We know for a fact that a lot of people were waiting for the latest Battlefield game, a series that many consider being even better than Call of Duty.

But that’s another discussion, one too long to squeeze here at this moment. Many of you already know that creators have also enabled cross-play for PlayStation, PCs, and Xbox devices.

This means that you can play with friends across multiple platforms in All-Out Warfare, Hazard Zone, and Battlefield Portal.

However, Xbox players shouldn’t feel left out, because it has just been announced that they will gain a lot more control over this feature on Microsoft’s consoles.

Battlefield 2042 will have an On/Off switch for cross-play

Currently, cross-play is turned on as default and allows play between PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5.

Cross-play between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is also possible, but only between those two platforms due to limitations of the older hardware and the fact that these consoles cannot partake in 128-player battles.

But if you just want to play with your fellow Xbox fans, this is not possible at the moment, like it is on PlayStation consoles.

This is all about to change, however, as it has just been announced on Twitter:

So, soon, if you simply don’t want to be paired with players from PlayStation or PCs, you can choose this option from the game’s settings menu.

The good news is that you won’t have to wait very long for this to happen. as this new feature is supposedly coming with the next patch.
