Does Apex Legends Support Cross Progression? (PS4, Xbox One, Switch & PC)
Apex Legends is available across almost all platforms imaginable, including Playstation, Xbox, etc. So people are quite confused whether Apex Legends support Cross Progression or not. Before we tell you the answer, let us tell you a little bit about Cross Progression.
What is Cross Progression?
Cross Progression is the ability to retain your current game progress even if you use a different platform to play the game. For example, if you are playing on a PC and suddenly want to play on PS5, then you can use the same account to play on PS5 as well.
Does Apex Legends Have Cross Progress?
In simple words, Apex Legends does not have Cross Progress as of now, especially across different devices. Apex Legends has Cross-Play, which shouldn’t be confused with Cross Progress; as we’ve explained, the two are quite different.
Players on the PC platform, on the other hand, have cross-progression. If you played Apex on Origin, you may link your account to your Steam account and transfer your progress. You may also carry over your progress from previous console generations (e.g., Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S).
However, currently, Apex doesn’t support Cross Progression across different devices. This means that you can not carry all your progression from your Playstation device to your Xbox or Nintendo Switch.
This is quite shocking because one of the most popular Battle Royale, Fortnite, does support cross-progression. But we have some good news regarding cross-progression.
Is Cross Progression Coming To Apex?
As per the rumors and various trustworthy resources, yes, Cross Progression is indeed coming to Apex very soon. According to Respawn, cross-progression in Apex Legends will be available in 2022.
Respawn has mentioned cross-progression in Apex Legends on several occasions and has stated that cross-progression would be available in the future.
There were rumors of Cross Progression being developed for Apex back in 2021. However, it appears that the development was halted due to some major cyber-attacks on Respawn’s games including Titanfall and Apex Legends.
However, in a Reddit session last year, Apex Legends' former director of communications, Ryan K. Rigney stated that cross-progression will be available "next year." He said, “It’s not only that you have to solve the technical challenge of merging existing accounts, but there are also legal and contractual issues to navigate with purchasing on other platforms. Different regions have different laws. It’s a mess. But we’re working on it, and we’re committed to delivering it.”
When Will Cross Progression be Implemented in Apex?
It is quite hard to estimate the release date for Cross Progression. Cross Progression has not been implemented in the latest Season 13 update, which was the game’s major update. But we can expect it to come in the latter portion of 2022.
Cross Progression is a huge blessing for gamers who like to play on multiple platforms. Being able to carry their account on whichever platform they want will be huge for the Apex community as they’ve been longing for this feature for quite some time.
So we are also eagerly waiting for Cross Progression because currently, Apex Legends does not have Cross Progression.
