So in the last month Sony annonuced that they were now opening crossplay to developers and that there are alreadyt some games that have intergrated it or are in the process of adding crossplay. 

(Article about PS4 crossplay) --► https://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/all-cross-platform-games/

 

With this said i think it would be interesting to know what Wargamming make of a potential crossplay: 

 

Are they currently working on crossplay for all console's, including the Xbox 360 version?

 

Wether the Xbox 360 version would be shut down to accomadate a PS4/Xbox One crossplay?

 

Wether the recent +1/-1 matchmaking woulg be more viable with crossplay?

 

Would there be mayor updates for the game with the introduction of crossplay i.e graphics update, new game modes?

 

Would they consider an PS/Xbox crossplay feature in the future if not they don't currently consider crossplay nessesary? And if so when?

 

I obviously don't expect anyone from Wargamming to answer any of these questions, but it would be nice to have some information on a potential crossplay feature, however small, as i think crossplay should be one of the ultimate goals for Wot console.

As soon as Sony announced that any developer had access to crossplay without restriction, WGCB went silent on the issue.

"The 360 was released in 2005. The Super Nintendo was released in 1991. With the new Gen next year, the 360 will be farther behind the newest console than the Super Nintendo was behind the 360."

yea after saying the only thing stopping it was sony not allowing cross play when PS4 WOT launched and players asked for it.

If they want to prolong the life of the game they need to make it happen. Since they've said they have already got it working maybe it's 'heads down and work out the kinks' before making any commitments publicly. At least I hope so.

Look here, i think the latest thread: 

http://forum-console...42#entry4863042

 

@MaxChaos24 (Posted 02 October 2019 - 01:51 PM): We've been cross play enabled since the game existed on 360 as we don't rely on Sony or MS since we have our own dedicated servers that run the game. The only thing that prevents cross plays is that we are not allowed to turn it on. We've been asking since Day 1 and so far they aren't budging but we'll continue to ask.

Great thanks for the link, wasn't sure if there had been any feed back on the topic since the PS crossplay announcement.

this would boost the queue numbers and even lower tiers could field full teams.    SO many of us would love to see this.   What the heck is it going to take to make it happen???   :angry:

It Isn't happening for us.  Their excuse was removed and they immediately went silent.  Either development expense is needed or they think this will hurt the double up money from Xbox players moving to PS, or the freaking 360 will keep it from happening.  Either way, we won't get it and likely all questions/comments about it will continue to be ignored from here on.

When we do get tank cosplay what will you choose? I'm thinking STB-1. So sexy.

If they do, WoT console will have hell to pay on the forums and social media.  That would basically tell the world we're not getting cross play because of the 360.

 

My dislike of +/- 1 pales in comparison to my hatred of Loaded Dice.

Said this when I 1st seen the announcement on the wow discord channel, was quite shocked, considering during they alpha stages it was a straight No when asked.

This place would go into meltdown

Sorry but, regional games aren’t eligible for crossplay. 
 

That is reserved for global game development companies.

Yesterday on stream they said that cross play is coming "eventually", that they will make an announcement soon as they are talking with first side partners. So at least some good news. On the other hand, they are proud to be one of 4 companies left in the world that support Xbox 360 and that they are not going to drop their support.

At least the XBox 360 Players can be happy that they still get full support from WG until Microsoft decide to take it out.

And I was as well excited in yesterdays stream that there is still a hope that we could get crossplay.

RaiBot mentioned there will be an announcement about that within the next weeks.

Having tried crossplay on a certain fish based new FPS I can confirm it works well and I had no bother with it. WoT needs it if it's to survive.

Once again, the vast minority (360) holds back the majority. 

 

Yer feelz are apparently more important than forward progress.
