Is there cross-play in Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC?

Addressing whether cross-platform play is possible in the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2.

With the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC comes the question of whether cross-play features are now present. While cross-platform play is slowly becoming the norm, there are plenty of games that don’t offer cross-play for one reason or another. To explain where Red Dead Redemption 2 stands, we’ve put together a quick guide addressing whether cross-play is available in Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC.

The simple answer to the question of whether there’s cross-play in Red Dead Redemption 2 is no, there’s not. Despite Red Dead Redemption 2 being available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and now PC, cross-play between these three platforms is not offered.

What’s more, the only area you’d use cross-play in Red Dead Redemption 2 (if it were available) is in Red Dead Online.

Given that Red Dead Online gets regular updates from Rockstar, it’s possible that cross-play between Xbox One, PS4, and PC may be added in the future. Until something like that happens, there’s no way to play with people on other platforms in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Stay tuned, as we’ll update this guide should Rockstar make the decision to include cross-platform play in an update for Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, and Red Dead Online.
