Dragon’s Dogma 2 will not have Crossplay for no reason other than it is not a multiplayer game. Rather than being joined by other human players, player characters will be joined by Pawns, NPCs who will learn and adapt with you on your adventure. According to the Dragon’s Dogma 2 website:

Players can customize their own main Pawn,
who will always accompany your Arisen,
and enter a covenant with up to
2 additional Pawns from other players through the network.

The last part of this section is where the line gets blurry. While there will be no Crossplay, Dragon’s Dogma 2 players will connect to a network and recruit two pawns created by other players. Someone may even pick your Pawn to adventure with them! It is currently unknown if this Dragon’s Dogma 2 network will be platform-specific or will allow players to utilize Pawns from players on any platform.

Crossplay, or cross-platform play, describes the ability of players using different video game hardware to play with each other simultaneously. For example, someone playing Destiny 2 on their PlayStation 5 can play with someone else playing on their PC. Most multiplayer games released across platforms are embracing cross-play as a new standard, even if it doesn’t yet apply to every title. A related concept is cross-save, where the player’s progress in a game is stored in separate servers and can be continued in the game but on a different hardware platform. Most cross-platform online multiplayer games, such as Diablo 4 and Final Fantasy 14, utilize cross-save. It is unknown if Dragon’s Dogma 2 will utilize cross-save.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 will be released on March 22, 2024, on all major platforms. CAPCOM is still drip-feeding us information as time goes on so there is sure to be more juicy info that comes out before it releases. Make sure you check out our other guides on Dragon’s Dogma 2.
