That’s according to Respawn Entertainment engineer Jake Smullin, who wrote on TikTok this weekend (via Wccftech) that PC players will only be included in cross-play matches if players have a teammate using the platform.
As well as being able to use mouse and keyboard, PC players can benefit from far higher frame rates than console players, potentially offering an advantage in matches.
“Wanted to clear something up about Apex Legends cross-play,” Smullin wrote. “You will only be in PC crossplay lobbies if you have a PC player on your team.”
He added: “Have been seeing lots of console players worrying about this, but don’t. Everyone should be excited. So no more ‘not crossplay, PC is gonna dominate us’.”
During its earnings call in October 2019, EA claimed Apex Legends had attracted 70 million players.
