Mortal Kombat 11 is finally releasing worldwide, giving players on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC the chance to challenge their friends in grueling online battles and rise to the top.
As with most fighting games releases on multiple systems, however, many players are hoping to be able to play the game with friends on other systems, without the need to purchase an additional copy of the game per system to enjoy what is on offer.
Sadly, however, Mortal Kombat 11 is not one of those games to have crossplay available at launch, and Warner Bros. hasn’t announced plans to bring the feature to the game anytime in the future.
While the feature won’t be available at launch, the developers have been actively discussing the idea to implement it, though. Some of the folks over at wccftech were able to talk to the developers at the start of the year where they expressed their desire to add the support in the future.
The plan, at the start of the year, was to implement cross-platform profiles and friends list in the Summer or Autumn of 2019 on PC while other platforms got support for the feature over the course of the year. Matchmaking would then come sometime at the end of the year, likely around November or December.
Until Warner Bros. officially confirm the service, however, its best to take these plans with a pinch of salt and pray that the service comes sooner rather than later.
