With the servers being combined we can all clearly see that numbers are falling. Some deal needs worked out with Sony and Microsoft to allow crossplay between the two consoles. We know it's possible fortnight did it. From what I have heard Microsoft is down and Sony is the problem. The only way I see the game I've devoted so much time to, to survive is crossplay. New players only play a couple of rounds get smited BY seal clubbers and that ruins it for the rest of us.

Top dog never wants to give ground.  Microsoft didn’t with the 360 and Sony won’t with the PS4.  Obviously the ones who lose here are really the players, but the top dog rationale is that you can buy their console instead.  That’s just life with consoles.

I'm not against crossplay, but what makes you think it will be any better not to get seal clubbed? I heard that a lot of the veterans started  on xbox. It stands to reason that the seal clubbing could get worse if consoles merged. I don't think that is a good reason for it not to be done. Just saying that part of the gameplay might not be better. :)

A few years ago there was a server merger on PC. 
But not because the player base has dropped but to be able to offer a better game performance! 
Crossplay on console will not come so fast because unfortunately SONY and XBOX are too big competitors.

With Fortnite on switch now, there has been alot of pressure on Sony to allow PS4 cross play. Since Xbox players can play their Fortnite account on switch but PS4 players can't. Whether it is enough to get Sony to budge or not is the big question though.

It could have been a solution a long time ago. But now, I think even crossplay cannot rescue this game.
And that is not the fault of either Microsoft or Sony - only WG is to blame.

With the One release back in 2015,they should have stopped the 360 support! Of course, in a short-term aspect, they would have lost a good number of the playerbase. But for long-term imho, it would have been better.

Today, in 2018, WG is even more dependent on the 360 players, when their 20% quota is right.

The 360 issue is a whole different topic than crossplay.

 

1. WG always wanted crossplay. So WG is definitely not to blame on this one. It is Microsoft and/or Sony denying crossplay.

2. WG cannot abandon the 360 as it is most probably bound by a contract. - You cannot simply do that.

If you're a guy just put on a dress. Crossplay problem solved.

1) Yeah, I know that. I was referring more to WG's inability to develop the game any further.

 

2) Probably or maybe probably not!

It is the easiest way for the game to survive, but not the only way. WG can save it themselves by simply fixing the problems that keep getting put off (like balance, etc.) and actually fulfilling their promise of Clan Wars. But You are probably right - it may actually be that cross platforming is the only way the game can be saved as I doubt WG is going to put forth the effort.

I am no Sony fanboy but I have been a PlayStation player since the first version was released. Buying the first, second and fourth version was good decisions but with the PS3, I should have bought a 360 instead. Now I own a PS4, a PS4-PRO and an XoneX. I know that last generation it was MS that said no to crossplay and it was probably the smartest decision from a business standpoint, the same can be said about Sony doing the same right now... At least short term, but in the long run I think that Sony would benefit by being “the good guy” and just open the floodgates and let us play with our friends regardless of what console we own. Sony and MS can still compete with their exclusives like TLOU, Halo, God of war and so on. 

 

So from a consumer perspective, xplay would be great and would result in a lot of goodwill towards Sony. Unfortunately Sony seems to stand by their in my mind, long term moronic decision of not allowing xplay. But who knows!? A single day can change everything!
