    Hey guys,

    Had discussion with a friend and we were wondering if pCARS will support Cross-Platform Multiplayer. If I buy the PS4 version and he buys the PC version, are we going to be able to race against each other?

    Good question, but I doubt whether that is even technically possible.

    i believe it has been discussed but the chance of it happening is down to the Sony and Microsoft. the two companies may allow console to pc but not console to console.
    which is a shame as everyone bar console makers want cross platform mp

    It was tried once with need for speed and was a huge flop. Mostly because PC users had the ability to hack their games while PS users were stuck.

    MS doesn't allow it from what I recall, hence why War Thunder is only on the PC and PS4, not the XB1

    Nope its a patching issue, there are cross platform games on X1 and 360.

    I know, I'm referring to cross platform between other consoles, like XB to the PS

    Same issue again, that and mixing the communities may make things a little toxic.

    The patching isn't problem as war thunder works well it's more to do with Sony and Microsoft
    I think it was best to leave it out as it's unfair for those on xb1 if PC and ps4 can play together. It also segragates a community which you don't want to do.

    There won't be cross-platform multiplayer - there was a confirmation by @WMDCARS on twitter.
