While the previous installment, Wildlands, did not feature cross-platform play, Breakpoint may support cross-platform play at some point in the future. When it launched on October 4th, 2019, Breakpoint did not have cross-platform play. However, that’s not to say that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint will never feature cross-platform play.
The Creative Director Eric Couzian has mentioned in an interview with MMORPG.com while it is “not for the moment (cross-platform)” that they “will have information later” regarding cross-platform play. When asked about a general time-frame, Couzian stated that they do not know yet when the information will come out. The interview does feature other information regarding Breakpoint, we suggest you check it out if you are interested in Breakpoint and what it has to offer.
It does seem promising that they wish to support cross-platform play. Maybe Ubisoft has seen the benefits of cross-platform play as other large titles and developers have supported it in their games such as FortNite, Apex Legends, etc. Wildlands currently has a low online player count when looking at the individual platforms. If Wildlands supported cross-platform play, players would be able to play with each other regardless of their system and would not feel the effects of a dying online player base. While Wildlands is insanely popular right now among fans of the series, eventually it will see a decline in players like every other game. We hope that cross-platform will be added one day to prevent the sort of barren, online wasteland most games see after their popularity dies off.
With no other information currently available and no timeline was given by the developers, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint does not currently support cross-platform play and it is unknown when it will. We do however have high hopes for cross-platform play in the future.
