It’s always fun to play a battle royale with a full lobby. Recently, anyone still playing PUBG finds themselves battling it out against bots more often than not. What would help the community is cross-platform PUBG gameplay on Xbox and PC. But is that possible?

Can You Play PUBG Cross Platform?

You can play PUBG cross-platform, but only on consoles. For example, you can play with a squad of players hailing from PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Unfortunately, this means those playing on PC, where the game originated, cannot play cross-platform.

To reiterate, if you’re playing PUBG on PC, you’re stuck playing against bots or with other players on PC. Everyone else—those on consoles—can play together, though. It’s a crying shame, as the game desperately needs a more cohesive community to form enjoyable, full matches!

What Systems is PUBG Available On?

PUBG, one of the most famous battle royale games of old (recently dethroned by the ever-popular Warzone!), is available to play on the following systems:

  • PC
  • Android
  • iOS
  • Xbox One
  • Xbox Series X|S
  • PlayStation 4
  • PlayStation 5

The only popular system the battle royale game isn’t available on is the Nintendo Switch, though if Krafton has its way, that’s likely in the cards in the future.

Despite its waning popularity, there’s always more to come from PUBG. Insider Gaming recently discussed the next game in the franchise, an extraction shooter!
