Does Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands have Crossplay?
Short answer is yes, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will have crossplay and will be fully cross-platform compatible on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will be a new offshoot in the popular Borderlands franchise that will support cross-platform play across all platforms – including PlayStation.
Sony has a well-deserved reputation for being anti-crossplay, having first refused to allow it in some popular online games such as Fortnite and Rocket League, among others. However, while the studio finally enabled crossplay for those two titles, Borderlands 3’s crossplay update, which was released in June 2021, did not include compatibility for the PlayStation 4.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands’ crossplay support was confirmed by Gearbox CEO and president Randy Pitchford in a tweet on Sunday, who stated that PlayStation crossplay would be supported and explicitly mentioned Sony for “working together on this.” Collaboration is a key part of the game, and adding support for the Sony platforms should allow more people to enjoy playing together in the future.
