider an important or essential feature–console crossplay, which would allow PS4 and Xbox One players to team up or fight against each other. In a new interview with Game Informer magazine (as relayed by GameSpot sister site Comicbook.com), general manager Dusty Welch and director Chad Grenier have talked about wanting to include this feature.

Welch told the magazine that they saw how crossplay is now “something that is kind of expected in the industry and is important to a game like ours.” He says that he and Grenier personally play on different systems at home, and wish they could team up.

“On a personal level, yes, we’d love to do that and party up on the weekends,” Welch says. “I think it’s an important thing to get to.”

Crossplay was teased for Apex Legends at the time of its launch, too. It’s a difficult feature to implement, of course, which is why only a few major titles–like Fortnite and Destiny 2–have it as a feature. The Call of Duty franchise also has crossplay as of Modern Warfare and Warzone.

Apex Legends is adding map rotation as part of the game’s next event, so you’ll be able to pick between both maps for the first time.
