It’s fair to say that MLB The Show 22 will be the largest game in the franchise’s history. For the first time ever, MLB The Show will be available on the Xbox and PlayStation consoles, and for the Nintendo Switch. Because MLB The Show 22 will be available on so many platforms, it’s fair to wonder whether the developer of the franchise San Diego Studios will allow users to play with those on different platforms. We have an answer to that question, and we think you might like what SDS has to say about crossplay.

Much like MLB The Show 21, MLB The Show 22 will feature crossplay. San Diego Studios confirmed via the game’s website that as long as users can play online with friends, crossplay functionality will work. 

Additionally, MLB The Show 22 owners will also be able to enable cross-progression, to make progress on different platforms. For example, Xbox Series X players can create a Diamond Dynasty team and use that same squad for the Xbox One or a completely different console like the Nintendo Switch.

To enable this feature, players will need to sign up for an MLB The Show account on When doing so, players will need to link any Xbox, PlayStation, or Nintendo profiles to The Show account to use cross progression.
