World of Tanks will be released on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. And there was announced a crossplay between PlayStation and Xbox, which will appear in the summer of this year.
It was supposed to be announced at the presentation of Sony’s PlayStation 5 on June 4, but as you may know, it was postponed to a later date due to protests in the US.
Now the entire gaming industry is looking forward to the next console generation. World of Tanks is available on the current consoles – should we wait for it to appear on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, or will they work with backwards compatibility?
📄 “I know that colleagues from World of Tanks Console are preparing the game for release on the new generation of consoles – PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in backwards compatibility mode. Previously, the game worked on the same principle on Xbox 360 and Xbox One: the consoles shared the same server, and the players got into the same battle. In addition, as far as I know, a crossplay will be launched in the summer: tankers on PlayStation will be able to play with tankers on Xbox.
Many other new changes and additions are planned and are already being added to the game. To make all of them available on new-generation consoles, Xbox 360 support for World of Tanks was discontinued. So by the time the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X launch, the game will not only be available in backwards compatibility mode, but it will also be greatly transformed both externally and functionally.”
